The Thrill Is Gone



This week on #TheFriendZone, we discuss second chances. If someone messed up, badly, how open are you to letting them back in? And do you find yourself being more or less lenient when it comes to romantic situations than friendships? We share stories on times we’ve given and needed grace from those we love.
