Learning to be Comfortable with the Uncomfortable
Bear with me and my recent “emo” posts, friends. They are not cries for help or attention. They are life and I feel the need to capture and put these moments out there as a means of reconciling myself with certain realities.
The truth is I am generally a happy person. I count my blessings and try to find the positive in everything. On the flip side, I stifle feelings of discomfort until the dam breaks. It is tempting then to cling to what is comfortable, old patterns and habits, to keep from drowning, instead of letting go and having faith that I will not drown.
This is me facing myself, being with my discomfort and pain. The next step is letting go. Yes, there will be more pain and setbacks along the way, just as assuredly as there will be more happiness and successes. But the comfortable has become uncomfortable, and I refuse to keep myself resigned to a safe little ledge, letting life pass me by any longer.
