Because forgiveness implies action. Once forgiven one tends to look for ways to move on and take action towards future. Self pity on the other hand is a safe zone. There is no need for action all misfortunes can be assigned to a blame and person can easily obliviate the need to do something about the situation. In short it's comfortable.
Forgiveness is difficult, self-pity is east. Most people will choose the easy way over the difficult one
