Keep the Promise
My father is a stubborn man, and he always keeps what he thinks is right. He is such a strong man in my mind, because he never breaks his promise. The things he has promised to me would be finished, no matter what happens. I see the power of promise from my father, so I believe that keeping promise is very important, which shows whether the person is worthy to be trusted or not. When I make friends, I pay special attention to this merit. My friends and I trust each other. We will return the things in time and keep our promise. I am so lucky that my father brings so much postive sides to me.
The Promise of a Friend
I like to make friends, because I can talk to them and learn from them. But the trustful friends are not easy to make. Luckily, I have one. His name is Li Hua. We knew each other since we were five years old, and he is nice to me all the time. Last week, I lent a book to Li Hua and he promised to return in a week, because I needed that book to finish my homework. Today was the last day and I really needed that book to hand in my hometwork tomorrow. I called Li Hua, but there was no one answered. I must be criticized by my teacher for not finishing homework in time. After dinner, Li Hua came to my house and returned the book. He apologized and explained that his mother was sick. I was so moved for he kept his promise. He was a real friend.
The Importance of Keeping Promises
When we judge a person, we are likely to think about whether he or she is keeping promises, the person who always keeps his promises is popular, people around him are willing to make friends with him. So keeping promises is very important, we should never break our promises, or we will be abandoned by others. First, we should never late for meeting or date. When we make a deal with others to meet at some places, we shall be there in time or earlier, it is rude to be late and let others wait for a long time. I hate my friends late for meeting, though they have reasons, they could have been here in advance. Second, we’d better think twice before making a promise, if we promise people, it means we have ability to finish it, people are hold great hope on us, if we fail, how disappoint it is. So we should measure ourselves before we making a promise.
