1. Confession: I have a serious fear of commitment. It doesn’t matter if it is a relationship, a friendship, a job placement, a volunteer position, a trip, whatever. I don’t like the idea of committing to one thing because whenever I do, I always have a fear that it won’t be good enough, or that I settled for something less, or that I am not well-suited for it. My fear of commitment is directly connected to my fear of being let down. I am currently too scared to send in my resume for different volunteer organizations even though I know that I need the experience. I don’t want to be tied down to something that isn’t perfect, or right, for me. However I will never know if it’s right for me unless I try but I can hardly even make myself do that. Sometimes I would rather just wonder ‘What if?’ instead of actually committing to something with the possibility of failing.
