Your discomfort has value within it…

Your discomfort has value within it…” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi

We tend to place a great value on comfort, but there can also be great value in discomfort. There can also be great value in discomfort because when growth happens, one of the things that often happens along with growth is the sensation of discomfort.

Times of comfort are so enjoyable but those times don’t necessarily make us want to explore other parts of ourselves. They don’t make us want to see what else is there within ourselves, and to seek to discover the parts of us that are patiently waiting to express themselves.

In times of comfort, we can get too busy with enjoying the comfort we have. And there is nothing wrong with enjoying comfort, because that is what comfort is meant for. Comfort is meant to be relaxed into and to be enjoyed.

But when you do find yourself in a time of discomfort, since those are the times when your ground is more soft and fertile to be dug into, and for seeds to be planted within you; why not cherish the times when you aren’t comfortable seeing as those are the times that can lead you to a deeper sense of comfort than you have previously experienced?

There is another reason why the people of old had a saying that all that glitters is not gold. By their statement, they were also referring to the times that aren’t comfortable. They were providing an assurance that, even if your present life situation isn’t glittering and comfortable; you could still very well be on your way to finding an even deeper wealth within yourself.

About the Author:  My name is Babajide Faseyi.  I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19.  In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search.  I read voraciously.  After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now.  And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.  The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are – and
