When you commit to forgiving others, does it also include a commitment to be gentle with oneself at the same time?

Yes, as you forgive others, you offer to yourself what you offer to them.  Are you offering patience to others?  Then be patient with yourself.  Are you trying to be compassionate toward others, then be compassionate toward yourself as a wounded person in need of some time and nurturance to heal emotionally.
