Not every single person is happy. But many of them stand on their own way.
Most people yearn for love – and yet there many who repeatedly fail in their relationships and go as permanent singles through life. They want closeness, but if it is there, it’s too much. The psychotherapist “Stefanie Steel” has addressed this phenomenon in her book ” Jein” (Yes and no) and has dealt with bonding fears and their causes.
In four chapters she describes the emotional ups and downs of people who suffer from commitment issues. It is important to recognize the fear of commitment as a “real” fear – and to investigate its roots.
It is characteristic of people with fear of commitment that the desire for a partnership does not overcome the fear of failure in the relationship. In almost all commitment fearers, low self -esteem is to blame for their misery – the fear of not satisfying their partner and then be left alone again.
