#4: Let's break all our promises, shall we?

I'm definitely not one to make new years resolutions and carry them out, but I am even less likely to make a promise and keep it. So, this year, I made a resolution that I would make absolutely no promises.
Funny thing is, I know I made other resolutions, but I completely forgot about them. Not making promises is really easy. It's actually a relief.
See, I have a lot of problems when it comes to promises. I end up making promises because people just can't seem to calm down unless I promise them something. To me, they're just empty words to comfort someone. I've tried to keep my promises before, of course, but they've always ended up in pieces, like shattered glass. And then the person gets hurt because of it. So why not rid of them, right? They're no good to me.
So, purging my self of promises has actually been going pretty well. I don't feel tied down or pressured to do something that is out of my power to do.
Do you make promises? Do you break them? Or do you promise never to promise again?

  1. I can't remember the last time I made a promise. You've the right idea.
