Opinion: Commitment in Relationships

There are a lot of people who believe they need a partner to make them and their life feel complete. In my opinion, it’s a want not a need to be in a relationship. The want to feel loved is a need, but it doesn’t mean you have to be with somebody because your family and your friends can love you. You shouldn’t commit at an early age though because it can cause problems towards your emotional and mental health.

If you commit to one being, you are basically saying that that is the person you want to spend your remaining years with. But it doesn’t always work out, due to cheating or just not getting along, etc., and it can either hurt your feelings or theirs or nobody’s. For example, you have a crush on someone and you begin talking to them. Then it progresses to starting a relationship, and you later realize that they ‘talk’ to other people at the same time as you. Depending on who you are, you’ll have a different reaction. But if you’re the emotional/sensitive person, you may react as heartbroken or upset/sad if you had attached yourself to them at any point. (Others may not feel the same way though.) But that right there shows you’re emotionally affected by their actions.

I’m not saying that you should just quit relationships, but to be cautious.

Relationships can also affect you physically. What I mean by this is you may stop eating or taking care of yourself because you may get so depressed over them.

My point is, don’t get attached easily and/or quickly because you can always replace your feelings but never the memories. And be careful who you choose to be in a relationship with. 


But that’s just my opinion:)
