Many people make promises because they think the promise will make someone happy. Explain that his promises do not make you happy because you doubt that he will carry them out. Clarify that when he breaks a promise, his actions make you feel devalued, unimportant to him and angry because he has let you down again. Turn the tables and ask him how he would feel if you made promises you didnt keep. Ask him to consider your feelings before he promises something that he might not be able to deliver on.
