What are we committed to? Who are we committed to? How do we decide to commit to someone or something? How do we feel when someone commits to us?
Commitment is defined as the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. It's also an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action; a responsibility, action or duty. When we think about commitment, we often reflect on our relationships. Marriage is a form of commitment. You make a conscious decision to commit your life to another person. Now, hopefully you've done your "due diligence" to conclude whether or not your partner is worthy of your commitment. You take some time to get to know that person. What are their likes and dislikes? What are their career goals? What's their family like? Do they want to have children? Are they supportive? How do they manage their money? Are you passionate about this person? We must consider all of these things when we decide to commit to someone. Yes, commitment is a decision. It's a choice that we make. It's the sacrifice that we make to achieve our goals. It's how we get to the next level...
