Don’t worry about the discomfort

“Don’t worry about the discomfort”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 happen 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 engage 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 the comfort we have, 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.

Blessings, Babajide

    I feel the same way NV. Someone tagged me in a post that said writers were being looked for to send spiritual articles to this awesome blog/website for consideration for guest contribution. And that’s how I was blessed with Andrea’s teachings and writings.

    I have recently learned this. When “discomfort” comes upon me, I try to focus on it – “Why am I feeling this way? What is the lesson here? Is this a repeating pattern or a new challenge?” It’s important for me to understand and FEEL these things to get through. One thing 2016 taught me was – to learn from my lessons. Being a “tough guy” doesn’t necessarily work for me, because if I didn’t learn, I will repeat it. I am tired of repeating lessons and do wish to move forward. I am grateful for this confirmation. Thank you. Many blessings <3

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts Sarah. I feel similarly! To me, discomfort always signals that I am moving in a direction I don’t want to go. <3
