a 2nd chance

A second chance is all we make up for mistakes, to prove ourselves to something or someone or even to get us to where we’re destined to be. Life isn’t like an exam where if you fail once, you have to stick with and the results you get.
I’ve met some people in my life that don’t believe in second chances. To them it’s about what’s done is done and things will never change. You know on the outside they’re all hardcore but really on the inside they must be hurting. How can you open yourself to love if you don’t believe in second chances? How can you grow as a person if you don’t believe in second chances? So they fall down once and then that’s it? What a sad sad existence. Living in fear of what could be and sacrificing great things for the sake of your pride and reputation will never bring you true happiness.
It’s these people especially who need second chances and it would only be cruel to not allow them that. Nobody on this rotating earth is perfect. I don’t care how good-looking you are, how much money you make or what an amazing person you are. You’re still not perfect. None of us are in the position to judge each other – there’s a Higher Power that does that already.
If I never gave myself and others a second chance, I would not be the person I am today. I would not have had the amazing people that are in my life today. Because by giving others second chances you allow yourself to receive them.


  1. This is so true. I believe that things happen for a reason. If it did not work out the first time round, you will be given a better opportunity the second time round. We all just need to have faith.

  2. You are one of the most honest and loyal people I know. You also have a very forgiving heart. Nicely written.
