Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable
Finally, you’ll have to familiarize yourself with being uncomfortable! Because even both the steps above, you might still be feeling uncomfortable. This is true especially when the problem isn’t solved or the other people involved are still upset, frustrated, or put off.
Here’s what you have to remember:
Uncomfortable does not equal bad or dangerous
It is okay for things to be uncomfortable.
The sooner we learn this and embrace it, the sooner we can begin to let go of the anxieties that come up inside of us.
This practice is one that requires a ton of self talk, tons of self compassion, and honestly, a lot of practice. It takes time to recognize when something is going on for yourself or for others- especially when you’ve been conditioned to take on the role of making everything better.
