Being Comfortable With The Way Things Are

By Pamela J. Wells

Why do we replace the things that we want to do, that is our passion, that improves our lives—with other things—with distractions? Are we escaping from ourselves and our life? Are we comfortable with our misery? Are we comfortable with our pain? Are we comfortable with our suffering. Are we comfortable with our insecurities? Are we comfortable with our lives the way that they are and is it easier to remain in that comfort? Are we comfortable with complaining? Are we comfortable with being unhappy? We want to be happy, but we settle for unhappiness, for comfort, as though it is our identity. Do we let others opinions of us shape our identity that we have come to believe is who we are, so we give up on ourselves, we give up on life?

What do you tell yourself that keeps you immobile and keeps your life stagnate? Do you tell yourself that you’re not good enough, that you’re a failure? You have the opportunity to “See” your thoughts and how destructive they are and change them to positive ones. You have the opportunity to shakeup your comfort zone and start living your life the way that you truly want to live it.
