Severe commitment/entrapment issues-Can anyone else relate to this and how do you deal with it?
I am not talking about just in regards to relationships, but even to not being able to sign a long-term lease to live somewhere, make an ADVANCE reservation for a plane-even somewhere I want to go, make plans to get together with friends, make advance appointments for medical treatment. This society runs on schedules, advanced planning, signing leases, etc. and I freeze into paralysis with anxiety of being locked in to anything! Yes, that includes work (I freelance). I only can bear one day at a time. This is serious and I can't afford a therapist (which would require an advance appointment and money), so I would appreciate any help in this.

Honey, you need help whether you want to or can afford it. You can't be successful if you can't commit. Talk to a therapist.

I can relate to it. You have a great issue to look into and someone to confirm your thoughts about such an issue. I just had a breakthrough tonight. Please contact me if you want to discuss further....whatever is holding you back, or tingling in the back of your mind. :-)

commitment is what makes ppl successful. And as the first lady said, you need help whether you can afford it or not. Without commitment nothing is possible.

Learn about how the law of attraction works and you will solve all your problems. Learn to focus on how you want things to be in your life. Avoid using your imagination for negative results.

To me, all of these types of issues stem from a person not trusting themselves or believing in themselves. Why don't you trust or believe in yourself to this extent??????????? Everyone at one time or another has or have had doubts about choices and decisions they make, their actions, plans etc etc etc. Allowing... More
