:Model Answer

They say keep your promises if you make any. And the fear of breaking promises often deters me from ever making it – from when I started understanding its gravity. But there are still times when I did make vows, and to my dismay, to find out later that I hadn’t been able to keep them all! Today, for this topic, I’d like to talk about a promise that I made to myself, and that I also broke just a couple of weeks later

It was 2018 when I’d just finished university studies, and was looking for a job. The shift from comparatively relaxed student life, the pressure to land a job, my financial condition and large debt – all mounted an invisible pressure on my shoulder. Moreover, disrupting sleep pattern and a change in weather affected my mood to a great extent. I found myself in a situation where I was losing my temper pretty quickly, which is contrary to my usual self. In fact, I was known to have a great composure and nerve

So, one day, after losing temper and getting angry for no apparent reason and shouting to a taxi driver, who I thought was arguing unnecessarily, I realised something had changed in me which I did not expect and like at all. On that very day, I made a promise to myself that I would behave more prudently and never let my temper take control of me

I made this promise to myself because I never liked hot-tempered persons who get angry without valid reasons. I always believed such people could do a little better by being a bit wiser and less bitter. So naturally, I didn’t want to become one of those persons

When I made the promise, I felt great. It was like re-inventing myself and being able to erase something bad from my life. But it was equally disappointing when I got angry with my little sister a couple of weeks later forgetting my promise. Some say promises are made to break, but it’s a good thing that I constantly remind myself that I need to keep my promises, and even if I break it once or twice, there is no reason why I should not try harder
