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

People have different ways of coping with certain things. The mind is a wonderful device; everyone's brains is different and it processes the same issues and problems differently depending on the individual.
