Promises, meant to be kept

Fulfilling promises and vows are very important in our life. According to the most of our belief a man, or woman, is only as good as their word. Keeping promises to another person is what separates fair and reliable people from the hypocrites. And we all need this… we all need to know that we’re being lied to, that we can count on each other no matter what.

I know there could be circumstances that change the outcome of a promise, but when it’s in your power to change it, I really think it’s more important to keep your promise. Of course we don’t accuse politicians who break their promises made during election, but sadly we are used to them doing that, dare I say, we don’t even care that much about what they promised in the first place, knowing it’s probability of happening.

Some people will make promises because they think it’s what you want to hear, so we should watch out for this. But why do they think it’s better to promise something and then brake it? Wouldn’t it be much easier for them too, to just not promise in stead of letting you dream on, or whatever the case may be?

The biggest disappointment comes when a friend of yours, a relative, someone close to you breaks his promise. Or for example, if you are in a relationship with the person who broke their promise, let’s even add that he broke more than one promise, how are you supposed to be sure that he will keep his marriage wows? If he’s not even capable of keeping a small promise, how could he keep those? I think this is something everyone can think about, and treat the people around you, how you would like to be treated.

Do you keep your promises?

  1. Yes, empty promises and roses wouldn’t work, at the end of the day it’s our actual performance of those promises that counts. Words fail to speak, it’s action that speaks. Good relation is action, less of empty words and promises. It’s ok if we promise less, but it’s important that we perform our promises in action.

    Good point in the post. thanks.

  2. Exactly! Thanks for your input :)

  3. And you don’t know the half of it… :P
