It seems to me that everyone has been burnt, at least once in their life,
by someone making a promise that they did not keep, or experienced a failed compromise.
(note the spelling of compromise ie com promise). Or maybe you failed to live up to a promise or compromise. Either way, because of this some of us are now hesitant to even make an agreement or maybe we should be.
Well I have news for you, I don’t think that personal “agreements” are the same as promises or compromises. And in my view, we can even “agree” to make personal agreements even more different than we could imagine. Yes, that is the power of personal agreements and of using our imagination.
For me, it takes just one person to make a promise but it takes two to make an agreement and that can be anything now and evolve into even more later.
