Too Many Promises

How many promises have you made? Can you remember each one? Are there any promises you’ve forgotten? How would you know?

When I fell in love with my girlfriend, I made a lot of promises. Which was sweet and everything, because they were from the bottom of my heart.

But then three years later, I would suddenly remember something. Didn’t I promise her I wouldn’t do that? Or, didn’t I promise her I’d be doing this, instead?

Truth is, I really didn’t know. I’d made too many promises.

Maybe I should have written them down–kept a journal of promises I’d made.

Then again, as we both grew older and continued to change, we decided some of the promises were downright crazy.

Just how much does a promise mean when you’ve made too many to remember?

And just how seriously can your promises be taken when you make and take them lightly?

Promises are great, but they need to mean a lot.

Are you being careful when you make promises?

When you feel like making a promise, slow down and think. Do you really mean it?

What is a promise you shouldn’t have made?
