The story of A Second Chance has beautifully grown up with its fans to tackle millennial issues, struggles and fears. Here are 8 life lessons from A Second Chance that millennials will surely be able to relate to.

When betrayed by someone you love and you’ve lost all trust in that person, trust your love for that person first.

To sustain friendships amid inevitable change, constantly choose to stay in each other’s lives even when it gets tough to do so.
What-ifs will always flutter around. It requires immense bravery to ignore that and to accept what-is.
Letting someone love you means putting your guard down to show all your sides, even the ones that may be ugly and disappointing.
There will come a time when you’ll see the worst version of your partner. It will be hard to see the good, and you’ll want to give up. To stay together, you’ll have to make the hard choices and constantly stick to it with no blame.
