As aggravating and hurtful as it can feel, I will try to be generous here, and say that they are learning. They lack the confidence and self-worth to do as their promise demands. It is easier for them to deceive themselves and promote their actions because they truly believe that they have to, otherwise no one will like/appreciate/trust them. Or, worse case scenario, they just don't care.
