    But I Think I've Worn All Mine Out..

    I've had so many second chances in life and I keep blowing them. I keep getting better and reverting back to the same old ****** up me. The person I HATE so much and yet I can't seem to get away from it!

    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...

    Second Chance Wont Hurt? I Love Him!

    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...

    There is no point in punishing someone

    for a mistake and after it you don't give him a chance to show that he or she learned. We all did something wrong and had to pay the price for it. And that is fine. But after that it should be over and no one has the right to bother osmeone for the past he paid for

    Everybody DOES deserve a second chance.

    The problem is, many people extend that second chance into ten, and wonder why they get hurt. People will often prove early on in a relationship if they are good or bad, which is why we always need that second chance.

    Don't we all want to think this?! Who wants to think they are just boring? Even if it is in our own mind everybody should think they are interesting.
