Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
I’m assuming this week’s blog hop question refers to personal relationships. So, here we go.
When someone tells you who they are, believe them the first time.
We miss you Lady Maya!
The idea of second chances can fill people with a sense of hope. All doesn’t have to be a loss. As a romance author, I’m a huge fan of books with a second chance at love plot. Heck, a lot of my stories feature one or both protagonists stepping back up to the plate to give love another try.
And…cue in the crappy metaphor.
The thing is, those are made up people with characteristics that I design in them to ensure the required romance HEA (Happily-Ever-After). With real people, it’s much more of a gamble to trust again. Hence, Maya’s famous quote.
People rarely change and will adjust how they treat you even more infrequently. So, whenever someone screws up, there are a few things to consider before allowing them a second chance.
