a place or situation where one feels safe or at ease and without stress.
“times when we must act beyond our comfort zones”
My therapist is always telling me to challenge my anxieties. “Challenge, challenge, challenge,” he says.
I’m working on this- it’s always a work in progress.
I think it mostly comes down to fear- why else would we be afraid to leave our safe little box?
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.”
H. P. Lovecraft
In my Weekly round up post, I mentioned how I made further steps towards my dreams, and I think to achieve anything we really want, it puts us out of our comfort zone a little bit. So I spent a lot of yesterday being nervous, preparing, planning my outfit, and probably obsessing a little too much.
So hopefully good news will come of it, for now- I wait.
Have you been challenging yourself lately?
