How many chances do you give?

The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll start to have for you. They’ll begin to ignore the standards that you’ve set because they’ll know another chance will always be given. They’re not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won’t walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness. Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you.

  1. Disrespect is my pet peeve. Once I’m taken for granted or disrespected (because they seem to go hand in hand)
    I’m done.. No going back. You really can’t apologize for not caring about someone else’s feelings! Love yourself more..

  2. Yes, so true. I gave my ex too many chances thinking each time that he will change seeing how kind I am to him but how wrong I was. We have since broken up but I still feel weak whenever he calls me or sends me a text but I’m trying really hard to resist being made used of anymore and taken advantage of. It hurts so much and I really hope I can continue to be strong not to get back with him again.

  3. im currently experiencing this…realizing it is the hardest part…when u love someone so much, the realization if it is mind blowing…yet it will make u stronger in ur own self worth….

  4. experiencing this right now…it’s easily said than done…iv been try very hard to let go of this person but my heart can’t take just hoping for the perfect time that I’ll wake and ready to let go..

  5. So true! I was in this exact situation for close to 2 years & finally threw in the towel middle of last year. Yes.. I was that forgiving. How silly! When I read this now, I wished I had seen this much sooner. However, I am glad I have put a stop to it. This very same person I met recently seems to show more respect now. We are still friends no doubt but it won’t be the same kind of friendship ever again.

  6. It’s the same how I experiencing right now, he left alone but he cameback not to make it up but to show me that I’m only a trash on him that he can thrown again and again .. I’m fool, damn .. It’s not easy to forget him but I’m trying !!!

  7. I have recently ended a relationship that I gave my all and he could care less. I hurt ever day but I’m trying to be strong. I’ve done somethings that I’m not proud of and regret doing it. But I was hurt by him and I wanted to hurt him. That failed. All I can do is take it one day at a time.

  8. Why does it hurt so much? I said to my self, he has nothing really to offer, lives with mommy still barley works… So. Why the hell am I trippin?Tell your self I know I can do better, I deserve better, I will be better, I no longer feel guilty for leaving him when I was there 2 years outta my life while he was locked up?? All I can say is GOOD LUCK, GROWING UP! I’m good!!

  9. In this lifetime we were too busy to watch schedules and to turn comas into ends.What if there is not enough time for that.What if we have to live here and now without suspitions something might come on the way to disapoint us.We have all the right to choose to provide understanding to anyone,anywhere cause we would be right to pray,apologize and desereve the amnisty of despair.
