who's turn is it to roll the dice?

how many new chances does a person deserve? or in other words, how many fuck-ups can a person afford to do before they have to pay for it?

does everyone deserve the same amount of "get out of jail free" cards or do some people get more than others? if so, why and who? if a friend gets x cards, does the number of cards increase or decrease when the relationship turns into something more intimate?

when does forgiving turn into stupidity?

I dunno... for some reason I forgive friends more easily than SO's - SO's should bloody well know better.
Let-downs are always tricky, and people get out of jail free pretty easily depending on the background story. With a good story it's easier to forgive. But there has to be a line somewhere.

Fucked if I know where, though.

I've set some pretty straightforward guidelines and follow them. Baz Luhrmann's words are my backbone:

"Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours."

Have to say - it has worked so far and don't regret a thing I've done because of that.
