It’s something the modern world, especially here in the west, affords you.
The comfort of a hot meal, a warm bed, books to read, a TV to watch and so much more.
These things are so common you don’t even think about them day to day.
You are fortunate.
Sadly, however, comfort lulls you to sleep.
It takes your eyes off important things and limits your view.
Comfort so often constructs the prison in which you gladly reside. See Huxley.
If only you could grasp this one simple truth: comfort is not always your friend.
He may seem polite and an easy companion, but that’s only while he fastens the noose around your neck.
Discomfort on the on hand remains a faithful friend.
He pushes you to think, to challenge, to grow.
You don’t need to be protected from discomfort. You need to seek it out.
Seek out people, situations, conversations, and experiences that make you uncomfortable.
All the growth and change you seek is on the other side of those uncomfortable things.
