Whether your relationship is with a partner, a friend, or a family member, you are not going to promise to each other that you will not disappoint one another because at some point you will. We all have different ways of thinking and behaving; this is what makes us tick. You will both sometimes find yourselves getting angry or frustrated with each other because you don’t see things the same way but what is important is that you don’t go away, you don’t escape, you don’t leave one another. Being disappointed is a fact of life and not an excuse to run away.
