Promises: If you can’t honour it, don’t make it…

0 62

Heeeehhh!!! Make sure you don’t make promise(s) that you know you can never honour to an individual. There are different ways people take disappointments. To some, disappointments give them no other option than to revenge. The revenge could be so personal in its extremity.


If a guy promises marriage to a 35yr old lady, who has been told that she needs to have kids on or before she attains 40yrs, then disappoint her. Haa, My hand no dey o!! She could have invested more than you thought in both emotional and financial terms to make your promise a reality. There might not be so much room to manoeuvre for her in terms of options. Hmm!!!


If a lady disappoints a guy who sponsored her kid brother(s) with her in school because the guy is “not sophisticated enough”. Hmmm, dat one get as e be o!! The guy might have faced lots of “demeaning taunts” from friends and family members because of this yet he endured. The guy could have thought that the investment would yield fruits in his own determination to prove being a worthy lover that could be leaned on. A lot of processes could have gone into this I tell you.


Promising and failing to give some money to a desperate man, whose family is about to be ejected from their apartment due to non-payment of rent, can turn ‘murky’ I tell you. It could mean the difference between his family staying on in the apartment or being ejected into the open streets. Some people could make you their real nemesis before the devil in this instance I tell you.


Promising Job to an unemployed and desperate man, whose wife is about to leave because “she don over-suffer”, is a promise that must be kept o.If not, I no dey oo!! The whole wahala that has been brewing in his house would just be blamed on you. You might not escape the fallouts from this.



I can go on…The bottom line is: Let wisdom guide you whenever you want to open your mouth because the other party may be unforgiving if you fail in your promise. It is not compulsory that you must promise even when you are in a tight corner. That “little promise” you offered but couldn’t fulfil could be the main difference between people “being normal or going mad”. Sometimes your failure to keep it could be fatal both ways …… Ewolewoooooo!!!!! #Ewolewoo!!
