Why do people make promises when they don't have the courage to fulfill them. Promises are made in vain and they should never be taken seriously. Promises are born out of expectations. false expectations. In moments when you are drowned in happiness; in moments when you are boiling with anger; in moments when you are quite upset; we make promises. when we are drunk; when we are in the arms of a Woman we love, we make promises. A stable mind never makes promises, its the job of weak minds. Promises are pleasing impressive words giving pleasure to ears but it gives a hard time to you, your ownself . A man is no one, he does'nt knows what is awaiting in future. Life changes in moments. Life keeps on changing, and so do people. so promises made between two people simply turn into bitter memories living scars on the mind of a person. Promising someone that you will stay forever in their life and then leaving them without giving a reason is really a sinful thing to do. Hope some heartless people understand it.
