I’ve always been someone who forgives, but second chances have always been hard. I have always given people that chance but it never really worked out. The person disappointed me or things were never the same again.
I gave someone a second chance too quickly and it turned out to be the biggest lesson I’ve ever learned in my life.
And here I am, years later, giving them another.
I decided there was no reason not to. The differences I’ve seen in my life over the past years are life changing. I believe that this could be the same for them.
I’ve decided to not look at it as a second chance, but to look at it as a new beginning.
For the longest time growing up, I thought the one for me would find me. I thought he would come to me and I’d never second guess if he was it or not. It wasn’t until I became a little older that I realized I had a say in who I wanted to be with. It wasn’t until I matured that I saw that it was my choice and they had to work to impress me too.
In disney movies, the guy showed up and that was it. But I realized, that’s not how it works.
The guy shows up, you fall in love, and a year or three later, you see he isn’t it.
You see that you have the power to make that choice.
