I just came across this article...I highly recommend everyone read it.

"The concept? 'Masochistic equilibrium.'
When I first heard these words, I immediately wondered what they meant. I found out they represent a truly important psychological theory—one which clearly explains how and why sometimes a person’s comfort zone might actually be to stay in discomfort."

I can understand that concept,
I've been there before, but never for long.

This is more or less what i just realized during my therapy session last week. Still having issues processing it, but it is quite true.
Thanks for sharing this.
