In this episode, I dive deep into the subject of commitment. Not just in the sense of committed romantic relationships—but the fear of commitment to ourselves and our truth, extrapolating it to every area of your life. Your fear to commit to a dream, to a possibility, to a relationship, to your purpose, to a goal—all of these are the same process. Understanding what lies at the base of our fears of commitment can allow us to become more committed people, more disciplined, more discerning, and move forward and create things we never thought were possible but always desired.
I've learned so much on this journey, especially the importance of consistency and speaking my truth, even when it's challenging. So in this solo episode, I invite you to embrace discomfort, challenge your limits, and commit to your full potential. Change yourself, change the world.
One night during his divorce, Matthew Fray started a blog. He needed to figure out how his ex-wife went from the 18 year old college freshman who adored him to the angry woman who thought he was a jerk and left him. As he pieced together the story of his marriage and its end, Matthew began to realize a hard truth: even though he was a decent guy, he was a bad husband.
This week we’re diving further into the topic of commitment with a special episode straight from my Mine’d Liberated Love series with my love and partner, Kylie McBeath. Having recently gotten engaged, I wanted to share this conversation where we explore common fears around commitment and how to navigate what comes up for you as you explore deepening the agreements of your relationship.
I remember when I was afraid to get engaged in my twenties, someone told me I was just afraid of commitment. That as a man, it was normal. I wasn't supposed to run towards love, but rather just surrender — as if it was some sort of life sentence I would need to learn to tolerate. All of that couldn't have been more wrong. I wasn't afraid of commitment — I was afraid that love would hurt me. Join me this week as I explore my thoughts on commitment, marriage, getting feedback, having compassion for yourself and what it means to trust yourself in love.
