    I Got My Second

    When I was just a naive little thing, I knew it all. I was after going into high school, I knew everything...at least about boys. So when I was asked out by one of THE seniors I just had to go. Forget that my parents said no. I knew better. So out I went. Result ended up very...

    My Opinion....

    I think everyone on EP deserves, a second, thrid, even fourth chance. Hell in my opinion, I think everyone deserves as many chances it takes to get it right. As long as you are sincere about wanting to change for the better. But hey, that is just my opinion, coming from someone...

    I Believe In Second Chances ....

    Do you believe in second chances? Do you believe that everybody deserves a second chance? A partner who cheated on you, a friend who betrayed you or your family who abandoned you? Do you think you can forget their mistakes and learn to trust them again? This may be one of the...

    I Think I'll Give It A Try

    If you have read my previous stories about my ex boyfriend and how we broke up then you probably know how much I hate him. And if you've been following then you also know that it's already been almost 4 months since we broke up. A lot has happened - to me and to him. He continued...

    I Believe In Second Chances

    I think everyone deserves a second chance. For one thing, people make mistakes. It is a normal part of life. Whenever my friends back stabs me or makes fun of me, I need time to forgive them. It may be as simple as days or as complicated as years.A second chance is temporary. For...

    We All Need One At One Point, Yes?

    People make mistakes; I make mistakes, and hopefully we are allowed second chances.  I have to say though that some people even get a second chance at life.  They have near-death experiences that wake them up to their actions and lifestyle and helps turn them around...

    I Believe In Second Chances

    Its weird how some people refuse to believe that people are worth second chances. If you did something dumb when you were younger, surely it's worth forgiving because you mature with age.  You were young then, new to the world, pushing the boundaries of right and wrong. You...

    If you kill I'm not so sure... but there are always adjustments made to the rules so you never know. For instance if a man killed the person that abused his child then I say go for it. I'm not against the death penalty and would prefer they go fast before they enjoy too much free...

    To Correct Ourselves

    I've always believed everyone deserves a second chance,  sometimes we make stupid decisions and so need to correct that. I've made stupid choices, I got a second chance usually at getting it right.

    I believe in giving second chances,

    but I don't know if I can give him one. He has a girlfriend yet says he regrets ending things with me and doesn't know why he did. But still, he has a girlfriend. And the one person I want a second chance from, isn't going to give me one. Oh the irony.
