    A certain fragility becomes associated with something once it is branded with those words - 'I Promise' Plans and dreams suddenly hold a greater weight, yet are balancing on a thinner line as the very act of the promise itself becomes reflective on the promise giver's...

    Too Easily Broken

     I don't make promises or committments I don't keep, and I don't say "I love you" when I don't mean it. It's hard when few others play by the same rules.

    I don't like making promises.

    Time is so fragile and unexpected that i don't even know if i'll wake up tomorrow morning. Promises become broken promises which ultimately lead to heartbreak #dontpromise
