Society and people’s needs are changing, and individuality is a big part of our growth process and who we are. For those who are looking for more profound connections, commitment is necessary to keep relationships stable in the face of its dynamism.
In its core commitment means making something strong and healthy.
To whom and how much you commit depends on internal and external circumstances. The key is to know yourself and to be honest to yourself and to others with whom you have a relationship with.
You may want to commit casually in some cases and more seriously in others. But if you find yourself wanting a stable and long-lasting relationship, then it is fundamental to make a stronger commitment as it adds to your resilience and respect for the other.
It takes a disciplined mind to focus on what the heart wants and to walk toward it. Once there, it still needs determination to keep it moving toward becoming stronger and stronger.
Keep your perspective and be realistic -- not idealistic -- with how the relationship evolves. You need to be flexible to be able to fit into this ever-changing world and to be able to truly commit to something of value to you.
