“I believe in second chances” some say.
I’ve always believed this, too. I’ve given people second chances. Even third and fourth chances.
The types of people who need to be given second chances tend to fall into the same pattern they did before. They take advantage of the trust given again.
Perhaps some would make great use of a second chance and they would make amends for what they did wrong, but if they valued you and your time they wouldn’t have blown that first chance to begin with. No one takes chances with the things they view as precious.
Instead of focusing so much on why people should give you second chances, focus on respecting people on the first chance they’ve given you.
