It only takes a moment to mess up and lose someone's trust. But it can take years to earn that trust back.
Do you give second chances to people? Third chances? Is it foolish to trust someone when they've betrayed you?
For instance, if someone cheated on you, would you take them back? Or would they be considered untrustworthy to you for all time? How about a lesser offense, like someone gossiping about you behind your back?

It makes no sense to me how people could behave this way, or what kind of thought process would go into getting back together continuously with someone who treats you badly.

Threatening folks is not an act of mercy, it is an act of hatred.
