How to Deal With an Uncomfortable Situation?

We are creatures who like to what is comfortable and never face the challenge to do anything different. Many settle with a life that is easy.

But, there will be a time where you are thrown in an uncomfortable situation and you ask yourself why am I in this situation.

This happened to me yesterday. I was at a bar and granted I just have soda and water when I go, but it is good to get out of your comfort zone. My friend had said go over there and this was by some people I weren’t familiar with. I felt very uncomfortable in the situation and not because it was intimidating, but I didn’t want to be there at the moment. I thought I was an odd ball in the situation.

Then a voice came to me, endure the uncomfort in this situation and endure it and get through it. You will be in situation that tests your confidence and you have to challenge it to grow.

And when you face the situation and grow you can go for more challenging situations and you can grow your confidence. And you will face more.

The fact is we have to step out of our comfort zone. We may feel that feeling of uncomfort and we may give the impression that we are awkward in a position and our first impulse is to run away from that situation and because of it. And some people settle and never venture out to the unknown and I mean this in a relationship.

Sometimes we settle with situations in relationships that don’t serve us and are unhealthy because that is all we can get. But if you can take care of yourself if you are a guy or a woman the door and selection is open. Someone with low self esteem might not over come that comfort level unless they put work in themselves.

This is why men and women wind in bad relationships. Without any adventure and newness it get’s stale and you have to create interest, but that is another story.

The truth is with uncomfort we have to deal with it. Being in uncomfortable situations helps us deal with situations we might be. Work situations, love situations, family situations and any situations.

We go through life dealing with these situations and it tests us. And we deal with life the way it needs to. We embrace the fear in a situation and we deal with it. We will eventually feel better about ourselves dealing with our emotions and we live a stronger life because of it. We are willing to challenge life at face value and we are meant to live everyday the way it is truly meant to be.

And when it’s all said and done we have the passion to live life that we will endure and we will face any hurdle that approaches us.

It’s the life that is asked of us to live. We could live a boring life or we can’t take chances and that is the life I want to live.
