Why do we always seek comfort?

The question is rhetorical. Because it is comfortable.

It’s ironic though, because the more we seek out to be ‘comfortable’ the harder it becomes to achieve comfort. In fact, I would argue the only way to truly be comfortable is to ensure that we also seek out being uncomfortable.

That means, speaking up, meeting someone new, doing that workout, learning something hard.

The only way to true comfort is through discomfort.
