Forgiveness is not a guarantee. Trying to force people into forgiving you is just another bullying tactic. It’s good that you have apologized, and that you have changed. But if the only reason you ask for forgiveness is so it can be given, then it is not remorse. Having remorse for a crime doesn’t mean you should be forgiven. It is up to the person you hurt to either forgive you or not. Forgiveness is not a guarantee just because you have remorse.
