I think in all of this, I see a common theme of disconnection.
Disconnection from the truths about commitment and marriage (and perhaps, the deeper truths about yourself and the person you intend to marry); disconnection from the reality of wealth (which to me, seems more of a burden than a luxury); and disconnection from the self (in the sense that people may often avoid doing the things they need and/or love to do in search of something…other. What that other is, I’ve still yet to figure out as a constant procrastinator.)
An honest question to ask here is: how do we find real connection to the things that attract us in life? And by connection, I suppose I mean something that connects to you in a deep and meaningful way, as opposed to something fleeting and ephemeral. An easy question to ask, but very difficult to answer.
