To whom do we commit ourselves to?

We need to pay attention everytime we commit to others certain promises. If the exchanges of promises are made with the the intent of each other’s flourishing, then these are commitments that get stronger in time, like a vow of brotherhood or marriage.

But there are times when promises become like Faustian deals with the devil. These are tempting and may feel immensely pleasurable at first, but the trade-off or bargaining chip is our own humanity, and it is never worth it.
