when talking about second chance we can look it from many perspectives. in what category of mistake that the person has done which qualify him/her to get d second chance? is it in:
academic? sports? freedom of speech? politics? friendship? love?
when it comes to academic, i believe that there is a need of a second chance. but not only second, "ber-chance-chance" pn perlu!!!! hehheheh. this is because, throughout the process of learning strong motivation of standing up again when u fall down is a MUST!!! once u fail it doesnt mean that u'll fail forever. some of us might be succeeded straight away in his/her first try. some may not. some may be succeeded after the second try. yet, some may take more than that. this is because Allah test His people differently but with the equal intention which is to make us learn, realize n become better and better. in education, mistake is tolerable. But then dont take it for granted by having a sluggish idea thinking that... "Hey!!mistake is accepted in education. So that means eventho we answer it wrong in exm they'll still tolerate". huhuhuhuhu. whoever has that thinking is definitely s-i-l-l-y. Therefore, if u fail in ur stdies, dont feel down. this is life. there is d up n down of it. mistake is part of human life. we learn from it, so stand up n try again!!!
in friendship.... hurmm (*+*)???
will u forgive ur friend for his/her mistake? throughout my whole life, that's wht i do. giving chance to people. to my friends n family as well as to the people tht i've never known. i'm the type of easy to forget someone's mistake n not to place it in heart. i realize this when i was in form 3. it was when one of my friends got jelous at me because of sth n she wrote my name on d science lab's table saying sth bad of me. i was so angry to find it out but after few days, i could be good again with her. that time my friends asked me... "hey, dont u remeber wht she's done?". n seriously that time i didnt remember anythng about that n i replied... "a'aaaa la lupa!!!biarla". in that moment my friends told me that i'm too lenient n alwys forget wht people have done to me. yet sometimes, when i think it back...maybe that's me. that's who i am n that's how i live. d reasons which lead to that kind of personality are maybe:
1. saya agak2 nyanyuk skit ekceli so sng lupa.
2. saya paling x suka bergaduh.
3. saya malas nk pikir.
4. saya taknak susah2.
therefore, i always end up by giving chance to people. not only second chance, but third, fourth n so on =p
but then do u think that by giving second chance to people u'r teaching him/her to be better? sometimes yes n sometimes no. by giving people chances, we are actually giving them another wider space for them to reflect upon themselves n to improve. they may do that n they may not. sometimes when people are given too many chances, they'll have the mind... "alaaaa. nk riso ape. kalo wat slh lg pn still akn dimaafkan. lepakla". that's wht happened to me in one of my life stages. people may take u for granted if u'r too lenient.
so i rest my case by having a not so beautiful mind saying that... second chance is there, we need it and others need it as well. but chance of d other ordinal numbers...such as sixth, tenth, thirteenth, thirtieh n etc.... mb they're not necessary in some situations.
live life to d fullest. make it to the most u can as long as u still have ur chance =)
