Did you ever promise to show up on time, promise to do a household chore, promise to never make a stupid mistake again, promise to attend an important event, and promise to be faithful? Don’t fulfill a promise and someone will be hurt or offended even though you may feel it is no great transgression.
Not fulfilling a promise is a form of lying and humans have every right to become upset. Yes, there are times when you get caught in a traffic jam, have more important obligations to do, or just never had the time to fulfill a promise and these excuses are accepted by many because they are reasonable since the future is sometimes unpredictable and can wreak havoc on a promise.
Unfortunately breaking your promises with excuses each time can become a bad habit and you will soon be thought of as an unreliable and untrustworthy human to stay away from. Don’t show up at work on time too frequently and you will be fired and don’t show up for a first date on time and your reputation will be in the toilet in most cases.
Punctuality is no longer revered as it once was and humans frequently waste their time, energy, and sometimes money waiting on someone to show up and develop a very bad opinion of the offender.
Advertisements are filled with deceptive promises of beauty, health, longevity, good dates, sexual success, educational success, security, social status, and sudden great wealth which are all hidden lies. Society permits false promises or lying and it is no wonder that the common man and woman are also making many false promises to each other and don’t realize that the relationship is suffering from an absence of total trust which is what happens when you are not honest, sincere, and reliable in your relationship.
Don’t make a promise which you don’t intend to keep and you will become a more trustworthy and reliable human who is more respected and admired by others including your significant other.
