Where do you stand on second chances?
For me, I’m not so sure.
Because on one hand, I always think about how you don’t ever get more than a first impression. You only get one shot to show someone who you are and if you absolutely blow it, then that person is your friend but they remember how weird you were the first time they met you.
But on the other hand, I think life is full of second chances. Of times when you could have done better but didn’t, and you get the callback anyway. You get an opportunity, sometimes when you deserve it and sometimes not.
But actually, I don’t really want there to be second chances, in a way. And it’s not because I think I’m so confident that I can’t fail.
It’s just that…I want my efforts to count the first time. I want to make sure that I’m so on my game that I don’t have the option of trying again. Because in life, there are no dress rehearsals.
Everything means something more, something deeper. Essentially, you wouldn’t care as much if you thought you were getting a second chance.
So, when it comes to chances, I don’t see double. I have 20/20 vision.
