You are ready to commit yourself to someone, but that someone better be you. There is no point in giving up on your own ideals and goals in life for anyone else, especially not when middle grounds can be found so that true balance can be established. Sacrifice only disturbs the waters and makes balance impossible. To do what you feel like doing, you must first see where you stand without interference of other people. Set boundaries, stand alone for as long as necessary, and asses your strengths and weaknesses realistically.
