Do Others, Also, Too Often Seek Comfort Rather Than Change Or Challenge?
I think I am way too much a creature of comfort to suit me. I promise myself again and again I will try something new, but I almost always revert to something easier and more familiar rather than challenge myself. Yet, when I do challenge myself a bit, I am almost always the better for it. A therapist once told me people always strive for happiness. Is happiness all too often what is comfortable or familiar? It seems I can push myself to do something different once or twice; but if it isn't particuarly an easy or comfortable fit, I shy away from repeating it. Yet I know inside that ease and and familiarity (hence relative comfort) will come with repetition and experience. I think growth at any age and any time is a boon - perhaps, as with anything worth having, it does not and should be too easy. I would be interested to hear from others with similar experiences and would to hear about solutions to "getting over the comfort hump".
