Commitment Issues

No, this is not what you think it is

They say that admitting is the first step to recovery. This doesn’t always make sense to me but here goes: I admit that I have commitment issues. Yes, I’m ashamed of labeling myself as a person with a thousand ideas and starts things without finishing anything.

Before I go on, let me clarify one thing. No, this isn’t what you think it is. I’m not talking about relationships—romantic or otherwise. I’m talking about things that I want to do in life. One minute, I’m passionate about writing, the next I find myself staring blankly at x number of stories that I’ve started and forgotten.

This morning I told myself that I would continue working on this story that I started a few days back, but I got lazy again. The story is about the idea of being too comfortable and the protagonist’s realization that comfort isn’t always a good thing. But alas, the laziness has taken over and won. Lazy-ass - 99, Melody - 0.
