Second chances can be tricky.
It't not about giving or not giving them, it's about WHEN to give and not give them. I mean, yes, you should forgive everyone. That way you will stay from being bitter and cruel, but second chances are not the same as forgiveness.
You can forgive someone, and not trust someone again, but you cant not forgive someone and put your trust in them.
It doesnt work like that...most of the time.
But that's not what this post is about, this post is about giving yourself a second chance, and trusting yourself.
If you're not gonna trust yourself, you're not gonna be able to control yourself, and stop yourself from doing something stupid. Forgiving yourself for what you have done in the past is just as important, if you dont forgive yourself you're just going to fester and boil in your anger or disappointment with ourselves.
I know it's not too big of a deal when a person jokingly says they hate themselves, or if they dont like a certain thing about themselves, and yea it's not most of the time. But sometimes, and this is a wisdom that i hope to find, we have to see whats a joke and whats a facade. It's not a bad thing to want to improve yourself, but sometimes we dont want to improve. We just wanna keep on hating ourself, take the easy way.
Well i'm rambling haha
But still, dont hate yourself. The perfect balance is knowing you need to improve, while loving yourself just enough.
It's very hard.
Stay beautiful, love, Lizzie.
this doesnt really have anything to do with anything but i liked the quote don't you?
