    A girl who I known for some time now,

    My first bf was exactly what I could ever ask

    for. I haven't found anyone that has come even close to him. He was perfect with his swag, he was well known, beautiful, sophisticated, strong, and taught me not to dwell on the past but live in the present. All I want is a second chance at a love that perfect again. That's all...

    For the first time since he cheated a few

    months ago, I saw my ex-boyfriend and the girl he cheated with (an ex-friend) in the dining hall today. We were all at the same table because they are both in my friend group. I had been dreading this moment; the moment when I would have to choose to either continue avoiding and...

    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...

    People will always make mistakes.

    It's a more true show of character, I think, to forgive and move on rather than not and lose the opportunity to learn, from the other person and from yourself. No one is perfect, we all screw up at some time or another.

    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.

    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.

    If he asked me for a second chance,

    i would give it to him in a heartbeat. He released me from my self imposed imprisonment - he healed me. And then he broke my heart a few times... But what we share is too beautiful, too rare to not give it a fair chance to flourish.

    I believe if you give someone a second chance

    it will give them a chance to prove that they are trustful, also i believe second chances helps people understand what they did and how to change it but if they blow that one off then thats their own fault
