Commitment Issues

wood-100181_640Commitment issues aren’t simply a romantic relationship issue. Struggles with commitment show up in various forms in people’s lives. The areas that tend to be most affected are relationships and career, but this can also extend to a general sense of not being able to set down roots in many contexts. When commitment issues surface, people may notice that they tend to bounce from one job, or one partner to the next, and are continuously starting over; or are tempted to do things such as cheating on a partner, or making unfulfilled promises, etc. It becomes difficult to achieve a true feeling of being settled, secure, and fulfilled in the present. A desire for more, and for change, is constantly looming — the grass is always greener on the other side.
