“All discarded lovers should be given a second chance, but with somebody else.”
I used to be a true believer of second chances. We are all human and we all make mistakes. But what I also used to believe is that people learn from their mistakes. People change. But this time I was wrong.
I thought that by losing me once, you would realise that you needed to sort your life out. You would realise how much it hurt the first time, how much you hurt me and not do it again.
So I let you back into my life, even though I had recovered and healed. I gave you another shot. But how wrong I was…
The truth is people don’t change unless they truly want too. And they realise that the problem lies within themselves.
The hardest part is, it is not your fault. It’s mine. I only have myself to blame. I was warned, but I didn’t listen to the warning signs. I allowed myself to get sucked in again, by broken promises and lies. You told me what I wanted to hear and I believed you.
But you have taught me a lesson, when it comes to relationships, I will never be so quick to hand out second chances.
I gave you a gift, the opportunity to make things right, but how could I even think you would make things right if you didn’t realise you had done wrong.
Therefore, I would like to apologise to myself for allowing someone to weaken me, to the point I didn’t feel worthy. I would like to thank my friends for being there when you weren’t.
