People make promises all the time, but they rarely keep them. Have you ever wondered why this is?
There are a few theories for it, but it all boils down to the fact that human beings are on the wrong side of lazy. Getting us to do anything, even for our own benefit, is often difficult.
Sometimes, our failed promises are promises to ourselves. I'm sure most of you have promised to start eating healthier, to start exercising, and to start spending more time on what you should be doing. Most of you likely don't get off your ass and do any of this.
Breaking promises to yourself is one thing. Breaking your promises to your partner, however, is another story. The promise may seem insignificant to you. To your partner, however, it means everything.
If people wised up, they'd realize that instead of promising action, they should promise inaction. We'd all be better off if we used laziness to our advantage instead of trying to break our habits.
Don't promise “to do”; promise to “not do.” It may seem like a small difference, but even a fraction of difference makes a huge impact over the years.
Before you decide that you're ready to say “I do,” it's best that you're sure you can promise these 50 “I don'ts."Source: http://elitedaily.com/dating/i-donts-bef...
