A few years ago I went to a seminar, and the main point was how important it is to keep your word. With family, friends, business clients, it really defines who you are.
the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
I honestly do not understand any other way of being, and if something happens, or you are running late, you just explain what happened, keep it simple. I am shocked when I come across the mentality that keeping your word and respecting others and their time is completely ignored. It is so draining, and I honestly have no energy for that. Words are very powerful, words can heal and words can hurt, so important to be careful what comes out.
