    Second Chance Wont Hurt? I Love Him!

    I love the rainbow that shows up after a rain. I love that spark I get after the kiss. I love the night sky and count how many stars are up there. I love walking in the beach and having beautiful picnic in the sunset with that special someone after a honey moon. I love that...

    I believe there will be a lot of things happened

    before the real ends. A rain before a rainbow. A black before a white. A tears before a smile. A struggle before a succeed. A mistake before a lesson. A goodbye before a hello. I don't think we should judge people based on what they did. People lies. People have secrets...

    I Mean ....

    I mean, we all make mistakes, don't we? Nobody's perfect, right? Everyone's had a moment where they've regretted doing something. I think all of us deserve to be forgiven in our time of weakness.

    New Years Eve 2008

    My friends gave me a second chance once. But I'm not sure I deserved it. It was New Years Eve 2008 and I had only just turned 18. I was making the most of it and spent almost the whole of the previous week drinking alone in my room. Unfortunately, I suffer from depression and...

    2nd Chance

    I agree with this.  It all depends what it is too.  Some deserve a second chance while others don't.

    We All Make Mistakes

    I have been given plenty of chances to redeem myself in this life and have given others the chance to as well ; even when I felt it would end the same way . It's about forgiving and letting go . When we fail at these opportunities , move on , gracefully , no spite or bitterness...

    Depends on who they are,

    and what they did wrong. I've been known to give too many chances. Sometimes it's better to just "so long, sucker" the first time, then it is to keep giving them chances. Sometimes, people change and understand the mistake(s) they made, and they were worthy of that second chance...
