Conmiting... (Connie J...)

1. carry out or perpetrate (a mistake, crime, or immoral act).

2. pledge or bind (a person or an organization) to a certain course or policy.

As Google explains, above, there are many ways and things to commit to.
In any relationship, there are, or should be commitments made to each other in varying degrees, or levels - depending on the relationship.
For example, your commitment to your job, would/should be different than your commitment to spouse/immediate family. Or your commitment to your immediate family, would/should be different to your extended family.
Now, commitment IS a two-way street - this helps keep things in balance. If you are in an abusive relationship, I am pretty sure that is NOT a part of YOUR commitment to said relationship; thereby, the commitment agreement may need to be reworked - with firmer stipulations on both of your expectations for the relationship.
If an agreement cannot be reached, without abuse from either side...should changes be made? Are you ready for THAT commitment to yourself?
Tis not an easy road to yourself - but that should be your FIRST commitment. Remember the reference to the oxygen mask on an airplane? The Mother is to get hers on, first, BEFORE helping her children, so she is not incapacitated by lack of oxygen.
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
