    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.

    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...
