How does it feel when somebody makes a promise and then lets you down?
It feels terrible, right?
Even if it was something minor such as accompanying us to go shopping, or joining us to hang out on the weekends. It turns all the excitement and hopes that we’ve built up into sadness or disappointment.
Having someone who constantly fails to deliver on their promises makes us feel less likely to want to trust them. We feel like we will be misled or that something will be taken away from us whether it’s money, time, or effort.
So would you really consider trusting your money or time with someone like that? How about your life or future? Would you like to be in a relationship with them? The answer will most likely be a resounding “no”.
Now turn that other person into yourself.
If you make a commitment or promise to yourself and then break that promise, what’s the impact?
We may think that it doesn’t matter much since it’s only with ourselves, but the impact is just the same. The impact is that we lose our personal integrity.
Personal integrity is what makes sure that we deliver on our promises whether someone is watching us or not. So if we keep losing it, then we will just keep on breaking promises to ourselves because we subconsciously know that we wouldn’t follow up on it.
It becomes a habit and then it slowly chips away at your self respect and self esteem.
This will be in direct proportion to your self worth.
People who value themselves do what the say they will do!
Do what you say you’re going to do – with others, and especially with yourself.
Your worth it ❤️
