'Comfort zone' What a load of shit
Heard it before, heard it again.
“I just don’t feel comfortable doing that yet.”
Whether it be going into the free weights section.
Finally using the squat rack when there’s another man in the gym.
Whether it be pulling your tupperware out your bag at work and worrying about the 'donut a day keeps the doctor away' office guys glancing a judging eye at you across your office work space.
Or even getting your kit off at the beach or getting frisky with a loved one, or stranger.
People have this idea of it being ‘out their comfort zone’.
Well I’m afraid your comfort zone is a fabrication.
You made it up, you set the boundaries, you made the rules.
For those of you familiar with Physics you have matter and non matter.
Comfort zones are non matter.
When you can finally come to terms with it not existing you’d be surprised what you can get up to.
You’re literally just making shit up in your head so you don’t have to be uncomfortable.
I had severe anxiety for 10 years so I know every excuse under the sun. I forced myself into situations where I felt unbelievable uncomfortable.
Turns out it was actually fine.
So think about it is what you’re putting off right now.
Whether it be:
– Getting help in the gym
– Eventually leaving the women’s only area
– Learning how to amend your diet
– Breaking up with a partner you don’t actually have any feelings for
– Asking for a payrise
– Telling your boss they’re a bell end and you’re not happy with your work load - yes you Tayler!
My advice for you is simple:
Stop being a moron, you made up your comfort zone, get over it and get on with it.
Or stay where you’re at now forever, up to you.
