I Hate Broken Promises

Don't make a promise you KNOW you can't keep! 1,848 People

    This feeling for me can vary from an itch in my

    brain to a grand betrayal that makes me hide in bed for days. I'm clear about this. Life gets in the way and that's fine. But if it was never your intention to keep your promise, do a thing, make something happen, THEN DONT SAY YOU WILL in the first place!!!!

    This is exactly why I don't use the word'

    "promise" carelessly. It hurts beyond repair when a promise is broken. You not only gave me your word, you made a promise on that word. Tread cautiously when using the term. I've broken a few, it is never pleasant.

    years about a "promising" future that's not there.

    Never promise the moon.

    If you can't keep a promise, then don't make it cause you'll only hurt people.

    I have learned my lessons,

    I don't believe in promises anymore. It is better not to believe and expect at all rather than being disappointed at the end. Sorry but I just don't believe in promises at all.

    as i always say, i am not against the

    relationship between young and older. but there should be balance. young should be at least close to maturity. under 20s are kids. they dont know any shhhhhhhit but killing time and playing around. jumping around from tree to tree. cant fit in one place.

    Time And Time Again

    It seems like every time someone uses the "P" word towards me it is a straight up lie. I can't count the times someone has promised me something and turned right around and broke the promise. Dishonesty is bad enough but when you let someone down like that it can be painful...

    when people say there going to do some thing and they don't do double that if they promise it like you can never believe or trust any thing they say again after that

    A woman with trust issues is a woman

    that heard "I promise, I'll never hurt you" too many times with actions that told otherwise.

    Promises No Longer Mean Anything In My Family

    I don't care how big

    or small it is. If you promised it, keep it. The fact that you break it makes me feel like I'm not worth it. Atleast if you can't fulfill it, tell me so that I don't keep waiting on nothing. It hurts when you break your promises. It kills me when you do it over and over again...

    Broken Promises

     I hear your best intentions, to the point of getting bored, when you make such promises, it leaves your game unscored. It’s better not to mention it, then give me a surprise, when I heard your excuses, they sounded more like lies. If you have...

    Don't tell me what you ARE going to do to/for me

    unless you really intend to do that. I can take promises that don't happen, but if the promise offer-er has no intention of following through then it's a waste.

    Don't Make a Promise If You Don't Intend On Keeping It.

    Promises mean the world to me.  When someone makes a promise, I expect them to keep it. I don't understand it...  Do people really have THAT much trouble keeping a promise?
