My blog title happens to be the discussion. I chose this title, because it appealed me that time (late 2006). Partly it was inspired by Steve Waugh’s autobiography and the other part for the feelings I sensed that time. Four years hence, I feel I can define the comfort zone and what it means to be out of it.
It is definitely not trying or imagining the surroundings around us to be comfortable. It is great if surroundings can look better but what about us?

We ask a lot of questions to the outer world, but do we have time to speak to ourselves? Maybe we don’t want to address our real needs; as it requires taking a leap where we have not been before. And this fear of unknown makes us seek comfort in the external world rather than our internal world.

Living under an illusion is our favourite past time, because we don’t want changes or accept changes.

We are in general quite optimistic about change, but the cynic in us won’t allow accepting it. We succumb to the pressures and it is not that pressure is bad, it’s just that, is it worth taking on the pressures at the sake of losing our identity? Which brings us to the topic of our identity? It is a simple process of being self-aware and being close to it from time to time.
We generally not notice this internal pressure because of our illusion. We choose to remain in the dark because of fear; the light of awareness might blind us instead of believing, the awareness torch shall lead us to the path where we belong.
It is a matter of choice and I personally believe, one can share, discuss about these things because no matter what, eventually it is the personal effort that decides the fate for an individual.

I can say it is better not to seek comfort externally. If we are not comfortable with ourselves (inner self) then we will never be comfortable.

What makes us comfortable? Identifying what we truly want and working towards it. It is a journey and for that trusting one’s intuition at all times serves the fuel to propel ourselves on the road to our purpose.

Out of comfort zone doesn’t mean we have to be uncomfortable inside. If we do, first we need to address that immediately. And once we find ourselves comfortable, we can always give and do things in a better way, in fact adjust and also change with greater spirits.

  1. I do agree with you Rajan… There are ways to interpret it, but many people take it as a forced majeure. Getting some1 out of his/her comfort zone means putting urself in danger zone, coz u will be held responsible for the unintentional self created pain one feel….
