To me poly is all about commitment. I have committed to my partners and they to me. Commitment means freedom for me as I have people who love me and will support me in my life yet I am free to be me and live my life as I see fit. Commitment does not equal being trapped and owned or succumbing to some form of cultural norm in terms of monogamy. It means that I don't float in a sea of people alone. It means I am not associated with people who have their own best interests in mind and care nothing of mine. Commitment breeds empathy and connection far more than anything I have ever known. Its the cement of the love I have for my partners, family and friends. Without it the foundation of everything in my life would eventually topple.
