The challenge with our comfort zones is that they are just too comfortable.
Because somehow in our minds we have developed a belief that if we just stay in the known neurotic dysfunction of our habits and patterns everything will be a-okay.
But of course this isn’t true. The suffering still finds us even though we are trying very hard to hide from it in the illusion of denial.
No one likes having it pointed out to them where they are avoiding, denying, protecting or just trying to keep everything together, even as it is disintegrating around them.In my work people come to me for help.
There was a time in my life when it pained me to realize I wasn’t perfect. As a naive 20-year-old, somehow I thought that this was what I was supposed to be —perfect. And by perfect I mean someone who did everything right, never made a mistake and was loved by everyone.
