It's not that we need to seek forgiveness for being human, it's that we don't automatically deserve to go to heaven. What, for instance, has an infant done to deserve heaven? Not much. But God is willing to give us the grace necessary.

Original sin means that, to quote Chesterton, "men were naturally backsliders; that human virtue tended of its own nature to rust or to rot." And this is obviously true, just look around you. To be good, you have to make an effort, otherwise any good person will eventually fall into sin.
