In a split second we can go from comfortable to uncomfortable.
In Law School the teaching method involves being called on to discuss the case and having to speak of it out loud in front of the class. I got called on and had zero clue what the case was on and awkwardly said, “uhh I don’t know”.
Not a good look. Not a good feeling.
I went from feeling calm and cool to antsy and awkward.
In life we like to think we will reach a state of being that we will always be comfortable. People often say I cannot wait to get that job so I can be comfortable.
Comfortable will always be relative and you will never be completely comfortable in all aspects of life.
The only thing we can do is try to be more comfortable being uncomfortable.
When we are in these moments we need to….
Slow down. Acknowledge. Lessen the effects/damages to the best of our ability. Move on.
That’s what I’m telling myself at least.
