“I’m not going to swear an oath I can’t uphold. When enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better lies.” – Jon Snow, Game of Thrones
I just had to put that quote out there. Because, Game of Thrones. It’s just around the corner. And I. Can. Hardly. Wait.
And then in May comes the Philippines Elections. I’m not even gonna delve on that topic. All I can say is We deserve who we elect.
But back to Jon Snow’s quoteand putting it into context: Have you ever made any promises that you had no intention to keep to begin with?
I know it’s just words, but for every promise I have made there had always been a pure intention to see through it. And when things don’t always turn out as planned, for example, ending a relationship that just won’t work, there are several emotions that occur afterwards: sadness, anger, guilt, regret.
