I Believe Promises Must Be Kept

    Don't make promises that you can't keep.

    Some people take promises to heart. You break your promise, you break someone's heart, and hopes.

    True Intentions

    You should never promise something you've no intention of keeping. It devalues everything else you might agree to.

    My Promises

    Promises are said not to be my thing. In my experience people generally are full of them and it seems very rare that a person is genuinely able to follow thru with the promises they make. This doesn’t mean that I don’t make promises it just means that I am a person of my word...

    Promises

    A promise is a promise. It is not meant to be taken lightly. Throughout my life i have told 'I promise, I promise, I promise,' and they have never followed through. When I make a promise, i keep it. I follow through. I dont know about you, but i sure like people following through...

    I Am A Promise Keeper~

    I am a promise keeper! I believe if I promise you something, no matter what it is, it is my obligation to fulfill it. I have ALWAYS felt this way. You should never promise someone if you have no intention of keeping the promise, I mean why devalue your word? Isn't your word...

    Obviously it depends on what promises you have

    made. Not making a "promise" is often better than reneging on a causal promise later. Don't assume that all promises are a good choice or healthy...

    We Need To Remain Honorable

    If we can't keep a simple promise, then what do we have? Nothing really...I hated my dad a little more for every broken promise he ever made.

    Words To Stand By:

    If you can't keep a promise, don't make it. It makes people feel as if they can't trust anyone when one person lies or breaks a promise.  Even if they don't realize it, it will slowly bring their faith in people down.  Don't be one of those people.

    I Make Them, But Am Always Cautious

    If I ever make someone a promise, I view it as something I will do no matter what. I always keep my promises, and people who make them but don't follow through are jerks, unless there's an extremely good reason for why they didn't. Like they we're being held against their will or...

    Think the pinky promise is just done lame thing

    children do? It's not it's symbolic. Originally the pinky promise was done to ensure that the promise was really kept if not the person who broke the promise would have to cut of his/her pinky... Just a fun fact to remind us that, promises are meant to be kept.

    Promises Should Not Be Broken.

    If someone promises me something, I expect them to live up to their promise and not go back on it... If you can't make it happen don't promise it to begin with! The only time I can forgive a broken promise is when there where circumstances that resulted in the promise being...

    Never Make A Promise,

    unless you know that you're not only going to keep it, but you WANT to keep it. A friend of mine told me that it was best to just never make promises, that if you were going to do something for someone then you either do it when the time comes or you don't do it but then you can...

    Please Don't Break Me

    You say you love me and that you want to be with me.  You say you want me to let you in.  The promises you have made me have given me hope.  I hope that you meant them because my love for you runs deeper than the current and broken promises do more than simply...
