How is it possible to forgive someone that destroyed you?

Anonymous
When I was 8, I rarely survived getting struck by a drunk driver. The guy behind the wheel was a stupid 16 year-old coming from a party.

Everything is not ok. I can't ever be a mother. I'll never have a childbirth experience because of him. Meanwhile my parents have forgiven him (I don't know how they can forgive him to be honest), didn't want him to be locked up too harshly and continue preaching about the importance of forgiviving for your own peace. Because of them he got sentenced as a juvenile, only 2 years and community service hours.

I can't ever give birth to a child. He took away my natural ability to form a family in the future. How is that being at peace? He destroyed me. How is it possible to forgive such person?
