People are funny. Most people when they run into hard times or “issues” tend to run towards the people that are there. Rather than the people who have been there for them (or ARE there for them). Then typical people go with the people that are “there” for a while until a few months or years have gone by and they realize they still are not happy and they made some wrong choices. After finally realizing this, these people try to re-connect with the people that were actually there for them at all times (those whom they abandoned however long ago). I am currently in this situation and am having difficulty figuring out what to do. I have been on both sides of this coin, most recently I am on the “I was there for them and they want me back” side, but in the past I have (many times) been on the flip side. So I ask you, what do I do? The person I am referring to totally DESTROYED the bridge she built with me. She was my assistant and quit in the same week she had a deadline to get a bridesmaid dress for my wedding and failed to subsequently kicking herself out of my wedding. It has been only a few months now and I am still very hurt/disappointed in her. I do not know what to do. Now, she wants to come back and work for me again (not gonna happen b/c she’s been replaced; but she wants to atleast come back to the company) and she is trying to befriend me via text messages and voicemails. What do I do? In my opinion, she does not deserve a second chance. Mind you, I gave her several chances when she should have been fired while working for me as well as several chances in our friendship. But…everyone deserves a second chance, right? I feel as though so many people have given me a second chance so many times I should be the first one to offer it up. I just don’t want to get hurt/disappointed again. This person had a big role in my life for over a year and totally flipped it on me. (and yes, she DID file for unemployment. She said she got fired. AND she was granted it!) So, I need your help. Second chance or no? Comments would be greatly appreciated!
