    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
