I do not believe that anyone who’s ever loved you can drift so far away from you that you could not reach out and pull them back if you honestly tried. At some point, you must accept at least partial responsibility for what has transpired by admitting to yourself that you do not simply lose people but rather on some level you let them go.
Probably it was just too difficult or too painful to try or maybe the relationship seemed too short-lived or too broken to salvage. No matter the reasons it fell apart, people can still fall back into each other’s arms for a second try at love if the feelings are still there.
It is obviously not about a matter of wishing for another chance. You are given so many chances to win back the people you’ve loved and lost if only you’d see those opportunities for what they really are.
It’s not even a matter of crossing paths with them by pure chance or accidentally dialing their number because it’s still in your phone; every single day you wake up is another chance to track down somebody you still have feelings for and convince them to give it another shot.
The funny thing about chances are, you have to take them and the sad part is that most people are too scared, too stubborn, too stupid or too hurt from the first time to take the chances they are given again.
So, do I personally believe that we are given a second chance at loving the same person twice? Yes. I believe we are given many. And I also believe that we usually screw them up.
