I often hear people tells me to break out from my comfort zone or I am already in my comfort zone and that’s why I do not want to move on. What does comfort zone really means? Am I really in my comfort zone?
According to Wikipedia comfort zone is “psychological state in which things feel familiar to a person and they are at ease and (perceive they are) in control of their environment, experiencing low levels of anxiety and stress”. So am I really at that psychological state now? Well in my personal life I surely am but in my career I have never feel in control. Well, I am comfortable with the working environment and the people around it but I do not feel like I am in control. I don’t think I will have problem fitting in to any of new environment as I have done a lot of times before this too.
So no! I am still not in my comfort zone. There is still so many things to learn or overcome but luckily for me this place where I am now allow me to do it. This is the very reason why I started this writing/article/piece or whatever it is. To overcome my fear or come out from my comfort zone about writing what is in my mind available to public to judge my writing.
There you go my first publicly available piece to express something that has been lingering in my head.
