This month was all about commitments on Man Repeller. Making them, breaking them, philosophically unpacking them…basically all the stuff we do at 2 a.m. when we are feeling particularly vulnerable. Like I mentioned in this month’s writers club prompt (what’s a commitment you regret making?), commitment, as a concept, is kind of fraught these days. A lot of us are flailing at the intersection of having too much information, too much distraction and a whole bunch of agency we can’t be trusted to wield (I ate half a pint of ice cream to “soothe my sore throat” last night). So our desire (or perhaps inability) to make choices we can really throw our weight behind is a deep well worth exploring. But like, safely. (Wells scare me, I’ve seen The Ring.)
Anyway, take a scroll down short-term memory lane below and read everything we wrote this month about commitment. ‘Til the end of this story do we part.
