Commitment

Sticking it out without feeling tied down

Two hands intertwined, one wearing a wooden ring
Two hands intertwined, one wearing a wooden ring
My partner and I hold hands two years before our marriage. We handmade our engagement rings out of oak.

Are the choices you make “free” or are they bound by expectations and duty?

I call it the self-love trap because it can create barriers for the very things we long for and seek — companionship, a sense of belonging, and love.

I made this commitment and if I don’t like it, I can change it.
