I don't think it's only just the fact of 'obligating' to people I care about - but just to people and how life is within them, generally. I've accepted just about everything that was labeled and thrown at me. I know what my limits are. Some were hard pills to swallow while others it may not phase me so much. But whenever I can be proven otherwise, it can only last for so long. I guess in some sense it really did nip me in the bud and that looking for some good outcome out of it would give the likelihood of some rapture happening beforehand.
I've watched a documentary/talk not long ago and kept replaying about how one guy referenced the Greek mythology story of Pandora's Box, and that once it was opened it caused the evils and sickness to unleash to mankind . The last thing that came out of it was hope. The last thing the guy asked, "what happens when you find out that hope isn't in there?" It got pretty deep. Hope underlies all else that happens, which also can be counterproductive since it deceives long enough where mankind can only handle so much and may never find that underlying answer that they want or need. The outcome you may only want in reference to hope just might not happen for everyone...
