Daily fake promises are killing our relationships
Oh yes, I will have it done by tomorrow. No worries. And then nothing happens.
A couple of weeks later, you don't have any updates so while trying to figure out what has happened, you get some priceless answers:
I totally forgot about it, yeah yeah I am on top of it, I will have it done by tomorrow (really? come on 🙄), oh yes, now that you mentioned it it rings a bell, it wasn't clear that this should be done within that week, I didn't add it in my agenda, so I missed it, thanks for reminding this to me, unfortunately something came up, I decided to go on vacation since I had to rest, this is still in my top-priorities list, no worries, you know that you can trust me and the excuses list keeps on growing.
Sound familiar? Why so many people prefer lying in front of our face and then do it again just to get over an awkward situation while both of us know that they lie? Why not having the @@ to run a sincere conversation in the first place by talking honestly? Sounds silly but it happens every day.
Fake promises are often used to avoid difficult discussions or to get out of a tricky situation. However, making false promises may provide a temporary escape, but in the long run, it can destroy trust and credibility, leading to severe consequences.
One of the biggest risks of making false promises is the damage to our reputation. When we make a promise, people expect us to keep it. They rely on us. If we fail to deliver on our promises, it will harm our reputation and our credibility will suffer. This can lead to a loss of trust and confidence in us and our abilities, which can be challenging to regain.
Another problem with fake promises is that they are often made out of fear or desperation. We may make a promise to avoid a confrontation or to get ourselves out of a difficult situation, but in doing so, we are only delaying the inevitable. Instead, it is better to face the problem head-on and deal with it honestly and transparently. This will not only help us avoid further damage to our reputation but also show that we are a trustworthy and reliable person.
In conclusion, fake promises may provide temporary relief, but in the long run, they can destroy our reputation and credibility. It is better to face difficult discussions head-on and deal with them honestly and transparently. This will not only help us avoid various implications but also maintain trust and credibility with those around us.
Remember, honesty is always the best policy, and in the end, it will pay off in more ways than one. Cheers!!
