Empty promises lead to broken hearts. I’m sure we all know how it feels to be on the receiving end of this, but how often are we the ones not following through with what we’ve said? I am terribly guilty of performing lip service, but my actions haven’t always lined up with my words. I don’t set out to hurt people or be a flake, but too often busyness, distractions, pride and self-centered thinking lead me to neglecting the commitments I have made.
Few things hurt me more than being misunderstood. Sometimes my words are taken out of context or misconstrued. Or my actions are misinterpreted and misjudged. I know I’m far from perfect, but when people look at me and don’t really see me, it leaves me feeling sad and unsure.
