How to Give Someone a Second Chance

  posted by: Amber Ford



second chance in a relationshipEveryone commits mistakes. At one point or another, we all mess up. This goes to show that we aren’t perfect. As they say, “To err is human.” Our mistakes make us human. This is the reason why there is a second chance. There is always a second chance but not everyone always deserves it.  There are those who don’t deserve another chance because what they have done may have left deep scars. On the other hand, if you think that the person who comes to you and asks for a second chance is deserving, then give the chance. Let the following tips on how to give someone a second chance help you with this.

  • The first thing that you need to do is to forgive the person. It’s not forgive and forget because you can never forget what happened, especially if it caused you too much pain. But you can only forgive the person after evaluating how you really feel about what happened.
  • Let the person know that you want to talk with him/ her. Initiate your reconciliation if you can.
  • Discuss why you were hurt or offended about what has happened. Let the person know the reason behind the pain you felt.
  • Lend your ears to the offender. Listen to the explanation and open your heart so that you will understand it. Your heart will tell you the better thing to do.
  • Allow the offender to make amends to what he/ she has done to you. If there’s something that you want him/ her to do, say it.

Give yourself ample time to think things over before you give the person a second chance. Don’t force yourself to forgive and accept the person again if you aren’t ready for it yet. Time will heal whatever wounds you have. Allow time to do it. This time be wiser so you won’t experience the same amount of pain.
