Can I give up the decision of forgiving people for the violation of my rights?
I performed tawbah nasuhah; it was written in the text of repentance that I forgave everybody for the violation of my rights and I did. However, I regretted it afterwards because when I remember what some people did to me, I do not want to forgive them. They did not ask forgiveness from me. I did not say to most of them that I forgave them for the violation of my rights. Is it possible for me to annul this forgiveness?

Dear Brother / Sister,
If you forgave them for the violation of your rights, you do not have any rights anymore. You cannot invent rights that do not exist.
