The One Promise I Always Fail to Keep

I keep other promises to friends and family, but I frequently break this one.

In my affairs with people around me, I do things out of excitement and part of these things is to make promises.

I love my integrity and so when I make promises to my friends and/or family, I ensure I keep them.

I have been able to build this habit over the years and so, therefore, I manage how I make those promises. There are sometimes I am forced to make promises by siblings or friends and then I am compelled to keep them.

After so many years, I discovered that I have kept my integrity in that area of my life for a long time. But I knew something was lacking.

I realized that I always fail to keep the promises I make to myself.

I would promise myself that I will read a book or exercise at a particular time or something else, but I end up not doing them.

I was keeping my integrity with other people and not with myself. When I realized this, I consciously changed how I did them.

So, if I set a goal for myself, I ensure I achieve it because I see it as keeping the promise I made to myself.

Since then, my life took a new turn. Things became a lot better for me and I am now able to achieve a lot more.

People would be happy with me for keeping my promises to them, but that which concerns me many times would suffer until I changed the approach and started keeping every promise to friends, family, and myself.

I got to know myself better and eventually healed myself and itโ€™s been bliss since I made the decision.
