Commitments to people––family, friends, lovers, strangers––take work.  (Though most things in life worth a damn take work.)   Are we always in a position where we can put in this kind of sweat equity?  No.  So choose wisely to whom you’re going to give your time and attention.  A good rule might be to examine how much of yourself you want to give to the person in question.

Why am I thinking about this stuff now?  I find I get more thinky in September. And, plus, autumn is traditionally the time of year when Koreans engage and experience a collective melancholia as they ponder the meaning of life.  (Yes, I know everyone ponders the meaning of life, but it really is a national past time in Korea.  Really.  Go check it out for yourself.)
