A friend had a post on her Instagram feed today that I’m totally stealing. It talked about the difference in being “interested” in something versus “committed” to something. It went like this.
Whether it’s a relationship, a healthier lifestyle, or even recovery from narcissistic abuse and codependency, isn’t this the truth?
When you are interested, you’ll do some. You’ll make an effort. You’ll try a certain extent until something happens that makes you change course or something more interesting comes along.
When you’re committed, you’re making that relationship happen if you can. You’re not letting the kids staying up later interfere with your workout or quarantine change your diet. And you’re definitely not letting an ex who blows past the boundaries you’ve identified keep you from being the best version of yourself; a whole version of yourself.
Be committed, friends. Have a great day!
