Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. – Neale Donald Walsch
What makes you feel uncomfortable? Have you ever asked yourself why?
If I ever feel annoyed or uncomfortable with the behavior of someone around me. For eg; Someone who speaks their mind freely and has no trouble expressing how they feel, instead of saying, “That really annoys me,” I ask myself a question.
“Do I feel comfortable speaking the truth to others?” “Do I feel free to say what I am feeling?”
I always find the answer is “No.” If I feel uncomfortable with someone’s behavior, then I need to ask “What is uncomfortable in me?
It might be you feel uncomfortable with your body image, your ability to express how your feel, a belief that you are not strong enough or good enough. When we feel uncomfortable living our authentic self, our outer world is reflecting this belief.
So how can we change this? At first, there is obvious discomfort as we leave our old behaviors and thinking, but with practice living and expressing our authentic self, we will find deep peace and comfort in being ourselves.
Find what is uncomfortable within and let the truth change this old story.
You will be amazed how everyone around you seems different, and that life becomes a lot more comfortable.

Thank you lovely Eliza 💚
Profound words of truth and reality so well written. Loved the daring picture too when you get out of your comfort zone.
Thank you so much. The picture reflected how I feel sometimes out of my comfort zone! 💚
Yes absolutely could feel that. Welcome dear.
Something I very much needed to hear at the moment, Karen. Thank you. 💡💡
Happy to share a lightbulb moment with you Lori. Have a great week 💚
Love it Karen 💛 One of my favorite mantras is “growth never happens in the comfortable”.
Unfortunately it’s so true! Thank you Val. Have a great week 😀💚
Beautifully expressed. I loved it.
Here is my take on comfort zone for you to read… 😊
Wise words, Karen. I’ve had a little bit of practice in that lately. Yes, uncomfortable.
Yes very uncomfortable at times! It’s an understanding for life. Thank you Helen 💕
A great post. I have always believed that our greatest growth comes when we move towards the things that scare us or make us uncomfortable. I am going to use the Walsch quote for my next quote for public speakers.
Thank you for the post.
Great. It’s a life practice, but worth the results. Thanks John. 😀
Indeed. And not always easy.
Oh, brilliant! I am realizing already how flipping it to a question to myself points out what I need to delve into.
Yes that’s it! instead of the usual, which is to delve into the person who annoys us. Happy self-delving my friend 👍💕
There’s a fine line to too much discomfort. 😀
Well I find there’s only discomfort, when I don’t believe that living authentically is enough. Once I’m comfortable living this truth, life becomes comfortable. Make sense? 😀
