    Default Do you guys have especial trouble keeping promises?

    I know I have, throughout my life.

    I sincerely decide to change a habit or do something at a specific moment of time in the future yet when the opportunity comes I've either forgotten or something has come up.

    I've worked on it alot, and alot of times I can pull through but I still have a huge gaping weakness in this area.

    Anyone else?

    I used to, which is why I don't make promises very often anymore. I only do if I'm certain I can keep it.

    Same here. I usually qualify alot, saying, "Maybe, if nothing else comes up..." or something along those lines.

    I try not to make promises that I can't keep.

    I think it depends on the type of promise. But in general I am pretty good at doing what I say I am going to do.

    The only real solution to this is to learn not to make them... Well not unless you really have to of course

    No. Such a beautiful word, rolls off the tongue.

    Yeah, sometimes if someone gives an ultimatum and you really want to do it and can't unless you say yes right then, and you become determined to do it... and then later fail to.

    I usually pull through, though, I think.

    I always keep promises, which is why I never make them.
    No offense.

    Promises are something sacred. I don't mess around with promises.

    This is more the scenario I have experienced. Someone wants to hang out and I say, "Yeah. Sure. Tomorrow at 2. Sounds fine." Then tomorrow at 2 comes around and I usually forget or I don't forget but don't feel like hanging out.

    But there has been times when a person has called me out on it and made sure to "reschedule" the hang out time and I know that this person is going to keep bringing it up until it happens. Then it becomes a chore. An obligation. I will follow through with it because I did say that I would. Okay. They busted me on a technicality!! But you can believe that I won't ever hang out with that person again. But after hanging out with me in my duty-bound funk of a mood, I'm usually so miserable they don't want to either. Win-win!
