This is a question concerning private vows. Are we obliged to keep rash vows we make? I'm referring to those vows we make without enough consideration as to how difficult and sacrificing it might be to fulfill those vows.
For example: when i was about 12 years old, i promised to be a "better Christian" if my prayer was answered. But today my situations have differred as Im in a different life stage. I obviously didnt take enough time to consider how that the vow I was making would be applicable as I grew up. Also, i find that "be a batter Christian" phrase to be too broad. I couldve possibly meant to never sin again, seeing I was immature.
Any input would be appreciated. I also note that I looked at the canons in regards to this but cant apply them to my situation.
