The Fear of Commitment
I’ve never seen it in real life, but in Vegas movies I often see people going “All In” with their final bet. They are so sure they’ve got a winning hand, they’re willing to risk everything they have – at least everything on the table – for that hope. Going “All In” can be a frightening proposition and people get dinged for their inability to make that kind of a commitment on a regular basis. And yet life seems to demand that we go “All In” for the things that are most important to us – but the fear of commitment can be worse than the fears of the bumps in the night coming from the bedroom closet.
