What is the one word that you think has really lost its meaning? When people say it so casually it has become trivial. To me : I Promise. Is a word that is over-used and many forget the real meaning. Promise is a declaration assuring that one will or will not do something; a vow. People say "I promise to..." but they end up screwing it. Or when you tell your secrets to your friends and they say they'll promise to keep it a secret but they just say it to others behind your back. And in marriages as well. We no longer think about the real meaning of the word 'promise' that used to ensure everyone. Sorry well, everyone makes mistakes and when they are asked to apologize, they just say 'sorry' and keep doing the same mistakes again and again. If they keep doing those mistakes then there is no meaning of saying sorry.
