Does Forgiving Someone Mean A Second Chance?

I have a hard time with giving people secon chances. Actually I don't really give second chances.

I'm not sure if this makes me a good or bad person or what.

The other night I had a dream with an old friend in it. A friend who-in my eyes- wronged me, so I decided to not speak to them any longer. Even in my dream as they were talking to me I was passively, if listening at all. However, when I woke up I wondered why I had the dream, what the dream meant and if I need to start giving second chances to people.

It's not that I'm a mean person. In fact I think the reason I don't give second chances is because I deal with a lot of shit from people an then when they finally upset me beyond my "threshold" of acceptance I just write them off.

But is this fair?
Should I look over what caused me to stop speaking to them and start talking to them again? Or is that  foolish and allows for me to get hurt again?

Ghandi says:

I do forgive, I don't give second chances.
What's your thought?
