If someone has wronged you and then shows sincere regret and asks for forgiveness, what should you do?
Go out of your way to do positive things for him that will express your love and concern for him. In this way, you are encouraging him for realizing his mistake and doing the right thing to correct it.
(see Rabbi Chaim Zaitchyk - Maayanai Hachaim, vol.3, p.262; Rabbi Pliskin's "Consulting the Wise")
