Do you think breaking promise is bad when you made it in your emotional state. I made one and right after making it I realize I was wrong to make it . I know I won’t be keeping that promise but it’s killing me . Help me . I really want to know your view . Please help me going through it .
I think you should never make a promise when you are not 100% sure you are going to keep it. Even if you’re happy or angry, but especially then. Because when you will be calm and rational you’ll see things in another perspective and then you’ll regret it. So, from now on you should keep this in mind.
The best thing you can do now is to admit that you shouldn’t have done that and tell that person the truth. At least you talk about it than just break your promise without saying anything and disappoint that person. If I were that someone, I’d still be disappointed but not that much, and I would appreciate that you had the power to admit that it was wrong to promise that.
Everybody makes mistakes. We are human.
Thanks for the suggestion . Yes, I got the very big lesson from my mistake . But the sad thing is I can’t say sorry to this person as I’m so scared to go to him now . I think I have to live with this regret. Can you give me advice on how to let it go .
I think the best way to let it go is talking to that person. I am sure you’ll feel better after talking to that person. Tell him or her you are sorry but you can’t make it or any reasons why you can’t.
Make sure you’ll think twice next time before you make a promise. Hope this helps and good luck.
I really can’t tell this person and that what’s killing me . We live in very conservative society . He is very respected person. I have been to him twice and when I made the promise , I was so emotional when I made the promise but after few days I realized I can’t keep it . I really respect this person , his opinion really matter to me but I just can’t keep the promise . I’m in such a dilemma nor can I go back nor can I move forward . I have been trying self help .i think I m falling into depression , I don’t have anyone to talk to , it’s been month I haven’t been out of my house. I am so nervous to meet other person , I always think what’s other gonna think about me . I can’t stop dwelling on my mistake , I just can’t help but beat my self for stupidity . How can I be such a stupid . I m thinking of leaving my country so I don’t have to face this person . Please help me any advice or suggestion .
