The “cage” of commitment has certainly been a big theme in my past. A sense of obligation or responsibility for the interests of others that’s often been a more powerful factor in my decision making then my own aspirations. Sometimes it feels very difficult to let go of. Ultimately though it’s very destructive to set the direction of your life based on what other people want or need. It helps to remember that everyone is capable of making choices for themselves as well. Your job is to follow the path you choose for yourself; not the path that would be convenient for someone else.
