People make promises every day they intend to keep.



Do they keep them? Sometimes, but more often those promises don’t end up being kept. It’s not that we don’t want to keep them, but wanting something and following through with it are two different things.

Who do we break our promises to? Ourselves mostly. New diets, break-ups and bad habits tend to make us eat our words and look like liars. But If we can’t keep promises to ourselves then how could we possibly keep them when we make them to someone else?

Being in love is an amazing feeling but it can also be very difficult at times. Keeping your word is important when it comes to relationships because it builds trust. If you can’t keep promises to yourself how could you keep them when you make them for someone else?

It can sometimes take the pressure off making promises when you are more focused on what not to do.
