Human mind tends to forget when other people do the right things, but always remember when other people make mistake. Because we know that this is how the mind works, sometimes it’s harder for us to admit whenever we make mistake rather than to acknowledge whenever we do the right things.
That means we have to be really careful when making a commitment. Because once we break it or modify it, the-person-we-commited-to might not like it, and see the changes as our fault and will never be able to forget it.
Therefore, before making a commitment we should really think through it.
Take a deep breath and think, whether we’ll always be able to do as agreed or there might be times when we’ll not be able to do so. Or whether the-person-we-committed-to might tighten the commitment or might loosen up in the middle of it.
Take a deep breath and think, how serious it will be if there are changes made in the middle of the commitment. How (in)flexible we are and the-person-we-commited-to.
Take a deep breath and think, how big is our heart to admit whenever there’s mistake made, both in the beginning or during the commitment. And how big is his/hers.
Take a deep breath and think, how committed we are and the-person-we-commited-to in order to achieve the goal of the commitment. How important is the commitment, for us and for him/her.
The journey is counted. But what really matters is whether the goal of the commitment is achieved or not. Be realistic in the logical world.
