I have always respected the game. And in every case, the game will still be played. HOWEVER, you don’t have to play. And you surely can’t play the game expecting anything other than games to be played. If you don’t want steady love and commitment, don’t find or stay in situations where steady love and commitment are the rules of engagement. Although the attachment may be what you desire, you enter a state of principle violation when you willfully neglect to exchange due harvest for the caliber of love you're reaping.
