    We are obligated to our parents because they have taken care of us for our lives so we have to listen to them. My mom has been the best parent, therefore I am committed to her because she took care of me.

    Obligation is an act of course of action to which a person is morally or legally bound, a duty or commitment. I am obligation to my parents because they work hard everyday and that made me feel I should do the same in school.
    Commitment is the act of committing or the state of being committed.I am commitment to be responsible at school,home,and pretty much everywhere.

    I am obligated to my mom because she has been there for me and always supported me in whatever I wanted to do. She has put a roof over my head and has put food in my stomach. She is my motivation to succeed in life.

    obligation is something that you have to do even if you don t want to do it and commitment is something that you do it if you want.

    Obligation is when you do something by force or/& its mandatory & commitiment is when you do something because you want to pursue in it by chose. Im obligated to my mother because she is my guardian, I can’t possibly do everything by myself & she has done everything for me since birth, she deserves nothing but the best from me.

    An obligation is usually imposed upon by someone else, usually a boss or someone of higher authority. There usually isn’t a choice to whether or not the thing gets done. A commitment is when someone willfully chooses to be somewhere or do something, usually for the good of someone else.

    An obligation is a duty or responsibility, something you are expected to do for morally or legally binding reasons. A commitment, however, is a dedication. A commitment is something you desire to do or cannot stop.

    When People are obligated to do something, I Feel as if people lose the drive, motivation and real purpose to go through with the task. When approaching an obligation differently, to the person performing the task, it becomes Commitment.

    Obligation means a person is morally or legally bound to do something. Commitment means the act of being dedicated. We are obligated to follow the rules that the school implants in us. We are obligated to do so because we are basically forced or we will be punished for our actions. But we are commited to follow the rules that our parents give us to live in the household through respect.

    A commitment is something someone has dedicated themselves to while an obligation is something you are forced to do and do not have a choice to be committed to this or not.

    Although in life we are obligated to do lots of things, it’s the commiment that makes us fully complete those things.

    Obligation is something you have to do.
    Commitment is being committed to something or someone, and they have to do something for them. I think if you have an obligation then you must do it, and if you are in a commitment then you have to do that also. It’s really up to what you really want to do more.

    We are obligated to the people who we deem we should be obligated to. We are only obligated to these people because we think we should be. If you look at it in this point of view you would technically be able to choose whether or not you want to be obligated to others.

    I think I am obligated to do whatever my parents may tell me to, considering they are obligated to keep their roof over my head, I should do something for them in return. I’m obligated to show up to school because it is against the law, and my father would have my head on a stick if I didn’t.

    We are obligated to West Jefferson rules and wear uniforms and i.d everyday. We are forced to wear the uniforms and identification card and we can’t do nothing about it. If we don’t wear it, then we can’t enter school and get our education.

    I made a commitment to get straight A’s this year and not get anything lower than a B. If i can help it. If I get straight A’s throughout the whole year, then I will get a brand new car for the summer.

    The people the you are obligated to are the people outside your close family. They are the people you have the less respect for. When you are commitment to someone that means you have to do it cause its like a commitment when you get married

    An obligation is a responsibility, something you are expected to do. I feel that i’m obligated to my parents to be a good person because that’s how they raised me. I feel i’m obligated to be a good friend to those that have been good friends to me.
