Commitment Phobia: A Fear Younger Generations Face

A problem that our generation faces.

Commitment Phobia: A Fear Younger Generations Face

I think the problem with a lot of people my age is that they deal with the concept of commitment, and they find that very idea to be frightening. And I think it also destroys a lot of relationships. Whether that be because people are afraid to commit to another person or because they are pressured into committing to one person.

I don't think commitment only scares young people, but people ranging from all different age groups see the idea of commitment as a big and scary idea. But I believe that if it is the right person your fears of committing to them won't be there. I think if you even have the slightest doubt about staying loyal to someone you shouldn't go through with it.

I think it is especially scary for younger people to commit because of their age. They are fearful of choosing to be with someone at such a young age might hinder future relationships or that they might miss out on other "fun" experiences with a multitude of people. And I think if you're not ready or if you think you're too young to make a commitment to someone don't do it. Monogamy isn't for anyone, and lying to yourself won't get you anywhere and it will end up hurting a lot of people.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
