Commitment. 31 May 2010


Ah, that dreaded word evokes so much from some.  Why commit when you can come and go as you please?

Why take the package when you can settle for a trial?

Why decide now when you can think about it later? What is the fear of commitment, to anything really, all about?

Are we scared that of the responsibilities that it entails? Are we afraid of what expectations are placed on us?

Do we fear being locked in and never escaping — the situation doesn’t sound nor look pleasant.


The problem with not committing and telling yourself you will actually make a decision someday is that someday never really arrives. It stays up there on the plane of possibilities. The problem with not committing is there you think you have all these choices but in the end, you make none. You swoon over the possibilities, you conjure up all manner of options and everything stays light and easy. Nothing is as difficult as a decision made. Nothing is as certain. Nothing is as risky. So you ask yourself — which do you prefer ? How is that impacting on the choices you see before you? How can things be different for you?
