Pillow Talk: Sometimes goodbye is a second chance


At this stage in life we’ve all had bad experiences with people we care about that has led to us severing ties and going separate ways.

People choose to cut ties with friendships and relationships all the time, and when you think back on it it’s mostly over something petty such as an argument, disagreement, hearsay or an assumption.

Some people in this world are stern, and won’t entertain the thought of giving anyone a second chance to make a first impression.

The real dilemma when it comes to cut- ting someone off, is determining whether or not that person deserves another chance.

But first you may want to weigh out the positives and negatives of the reconciliation. Does bringing this person back into your life benefit you at all, or will your decision come back to haunt you.

There are some things that are impossible for people to overlook.

For example, getting caught cheating is hard for people to forgive and allow someone a second chance at losing trust along with breaking their heart.

On the flipside, if you distance yourself from someone because of a rumor you’ve heard, you might be willing to give them a second chance once you hear their side.

The people we have in our lives are there for a good reason. Not everyone is going to make the cut, so go with your gut.

If you’re unsure about the possibility of someone changing their ways, don’t put your- self through the drama of dealing with them.

Life’s too short to keep wishy-washy people around you.

Friendships seem to be more repairable than relationships. A friendship that has been developed over years can mean more to someone than a brief relationship gone askew.

The percentage of relationships on their second chance can’t have a high success rate, due to just about every couple that I know of that’s tried to rekindle the flame failed miserably.

The fact of the matter is, not everyone de- serves a second chance to be in your life after screwing up multiple times.

Anyone that’s currently in your life needs to appreciate the position they’re in and respect you.

If not, their parking space in your life should be immediately revoked and never reissued.
