We can end up tormented

Exodus 1:12                ESV
‘But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad.’

There is a story that Jesus told about a man who owed a large amount of money to the King. One day the King called him in a demanded that He pay back the money he owed. He begged the King for forgiveness because he could not repay the debt.
The King extended mercy and granted his request and released him of the amount he owed. On his way out this man saw another man who owed him some money and demanded that the man pay.
The man plead for mercy, but he refused and had the man throw in jail. When the king heard what had happened he was angry and had the man handed over to the tormentors until his original debt was paid.

Matthew 18:23-35

The crucial verse is verse 34: ‘Then the angry king sent the man to the torture chamber until he had paid every last penny due.’

Unforgiveness lands us in the torture chamber. The older Bible versions use the word tormentors. Unforgiveness leaves us tormented!
