Relationship issues can surface during the course of a relationship, or also when single. These can present in various ways, including difficulty surpassing third dates, general difficulty with intimacy, patterns of abusive relationships, infidelity, general conflict with others, and more.
Siding along relationships, commitment issues aren’t only 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, you may notice a tendency to bounce from one job, or one partner to the next, and are continuously starting over in various ways; or are tempted to do things such as cheating on a partner, make 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.
