Happiness comes in waves
Let's talk about being uncomfortable, I'm not talking about the kind of uncomfortable that is telling you there's something wrong. I'm talking about the kind of uncomfortable you feel after making a decision or going down a path. The kind of discomfort that comes with life choices, difficult conversations, endings and new beginnings.
Now, what does being uncomfortable mean?
It means that there is something you are supposed to pay attention to. There is some lesson or understanding you should have. If you are uncomfortable about something that has happened, ask yourself, "what can I do to make myself comfortable?" Maybe you need to clarify, or ask for what you need, maybe you need to set some clear boundaries, voice an opinion or concern.
When you are uncomfortable with something there is a lesson to be learned. Did you need to speak up? Take up more space? Ask for what you need? Voice a concern? Set up a boundary? Do your morals and values need to be taken into concern?
When you feel discomfort with a situation ask yourself these questions and really think about the answers. Decide what you need and want from the situation, what is your discomfort teaching you about yourself? Remember, we cannot control what others do or don't do, we can only control how we show up, what we bring to the table and how we advocate our own needs.
This week I want to encourage you to take a look at a situation that is giving you discomfort and examine the reason behind it. What small step can you take to make yourself more comfortable with the situation? As always, if you need help working through these questions feel free to reach out to me for a coaching session, I would be more than happy to help!
