101 Tips for When They’re Back: Tip #7 – Fullfill Promises

It is natural that many conversations began or ended with “When you get back I will or we will…”.  It is important that you each stand by the commitments that you made.  A large part of getting back on track in any relationship is redeveloping strong levels of trust and loyalty – If you aren’t willing to do what you promised you might struggle with both.  Be prepared to live up to what you have promised.

Suggestions:

* Don’t make promises you know you will not be able to keep

* Think about what you say and how much of a time commitment the promise will be

* Be realistic with promises that you make

* If you make several promises, write them down so you don’t forget them

* Be specific with promises so that there are no misunderstandings later

* Ask for help if you need it

* Ensure the promises are affordable
