Is it hard to be committed?

January 14, 2010

Is it hard to be committed? For some it’s easy and for others very hard. Anyone can be committed to a job or hobby, but what about your significant other?

          Commitment shows that you are ready to take your relationship to the next step. You are willing to give love, trust, honesty, respect, devotion and so much more to one person. Yet somehow lust comes along and you are willing to throw everything away.

          I don’t understand why people get into relationships just to cheat. You would think the person would think about the other people’s feelings, but they don’t. Betraying the commitment opens the door for more problems.

          Cheating can hurt someone’s feelings. They can become angry, sad, depressed, jealous, crazy and more. Physical abuse may come about. You cannot play on people emotions. I would prefer for someone to be single than to cheat. If you cheat to me that shows you were never ready for something more.

          Commitment, Commitment what is wrong with the word? A lot of people hear it and get scared like it’s a disease. Take the next step when you are ready and not pressured. A lot is at stake when it comes to commitment.

    I agree with you that you shouldn’t make a commitment to someone unless you’re really ready to. I also know that there are some people who are cheaters and will always cheat, but there are others who are not like that.

    I agree with these thoughts about commitment. Too often “commitment” and “marriage” are confused. It seems like a lot of people get married because that is what the dominant society expects. I can’t imagine a worse reason to do something. Everyone needs to make a positive contribution to their community and to follow their own conscience.

    Very true. It’s important to consider commitments seriously before making them and to take them seriously thereafter. We violate one another when we forget to take this into account.
