Do you give people second chances?

I don't. If you disappoint me, you’re not gonna get a chance to do it again. I don’t care how sorry you might be about it, which I’m naturally inclined to doubt anyway, I’m not risking it anymore. As the old proverb goes “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” I’m done feeling like an idiot for giving people second chances only for them to let me down again.

depends on what the circumstances.

Yes of course.

Usually. I'm not perfect and don't expect perfection of others. There are exceptions, but I usually give people one "do over." Sometimes more than one.

It depends how severe, and even then, people mess up sometimes. I’m sure not perfect, so I don’t expect others to be.
Probably too often, and not just second chances. Some people have gotten a 30th chance too that they didn't deserve.

I can. But it takes some time to gain my trust back. I do if the person makes an honest mistake.
No and it’s got me a load of shit here. I’m stupid but I do have boundaries

I've witnessed people in my life get multiple chances just to mess up again. I don't get disappointed anymore bc I have no expectations for them
