Why Would You want a 2nd Chance?
It’s nice to know that there is life after death. I say that with the idea of this self-induced illusion we call love. Love isn’t a spell that is cast on any one individual; it can be summed up as an emotional or mental state that we bestow upon any one person we feel close too. We make up in our minds that the person to whom we have such strong affection for is indeed feeling the same way towards us. There is no way to prove that the person we care for feels the exact same way we do.
I’ve found in my short time on this earth that love in most cases is conditional. There are certain conditions that must be met for love to grow and endure. Once love has been triggered it consumes our deepest emotions and takes control of all logical thought.
We fall in love, with love. Now enters truth and reality. If both people possess the same ideology of love they have overcome the biggest hurdle. No matter what problems they confront, they will be able to be victorious over these issues with love as their guide.
People tend to put more research into the car they buy than they do when picking a mate. Many people still ask for 2nd chances even under those conditions. You must remember that when a relationship ends that was not in your best interest this is to be applauded, and you should not feel dismayed. You have just dodged a bullet. Be thankful it happened before you ended up even more enthralled.
If the love is not strong enough then the breakup begins. I am not a believer in going back to ex-lovers. You are an ex for a reason. Ex meaning an "ex-ample of what isn’t good for you." Very few relationships survive rekindling the old and trying to make it new again. It takes two to make a relationship work, so why would you want a 2nd chance to hurt again. Learn from my mistakes.
I feel you can save yourself much heartache by walking away and finding someone new. In my life it has always worked for me. Love makes you put someone on a pedestal that they should not have been on in the first place.
Remember, you should never want to be with someone who doesn’t want to be with you.
Like I said earlier in this post there are people who have been able to rekindle their relationships after breaking-up. I’m not going to say that it wouldn’t happen to me. You should never say, never.
2nd Chances are extremely rare, that is why you must try your best to get it right in the first place.
Good luck and never compromise the happiness of the most important person in your life, and that person is ...you.
