I Take Promises Seriously

This is to all who knows what it means to make and keep promises. 572 People

    If I ever make a promise to someone,

    I keep it. Because I am a strong believer in promises! If I have any doubt of keeping it, I won't make a promise. So, if I promise you something, count on me!

    Ability- Inability

    I take promises seriously. Maybe too seriously?  I don't know...  All I know is that I have making promises that I'm unsure if I can keep.  It makes me feel terrible knowing that I was unable to keep a promise that I made to someone I care about.Then again...why should I even...

    I know I shouldn't take them seriously

    because 9/10 times someone promised me something, they didn't do it.

    When people tear you apart

    and promise to leave your life, they should keep that promise. I can't take any more pain so go far away from wherever I am, please.

    I just don't get why you would make a promise

    if you didn't mean it, if you didn't want to promise then you could of said something alternative to 'I promise'

    The words "I promise" don't have to be said to

    actually be involved in a promise. Everything you say you will do, is already taken as one, unless you clearly mention that it is not certain. Be careful with what you say; put on an extra filter on your words.

    Dead on yes. When I make a promise I keep it.

    I can be crafty with my words sometimes so when I do make a promise sometimes it's not why the person excepted it to be but a promise is a promise and they shook on my words so they play by them. So yes I take promises VERY seriously. Lots of people doubt me but there just the...

    Mission Impossible

    I no longer take promises seriously. Why?  Because of all the promises that others made to me and broke.  Because of everyone's inability to do the easiest of **** to keep trust, yet do a couple big things that won't last.  I just can't keep up with taking them seriously for...

    Not serious like I'll kill you

    if you break one though. Just if I make a promise I always keep it. Atleast I try my best in every way to make sure the promise is done. If I ask you a question I usually follow up with "You promise?" Sometimes I don't even realize that I ask that. I just really want the people...

    you make a promise it's a contract,

    it is binding as iron and absolute as death. to lie is to give your tongue, to steal is to lose a hand, the price of a broken word is the most grievous of crimes in my mind
