    Yes, but it’s really what you do with it that counts. For whatever the reason you needed a second chance to begin with, it’s what you learn from it and what you get out of it. Without second chances, I think a lot of us would be in different places right now…

    I guess so . . . I haven’t seen much positive evidence but the concept seems to make sense . . . .

    For me, it depends on the situation. There are just a few things for me that are unforgivable…. 1) if my huz cheated on me… or 2) someone said something bad about or did something TO one of my kids. Either would be unforgivable and there’d be NO second chances.

    Second and third and fourth and…. (for me) 🙂

    EVERYONE deserves and needs a second chance. However, just because we decide to give someone a second chance that does not mean that we will observe what WE THINK the reciepiant SHOULD HAVE accomplished with that second chance.

    Let’s face it there was only One perfect human being that ever walked the face of this earth. The rest of us fail miserably… alot. Without second chances (aka forgiveness) where would each of us be?

    I do believe that people deserve a second chance.

    That said, there are those who have received, from me, third, fourth, fifth, and beyond.

    And there are others who have not even received the second chance.

    It all depends upon the situation, the infraction, and most importantly, my relationship with the person.

    I believe in second chances, but I also believe that there are certain acts (cheating) that are harder (maybe even impossible) to forgive.

    Its hard to forgive, but I try to be reasonable. I think about what type of forgiveness I might have to ask for and figure I should give it if I might need to ask for it. With that said, I am not a glutton for punishment. When it comes to my father, I have forgiven, but I don’t go out of my way to be in his life. I leave that door open for him to come through though..without judgment.

    I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I am not sure I would keep giving that…or forgive repeatedly though. I am human, after all. I have a need to protect my family

    I believe in second chances. It’s the third and fourth ones that start to wear on me!

  9. Joy says:

    I agree with everyone else so far pretty much. Everyone deserves a second chance and it also really depends on what they’ve done and what they do with that second chance as to if they get a 3rd, 4th or 5th.

  10. nikki says:

    YES! Everyone screws up from time to time. We are human. I think it says a lot about the relationship if a 2nd chance were given. Sue said it perfectly….who knows where we’d be without them!

  11. SKL says:

    Whether people get a second chance or not (or 3rd or 99th chance), I still think it’s important that they have real consequences if they screwed up their first chance. Forgiveness is one thing, lack of accountability is another.

    I believe in 2nd chances.Depending on who and what it is.Some people and situations in my life,there have been no more chances.Its rare but necessary sometimes to just walk away and not look back.But with my children,they get all the chances they need,cause a mommas love never fails. 🙂
