    Everyone makes mistakes.

    I give second chances when that person learns from their mistakes.

    I Do....

    I believe in second chances, even third, or fourth, or how many times as it takes to get things the right way. I believe that people deserve as many chances as to get some things the right way. I will admit that I made some mistakes, and was given chances to get things the...

    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 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...

    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.

    Most of the Time

    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...

    He Gave Himself A Second Chance By Admitting He Was Wrong.

    I'm not the type of person to be okay with EVERYTHING. some people can just be angry at someone for a while, take some time off, and be okay with it. Not me. There are certain things that I can handle in this way, but some things I feel too strongly about to overcome and forget...

    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
