Who ever told you relationships are easy, fed you unrealistic expectations of relationships. A relationship is a bond where two imperfect people come together attempting to perfect one another. In order to do this, the couple must be willing to make certain sacrifices to keep the relationship happy, healthy, and prosperous. These sacrifices include dedicating yourself to one individual for a period of time, giving up privacy, and etc.
Unfortunately, there are individuals who view commitment as an obstacle in the path of their pursuit of romantic relationships. This view presents the fear of love or the fear of relationships, and exemplifies a “commitment-phobe”.
Used interchangeably, commitment issues, relationship anxiety, or commitment phobia, is a problem that is not new.
As mentioned in the definition of commitment, it is safe to infer that being committed in a relationship is to be dedicated to that relationship and partner.
Why are you afraid of commitment?
