How do you get that second chance of happiness?

Happiness is not made from others to you.

You need to be happy on your own and that happiness comes from within.

The chance of being happy again is not from your friend, your husband, or your past life experiences.

It is something you get from your own being.

Your first chance of happiness can come from a good experience, from meeting someone special or from small events.

That moment is temporary but the happiness from within is pure and is everlasting.

Shocking ideas or plans can give you happiness.

You have no idea of how happiness can surprise you in such ways.

A second chance of happiness in my adopted country has shown the true meaning of life itself.

I felt upset, terrible, annoyed, ruined, unhappy, devastated, alone, sad, angry, miserable and not I until, I realized I got to move on to feel good again.

I needed to think positive and to feel myself.

Something I didn’t know will ever happen at one stage of my life events.

After learning there is a possibility to be happy again, I tried to stop thinking of my past life.

I knew then that living in my past won’t allow me to go forward.

I have nothing in common with the local people, but that don’t make it impossible to make simple conversation.

Speaking to people has no age boundary or culture ban.

It is the simple understanding of the basic conversation that makes social experience enjoyable.

I missed everything I had known and that didn’t make my life any easier in my adopted country.

The Croatian lifestyle took me by surprise!

Living a different lifestyle can bring you happiness and unhappiness.

It depends on how you choose to live your life.

Sometimes what you have and don’t have can make you that different person.

The moment you lose yourself in a new life problem arises.

As much as you would like to live as you did in the past the change is inevitable!

I was affected in trying to live my life as I did in the past, wrong idea!

The key to happiness just be you!

You can be you and be happy with your true self.

Our journeys allow us to find that happiness from within to grow into different people.

To find happiness again is rare.

Positive energy gives you that experience.

Nothing good lasts forever!

Everything good or bad is temporary.

Day and night are changes and people do as well.

You may not always be happy but this happens in the moment.

What is your experience of having a second chance of happiness?

You feel betrayed, hurt, and disappointed, with your relationship.

Would you forgive them and go ahead with a second chance of happiness?

How difficult can that be for you?

You are only human and making mistakes is how you learn from life.

Second chances of happiness are not always easily to control, or to have in your life again.

The value of your relationship is important to you but somehow you see it different.

People are taught different in their cultures and that is what makes certain issues complicated.

Forgiveness is easy when you are taught different.

When you forgive you heal from the inside out and feel yourself again.

The grudge you keep ruins you and makes you unhappy.

I let go of my past and don’t blame anyone for the choices I made.

The worst is when you blame the other person for your wrong choices made.

Be responsible for your actions.

Honesty shows a valuable point.

Your loving trait shows warmth.

The obedient individual brings out your character.

Share values with loved ones.

Be stable.

Safety is important.

Good qualities enable your daily routine with a smile.

Conflict shows negative traits.

Cultures show your true personalities.

The positive person shows happiness easily when taught from a young age.

People are happier when they value the trait of forgiving others.

Happiness and forgiveness go hand in hand.

You get a second chance of happiness if you forgive easily.

Your anger won’t get you happiness.

The enemy or you’re not so favorite person won’t bring you happiness.

Second chances give you happiness and laughter.

Did you feel happier when you forgave someone?

Emotionally you benefit from this experience.

You stay focused on your goals and this allows you to move on positively.

Off-course, you learn from your mistakes to get happiness back in your life.

Happiness comes into your life in different way not like you once had it.

People change and people grow so happiness comes in their lives but not in a unique way.

Anything and anyone can bring you unhappiness, it is up to you to get on with your life again and to bring back your happiness.

Don’t depend on others for your happiness.

You can work it out for you.

Learn to appreciate what you have, and focus on what you have not on what you don’t have.

You experience the worst and pick up the pieces and move on to better places.

A second chance is given to you each day. You may feel unhappy when you wake up each morning but that is your second chance.

The new day begins with another start for you to try and succeed.

You have a second chance to succeed and and see your dreams come true.

Sometimes a second chance can ruin you.

Look at your failures as another experience rather than a negative part of your life.

Second chances are for you to live happy, to be successful, to be in love or to reunite with loved ones.

A second chance and forgiving others work well together.

What do second chances mean to you?

Is a second chance about clearing your mistakes?

You can’t clear your bad experiences or your past experiences.

You need that second chance to grow and learn of your actions.

Maybe you want to change something in you, to improve on your career, or a relationship.

In yourself the second chance is giving you a rare opportunity to begin another life.

Some people don’t deserve that second chance.

The second chance you get allows you to set boundaries, to get on with new relationships, to change the way you think about your skills in communication, and to be involved in what went wrong and to set learning goals.

It holds on what caused your pain.

What occurred in your life to allow for you to get that second chance?

I had faced up to many challenges and in the process had lost a part of my happiness.

The heartache I felt made me feel unhappy for a long time. I had to get to a point in my life to see for myself what makes me happy.

Only I could do that for me.

I noticed the changes didn’t make me happy. In order to accept the new lifestyle, I had live my life before experiencing another culture.

To kiss and make up is easy and feels great when you are a child. When you are older you realize much more about your emotions.

You feel happier when you are positive and confident about your ideas.

You owe yourself a second chance.

Every decision made is your responsibility.

What you lost you will not regain your life is made for you and no one else.

Life is precious treat is a gift without a bow.

Self-healing is the key to a second chance.

Sometimes you don’t realize you have a second chance.

The second chance is a beginning for you and it shows you a difference from within.

Every moment you get is a second chance, you need to see it immediately.

      You've provided a powerful and peaceful message her my friend. Knowing we have second chances for happiness is a tool for joy. Living in the past accomplishes nothing. It keeps us from moving on...moving forward.

      When we learn this valuable lesson then we improve the quality of our own life. Thank you for creating this valuable article.

      It has been a long time since you wrote a hub, Devika. Good to read a new one from you..great advice here too. We all need second chances at some stage, and you are right that anger cannot bring happiness. We need to forgive and forget and move on, and hopefully adapt to new situations.
