And this is how I see it -- commitment must be re-imagined in terms of committing to the PERSON whom we love rather than committing to the STRUCTURE in which we have shoved the image of that person we “love”.
Hi Kris,

Hiba- thank you for this writing. Like you, I believe that commitment to the other person is an integral part of relationships and it does not negate the commitment to ourselves. They’re not opposed ideas, nor commitment is the problem with love or relationships. Ability to commit and sustain commitments is part of being a mature person, and in love may mean many things, including the commitment to love and accept someone else’s decisions and needs, even if they go against what we would like them to go.
