51 Quotes about Second Chances

Sometimes, life doesn’t always favor you. You might meet people who make your life worth living, but something goes down, and you end up drifting apart. Your life loses its meaning! The very thing that made your life beautiful and happier has now gone!

What will you do?
How will you manage?

Life isn’t always a bed of roses, but maybe we can make it a bit more comfortable by giving chances. Yes, a second chance. Be it a person or a thing; second chances can sometimes be the best decision of your life. Everyone does not know how to respond to a certain situation the way you want them to. Maybe they do love you a lot but aren’t able to express it. Maybe they don’t know how to handle love and affection because they were deprived of it.

When life gives you a second chance at something or someone, you don’t let it go! A person rarely gets a reset option. It’s a golden opportunity. Sometimes, you may not even realize it, but you will have the reset button in your hand, and when you do, do not let it go in vain.

If you are the one who has been given a second chance, don’t rush. Take things slowly. Help build the bond again. It isn’t easy to forgive and forget, but maybe it’s worth a shot!

Maybe a second chance will write the fairytale you wanted in the first place!
