If I commit to do no harm to the other person who hurt me, but if I deliberately harbor anger inside, thus probably hurting myself, is this true forgiveness?

It is not a completed forgiveness, but you likely are in the process of forgiving.  You need to realize that as you forgive, you may have some anger left over.  Even if you deliberately are harboring anger, and if you have decided to do no harm, then you are in an early phase of forgiving, probably the Decision Phase.
