My inquiry question is: “How much is too much to forgive?”
This question is of interest to me for I had gone through relationship problems and people have different points of view as to what is much too hard to forgive. Forgiveness was a hard thing for me to do as I always wanted strong and happy relationships with my family and friends.
I want my first round of research to be about what forgiveness is and how other people have broken down those walls of whatever they were going through to make new walls. I plan on finding stories of people who have forgiven other people, under hard circumstances. I want to introduce people to different opinions on forgiveness.
My second round of research will be about stories of forgiveness around the world. The religious views of redemption and how it affects religious believers. I plan on selecting a variety of stories from very different countries with very different opinions. I also would like to interview people that I know personally and help them share their own opinions of forgiveness and how far they would be able to forgive.
My final round of research will be about the benefits of forgiveness and how it can lead to consequences. Why many people choose not to forgive in certain situations and how they deal with the past. I plan on using my stories from my second round of research as references.
My question will help other people by teaching the different opinions of forgiveness and how to deal with situations with another person. I hope it helps them realize that forgiveness is an important aspect of relationships and learning about the subject is also important.
