Second Chances?

I recently found myself at a crossroads this week when it comes to second chances. What does it mean and how do you decide when it should be given? There are people who hurt you in the past and may believe that they have changed. However, in order for you to truly give a second chance then changes must be made. That other person has a responsibility to show you that they have truly seen the error of their ways and that improvements have occurred. Only then can a true second chance be given to that person.

You’re most likely saying to yourself all of that is great, but how do you know if a true change has really occurred? My answer to you would be that I can’t answer that question for you. This will be something that you will receive a gut instinct about. Trust your intuition and if you get a feeling that something is not right please listen to that. Only you will know ultimately what is best for you and that includes who you allow in your life. If the vibe is off that is your intuition telling you that this person is not genuine and to remove them completely out of your life.

I understand that this is a difficult thing to do as we have been programmed to be nice to everyone we come in contact with. I’m not trying to tell you to change that however, we all need to become more cautious of the people we have around us. Not everyone who comes into your life means you well. That person could have plans for you and not of the variety that you may prefer. Also, just because someone is a nice person doesn’t mean that person can’t hurt you. A hurt person will always hurt people around them. That saying is so true and it doesn’t matter if you are nice or not. Keep the people who are meant to be in your life and get rid of the ones who shouldn’t be there.

Be wary of giving out second chances to people. There are some people who deserve it and there are others who don’t. Be protective of your heart and don’t allow a pretty face/smile to make you forget all the hurt and pain that was caused. A person should discuss what they corrected/accomplished and not just what needs to change. That person is only telling you what he/she wants you to hear and will continue to pull at your heartstrings if you let them. Your heart, soul, and energy deserve the very best. Therefore, please don’t be as generous with your time as some people just want to deplete you of all your energy. Remeber just because you forgive someone doesn’t mean they are meant to be in your life.

 

First blog post

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

Welcome to my very first blog post! My intention with creating this blog is to be able to write out my thoughts and share them with others. There maybe something that I write that may have a profound impact (I hope) or just help you with your day somehow. I would like to learn from you as well. Please don’t be afraid to leave comments on each post or send me a private message. I would very much like to hear from you.

Fortunately, life doesn’t come with a set of rules that one must follow in order to live it the best way. The thing is that is all relative to the individual as each person will view things in their own way. What about the people who are afraid to go after their dreams and continuously live their lives for other people? For those people you are the reason why I started this blog. I started this blog for you, because I’m just like you. As a matter of fact I am YOU.

Instead of living for others, let’s do what we want and stop being so apologetic about it. Life is very short and we don’t have a lot of time on this Earth. With that being said let’s live life the way we want and on our terms. Don’t worry if others don’t agree with what you want to do, because they are jealous that you have the guts to SPEAK YOUR TRUTH. Having the courage to speak up for yourself can be scary, but the alternative let’s face it is a very miserable existence.

The picture for this post speaks specifically to what I hope that everyone whom visits this page leaves with. It’s okay to tear down something and start over. Life is not about how many times you fall down, but how many times do you get back up. You are the artist of you life and you have the power to change the picture at anytime. Don’t allow others to dictate to you what the canvas of your life should look like. You are constantly creating your vision and only you can say how/when it is completed.
