I am a believer that most people deserve second chances. There are times when something goes wrong in a relationship, that could have been from misunderstanding, or lack of knowledge that leaves both parties with different perspectives.
If a second chance cannot be given, then I am the kind of person who at least tries to understand your position. I don’t have to agree with it, but I will be open enough to try to understand it.
There are not many times in our lives when we get a second chance at something–be it relationships or opportunities. What I have noticed with some people, is that when an olive branch is extended, they do not take it. Years later they complain that they were forgotten by that person, or that person didn’t care.
The real honest truth is, when a second opportunity is given, you have to make that choice to grab it. If it’s offered, and you want it, you have to be ready to take it. If not, it’s going to be lost. There will not be anyone to blame but yourself.
Second chances don’t always come at the right time, or when it’s convenient for us, but when they do come, they are precious. They are that moment that you have been waiting for to settle something, or create peace in your home.
A lot of times, you don’t have to wait for it to come to you, you can create those chances yourself as well. Maybe the other person is not sure how it’s going to be accepted, so they never extend themselves, or maybe you were the person who was in the wrong who needs to correct things.
Either way, there is no need to carry around past hurt, or guilt. No need to walk around saying that there were things that you should have done, could have done.
It’s not only enough to wish for changes, but sometimes we must to put ourselves out there in order to see those changes we’re looking for.
