Well, we make promises to our loved ones and friends. Therefore, it is quite important that we promise only those things which we can fulfil. Most of the time, I keep my promises.
Here I would like to share a moment when I was not able to keep my promise due to unforeseeable circumstance. A couple of months back, I made a promise to my wife that I would take her to a restaurant for dinner. I was quite busy those days, and my wife was quite frustrated with me because I was not able to give her enough time. To clam her down, I made a promise to go for dinner. On the same day which I had planned to go outside with my wife, I received a call from my client and he told to me that something unusual was happening to the website. His company’s website was hacked. Therefore, my whole attention was shifted to recovering data and code of the website. I forgot that I planned to go with my wife. When I came back, we had an argument with each other.
On the very next day, I took leave from the office. We went to the cinema and had lunch together. So, this was the time when I broke my promise and I felt quite bad. Though it was totally unintentional, but it was my mistake to forget the promise.
