I Hate Broken Promises

Don't make a promise you KNOW you can't keep! 1,193 People

    You Told Me

    You told me you love me, you told me I was your friend. You told me you wanted to honor my name. You told me when you wrote a book, I'd be the first to get it. You told me when you moved, you'd find me a friend. You told me so much, but it's all gone. You liar. You cheat. Why did...

    Promises are empty to me.

    So many people have made promises and not fulfill them. I make them and keep them. But when i ask for a promise it's nothin but emptiness

    Ahh. Broken promises.

    Go figure. Anything anyone tells me on here is fake. Can someone just be real and honest?

    People still saying their promises.

    But they can't really do it. They just making other feels like they are not trust worthy.

    My boyfriend promise me that he wouldn't leave me here in Duson, La. and he is leavening for Texas. I don't know what to do. I have to finish school before I can move with him. I'm heart broken and don't know what to do any more. He is the love of my life. We've been through hell...

    Why do you keep making promises of a better

    life giving me hope when you know it's a lie. Why do you keep promising me that you'd get better when each day you get even worse. I don't understand

    I Wish People Wouldn't Make Promises They Can't Keep

    Now and then is understandable, but it seems like everyone that makes me a promise can't keep it. I don't make many promises becuase if I know I can't keep it or I'm unsure I usually stay on the side of caution and don't make any gurentees. I hate it when people do make promises...

    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 make ******* promises

    that you can't keep. It's that simple, and still some people just don't get it. What means nothing to you, means the world to someone else.

    What I Realized After

    One thing that I have learned from my first break up is that promises are actually useless. Think about it, not trying to be too negative, but things change overtime. People get older, thoughts change, hormones change, circumstances around you change, etc. So what we say today...

    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...

    i trusted easily(which was really naive of me). Until i experienced a series of empty and broken promises that broke my heart again and again. It hurt me so much, i felt disappointed, sad, helpless and alone. But now, i don't trust so easily. It may sound sad, but i don't...

    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.

    Your Word Is Your Bond

    A promise is a lot more important than many people realize. When you promise something, that becomes your priority. It becomes something you have to put every ounce of your will into fulfilling. Its importance comes from the fact that when you make a promise, you're making a pact...

    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...

    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?
