You've talked the 'talk' but can you walk your 'talk'?
Talk is cheap...
Sometimes the talks and promises were just overwhelming.
But when the time comes to deliver, promises left as empty promises and talk becomes lies.
My mom told me the story of 'the boy who cried wolf' since before I could remember.
We should avoid such instances or just stop pomising altogather. Tell the truth. Is it so hard to? If help or assistance are required, then just ask.
Empty promises reflects ones reliability, honesty, sincererity and of course integrity.
People who depended on these promises might get hurt.
Please consider others rather than just yourselves...
