Commitment is a Choice

True commitment can only happen when you understand it is a choice. You could leave, but you choose to stay...forever....regardless of current circumstances.

So often we stay out of obligation. Perhaps it may be because we feel we have no where else to go. I know there was a time in my life I felt trapped. I couldn't commit to my husband because I saw the marriage as a trap, a cage. I felt controlled and manipulated.

The truth is, I had the power to leave. We all do. Physically may be a challange for some. Others emotionally leave long before their bodies follow. Everyone has the ability to choose to stay or go. It is only by embracing this reality can you make the choice to stay, and only through embracing and owning that choice can you open the doors to the deepest levels of intamacy.
