Whether it's a pair of jeans, an apartment, or Mr. Right-Now, we seem to want options one two and three at our disposal.. just incase. Non-committal means 'safe'. It means that no matter what we choose we have built ourselves an escape route if the need arrises for us to abort, run, or change our minds.

Clarity is recognizing our flaws and faults. For the longest time I thought it was just me, that I couldn't choose left or right to save my life. Committing to something rationally but fearlessly and maturely is not an easy task when the whole world would rather buy ten jeans for the price of one. Options have quickly overthrown dreams and I think that our biggest problem is that, in the fast paced world we live in, we aren't told to have goals, we're taught to fight through the crowds.

If we don't want to do something we avoid it. When we do want something, we wait for someone to give it to us. When we're uncomfortable, we dash out the back door. 

When will we learn to grow up?
