okay, so im confused :-/

What is with the number 3?  So, they say 3 strikes and you're out, but they say 3rd time's a charm, which is it?

I've been trying to figure this out and can't so I'm enlisting the assistance of my readers to aid in my understanding.  

Thanks!

Love to live; live to love!

Okay, and I'll throw in that "3" represents the trinity. How's that!

By the way, it’s my favorite number. :D

@ believer - okay, i can dig that, but that's 3 in the affirmative; so how come it gets used in the negative equally as often? 13 is my favorite #.

I'm leaving the 3rd comment, so that makes me special. 3 is also my favorite number. I don't have anything informative to add, but I'll just leave you with another statement including the number 3:

3 the hard way

Have a good weekend

@ Org - Thanks for adding more confusion to my already confused state. LOL! I'm starting to think that the #3 is more trouble than it's worth.

I don't believe it's about good and bad, positive and negative. The number three is about CHANGE. three deaths. Three births. It's powerful both ways - I believe as a reminder that evil constantly fights against good. What we reap from "3" depends on whose team we're on.

Personally, I like to consider myself on Team Trinity. hehe

i like the last comment that either way its about change that makes a lot of sense...and by the way blu my line # is 13

@ Hawa - so, basically, the #3 is like the yin/yang because for each of the 3's presented, there is both a positive and negative. thanks for your input.
