Have you ever made a mistake? Did you ever hurt another person? Well, I have made many mistakes and even though I never meant to hurt anyone, I have. But, I have also been given 2nd, 3rd, 11th, and 23rd chances to do things right.
I am not asking anyone to become someone’s doormat or whipping post. That would be called abuse. But, if someone did not do something correctly and it affected you in a negative way, what do you have to loose by giving them another chance? Nothing. It all goes back to the forgiveness thing I wrote earlier. There is a whole lot of relief and reward in giving folks another chance. I have yet to meet a perfect person on the planet.
Now if someone continues to do the same negative thing, you have the right to say, sorry no more.
Another chance gives people the opportunity to learn something, to have a clean slate, to make things better than they were before. Chances can actually help people start over. If it weren’t for the many chances I have been given…I would not be writing this now.
Take some time to see who you can given another chance to. The rewards can be awesome.
Love & Peace
