Interest Vs Commitment

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” Kenneth Blanchard

Inspired by Evan’s post, it dawned on me that while someone may show interest in me, this does not always determine commitment.

It explains why people fall off the map.

Why interest lost is confused with commitment withheld.

Sure, most start with an interest before it leads to commitment, but such laissez-faire attitudes are what heartbreak make when we give others a greater power to make us happy than we do for ourselves.

I’m committed to my self-care, ensuring I’m well treated, and removing barriers to self-respect. I’m not interested in anything less than worthy. It’s time to listen to myself, and pay attention when tracks are derailed. It means its time to set things straight.
