Being Forced Out of Your Comfort Zone

By Leslie Fineberg on June 5, 2013

As life changes, challenges and difficulties occur. We all dislike being forced out of our comfort zones. Life brings unexpected, unwelcomed events our way. According to clinical psychologist, relationship expert, and author, Dr. Carmen Harra of The Huffington Post, we are all creatures of habit, but we also are equipped with unbelievable resilience, and we all have a built-in capacity to adapt to change.

Whether you are forced out of your comfort zone by a complex, emotional divorce, the loss of a job, or the sudden loss of a loved one, change causes uncertainty — a fear of the unknown. The following advice is offered by Dr. Harra and the Chicago family law attorneys at Nottage and Ward:

  • Be prepared in advance for change that is likely to occur.
  • Change your way of thinking in order to adapt to your challenges. Maintain the right attitude.
  • Try to understand that there is a greater reason behind the change that you may only understand later on. Trust that the change that is occurring is for a higher good.
  • Look forward to something better. After a difficult divorce, a relationship is over, but you may have not been treated as you deserved to be. Now you have the chance to move on and find the right person for you.
  • Allow productivity to help you through.
  • Allow time for healing. With the passage of time things will get easier.
  • Focus toward the future.

Your comfort zone is somewhere inside yourself. Realize that leaving your comfort zone is a vital part of improving life.
