Never Make Promises You Can’t Keep

“Promises are meant to be broken”, sabi nila. Pero hindi yan mabebreak sa taong may word of honor talaga. Sa taong marunong tumupad. Sa taong alam yung feeling ma-disappoint kasi nangyari din iyon sa kanya. Nowadays, people make promises that they can’t keep. At kapag hindi nila natupad iyon, they will apologize and ask for another chance. Some will keep them, some will fail again. At dahil failed na naman, hihingi na naman sa’yo uli ng chance. Pang-ilan na yun? Third? And because that person is important to you, you will never get tired of giving him nth chances.

Pero hindi mo ba naisip na kahit ilang kapalpakan pa ang ginawa niya, ilang beses man niyang hindi matupad ang mga pangako niya, nate-take for granted ka na lang? That person knows that no matter how many times he will fail, in the end, you will give that person another chance. Yeah, another chance to hurt you. To make you cry. To disappoint you. Tapos sa huli magsisisi ka na sana pala hindi na. Na nasayang oras mo.

Kaso may iba’t ibang klase talaga ng tao dito sa mundo. Meron kayang magbigay ng chance kahit ilan pa ‘yan because they can wait and be patient for that person to keep it. Meron namang hindi, because they’re too tired and afraid of being disappointed.

“People around me kept disappointing me. I want someone who truly keeps their promises.”

This is to the people who are victims of failed promises. The best way to avoid disappointment is never EXPECT. Kahit feeling mo na siya yung tipo ng taong may isang salita, never. Maging neutral ka lang. Hear them, but never believe them ’til they have proven it. May mga tao kasi talaga na kapag pinangakuan, maniniwala na. These people will never learn this phrase, “The less you expect, the less disappointed you will be” if they have not experienced disappointment. The devastating kind of disappointment. Perhaps not expecting is the only way.

To the people who make promises they do not intend to keep. Can you please STOP? If you can’t keep your promise, why make it? You’re simply humiliating yourself. And hurting the person who expects a lot from you. Kaya kung ayaw mong mapahiya, wag mo na gawin. Okay? And just because that person gave you nth chances, doesn’t mean you can take them for granted. Eventually that person will get tired and leave you. Wag laki ulo.

Don’t say it. Do it. Prove it. Tapos!
