    My Silent Promise

    I've lost some close internet friends to

    suicide. So my friends - real life friends, made me make a promise. The promise was to absolutely contact them first if I'm going to kill myself. They said they won't try to stop me, but they will never let me go without saying goodbyes. Currently, they're the ones that I know...

    I Don't Make Promises I Can't Keep...

    I don't make promises that I am not willing to keep. Giving and keeping my word is very important to me. Of course there are times when there is an exception if perhaps I made a promise to accomplish something by a certain date and one of my kids got sick. Then the date...

    Or I Don't Make Any

    I probably hate breaking promises more than most things that annoy me about myself. I rarely do and if I have doubts about being able to make good, I just won't promise. Sometimes, it might take me a looong time, but I eventually will make good.

    All The Time

    If I say I will do something, I mean it. Of course, if the person I made the promise too does something bad to me, I consider it null and void, and that happens a lot to me. It's not that I'm too trusting, it's that I don't want to let people down. Everyone out there is better...

    99% of the Time I Do

     That's why I stopped threatening people...because threats have no affect when they're empty.  I like to keep my promises and if I tell you I'll knock you on your ***, you pushed me to the edge, so back off.  To friends and authorities, I keep them to let them know...
