    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...

    New Me" crap to change. Everyday is a chance right in front of your face.

    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...

    Sometimes the best way is to start over ,

    letting go of all fears , disappointments... Finding along the way a chance to be a better person... Or helping someone discover the hidden gem in them... The life's too short to hold on to the bitter feelings... You can fly only if you are ready to spread your wings or else...

    When I met the father of my daughter,

    I was in a state of emotional heartbreak. Our story is a bit complicated, but back then I just wasn't ready to love him. I said I loved him. He loved me. But I was still heartbroken and in recovery. We weren't together for some time. My heart has healed and it's crazy because...

    Last year was one of the worst years I've ever

    had. I started to give up on life as well as my life goals. I started to give up on myself. I kept telling myself I can't do this; this isn't for me. I honestly just hated everything about myself & I couldn't find one good thing about myself. In my eyes, I failed. Not only did I...

    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.

    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 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
