the statement (oral or written) of an exchange of promises


Agreements need not be written as contracts, they can be done orally, with the mind and the heart.


That’s the ultimate reason why there’s something called pinky swear.


For me, a person getting himself in an agreement by means of pinky swears trusts the other parties involved. Thus, being part of a pinky swear means you are a trustworthy person.


Sadly, this trust is commonly abused. In one way or another, consciously or unconsciously, we abuse the trust given to us. We push to the limits and beyond.


Sometimes, trust more like the ningas-kugon habit here in the Philippines. The kugon easily burns, exponentially in a way or another. Like, trust is given then suddenly taken back. Sometimes the start of a kugon fire is excessive heat created unintentionally. Though sometimes the kugon is set on fire by someone or something.


Moreover, there are also some people whose trust is very hard to get. They act like as if they can trust no one in the world. You know what I mean so I need not elaborate.


What I’m trying to say here is that an agreement is always and will always be an agreement. Unless all concerned parties agree to break off the agreement, the agreement is still deemed valid, therefore all concerned parties must abide. It’s such a shame if you don’t abide by the rules of an agreement without informing the other parties of special circumstances. Especially if there is an external party who witnessed the resolution of the agreement.


Well, this is life.


On a sidenote, tomorrow is the premiere of High School Musical 2. Must watch!
