Explained by Darkest_Serenity...

Just how many chances should we allow ourselves to give. I use the word allow because we are often torn when it comes to making such decisions throughout our Life.

I used to be horrible about giving people more chances than they deserve.

As many as we feel we can. People extend trust, or retrust, for their own reasons. Some trust no one, ever. Others turn their cheeks, over and over.

They can only fool you if you allowed yourself to be fooled, which can happen ...but don't worry about it, move on and ignore it..

I've given people many chances, and forgiven many people for a lot of things, only to be stomped on, lied to over and over again. I have finally wised up....no more. Treat me badly, and our friendship is over.

I find myself more forgiving than I was years back
a little bit older , a little bit Wiser , that allows me to forgive some mistakes but not all and they have to be worth it ,for me to even consider forgiveness or I cut them off Dead in a heartbeat. (nme)

We do mellow with age, but when treated badly over and over again, it's time to distance oneself from the abuse.

No, you cannot always predict, if the person, who is given a second or third chance will be able to meet with your expectances, or if this person is harming you on purpose.

But in case of violence, take your precautions.

I don't like this saying. People can fool you in all different ways - you can be guarded, be aware that that person fooled you once, and it still happens. If I'm shaming anyone, is the person that purposely acted bad.
