Comfort in Comfortability
Is comfortability in your current situation a bad thing?
This past week I’ve had countless conversations with my coworker, parents, family and friends about being comfortable. In life, it is important to progress however, it isn’t always a bad thing if you’re comfortable where you are in life. Comfortability meaning being in a position and being ok in that position.
After discussing this topic with multiple people I think it depends on where you are in life and how its affecting the people around you. As a college student I am comfortable but I do want change and at the same time I am comfortable where I am. I think as an adult with a family being comfortable is fine however if it’s affecting your home that’s when it becomes a problem. Such as falling short on bills and commitments.
All in all, I don’t think that being comfortable is a bad thing, but I do think it has its downsides.
As a young adult/college student being comfortable is fine. The worst thing to do is comparing yourself to others especially if you know that you’re comfortable. If you’re in a space where you’re comfortable don’t let what some else is doing make you ashamed or feel less than because everything happens at a certain time for everyone and that’s fine.
There’s a Youtuber that I attend college with. She is on top of her game. She has a high GPA, a YouTube channel, and two businesses. While watching her I begin to question myself about where I am and where I should be in life. I began to look at myself in a certain light because I wasn’t where she was. This is something that everyone should stir from because we all progress at our own pace. Never give up on the things you want to do because people around you are accomplishing it before you.
Comfortability isn’t always a bad thing. It is ok to be comfortable and content where you’re at in life. It is ok to see other people around you are doing many things and being booked 7 days a week without having any free time and that’s something that you can’t do or simply just don’t want to do.
All in all, we all move at our own pace and rate. We see people doing things that we aspire to do and end up comparing ourselves to that person. This will ultimately only put you in a low space because you’re seeing what they’re doing and questioning what you’re not doing. If you’re in a space where you’re not comparing yourself to others and just simply at a steady pace and happy in that pace that it also still fine. Don’t let anyone around you make you feel its not. There is such thing as comfort and comfortability and it’s not always bad.
