I’ve been thinking about this for a while: are you really happy or just really comfortable?
Just like everyone else I have my moments. I feel happy, I feel sad, I feel in-between. But lately I’ve been feeling happier. I smile more, I joke around more, could it be that being back home has brought back the good old memories and the good old feelings? Feelings of comfort, peacefulness and just pure and simple calmness?
Are you really Happy or just really Comfortable?
I’d like to think that I’ve found the secret to happiness, but unfortunately I’m not there yet.
Meanwhile I’ll take these moments of bliss that I can spend with my family and friends back home and keep all the other responsibilities I have in a drawer locked in my mind and on the other side of the ocean.
Sometimes being comfortable is all you really need to get through a hard time. I find myself in a good place at the moment and I believe that comfort comes with serenity in this case.
Sometimes I think I’d like for it to stay like this forever, just stuck in this moment and with these emotions, and right after these thoughts, I start to think that there must be something else, something better waiting behind a corner that will bring me to a true state of happiness.
Doesn’t that sound selfish? Yes it does.
How do you know if you’re truly happy or just comfortable?
When change takes place and leaving your comfort zone doesn’t scare you anymore, that might be a good first step.
Personally, I don’t want things to change at the moment, I’m in a comfortable state of in-between. I’m trying to focus on myself and on my career and goals and that’s all. Comfort is what I seek and I’d like to keep it this way for just a little longer.
