What is the best way to get comfortable with being uncomfortable?
The answer is simple, but it takes work. It would help if you allowed yourself to live in the moment until it feels familiar and safe.
When we feel good, our emotions tend to trump our logic. We may find ourselves doing unhealthy things or making decisions that aren't in our best interest because our emotions get the best of us.
For us to grow as people, we need to push through these moments of discomfort and come out on the other side feeling better than ever before.
I love how the human body can adapt and change itself so that it can function better in its environment. When you're working out and your muscles start to burn, your brain releases endorphins that make you feel good about being uncomfortable. And you're actually getting stronger!
So what does this have to do with life? Well, we're all constantly being pushed into new situations and learning new things—which means we're always going to be uncomfortable. Whether it's a new job, a new relationship, or moving across the country, it's important not just for our physical well-being but also for our emotional well-being that we embrace uncertainty and discomfort. It's only by pushing through those moments that we grow as individuals—and ultimately become stronger people who can handle whatever comes next.
Emotions are temporary—they come and go as they please. The only permanent thing is how you react to them in any given situation.
