Ben, love these thoughts of yours, “Once you’ve passed your point of no return, you’ve fully bought into your own vision. You’re committed. Your role, and thus identity, change. You’ve removed alternatives that were nothing more than distractions anyways. You’ve forced your own hand and now must move in the direction you want to go. You’re all in”.
This is true about success in life and also relationships. Most of us stay in the shallow and never risk vulnerability. Rarely as you say, “You’re all in”.
