Promises are made.
Promises are broken.
Promises are kept.
John Lennon sang, “Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.”
The breaking of and keeping of promises are closely tied together.
I don’t think most people make promises to break them; but, if great care isn’t given, that’s exactly what we do.
And, when that happens, hearts are also broken; lives are changed; and, futures are rewritten.
“I will love you forever” quickly rings hallow when a promise isn’t kept.
Let’s focus not so much on making promises as keeping them.
