30. Do you believe in second chances?
Yes, I believe in benefit of the doubt, especially if it is someone you love.  However, it takes an awful amount of work and it rather depends on the person who needs the second chance and the person of whom they are asking that chance from. If you are person a) then try not to mess person b) around again; however, if you are person b) stop harping on about how person a) let you down in the first place.  It is an agreement that both have to honour.  It might be the case of 'fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me', but I think it's worth it.  Don't go there the third time.

Second chances don't just refer to persons... LIFE has so many chances... if you muck a lump of your life up (as I do pretty frequently) you can always say... Stupid... and end it all and start again. Sometimes it does take a bit of mind-strength and perserverance NOT to go back to 'safety' which in fact actually isn't.

And I always cheat at 'who are you' type quizzes...not just second chances I do half a dozen! teehee.

Edited cos the pancakes have burnt and set the fire alarm off!!! gaaah hoh hoh hoh!

I absolutely agree - I hit the reset button on education aged 44, so as far as I am concerned, this is the second chance for me. I am all for challenging the 'comfort zone' too.

No second chances re pancakes that are already burnt though - that would be practically Zen.

It's like The Doctor. I will always give someone a second chance, but only once.

Once can be misguided, twice terrible misjuded and then the drawbridge goes up.

Or as we like to say, 'Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.'
