Moving Out of Your Comfort Zone Safely

  • Moving out of your comfort zone

At Startpoint Counselling, we understand that moving out of your comfort zone is never easy as it feels unsafe and in general “Yuk”.

To achieve the things that you want in your relationship or your personal life, you will need to move out of your present comfort zone and make some changes.

Moving out of your comfort zone

Moving out of your comfort zone in order to make changes is attractive to many people. They want to make changes to their personal lives, how things are happening at work, how they react to things, and what they’re achieving in their lives.

They want to make changes in their relationships, including the quality of their relationships, what they get back out of their relationships.

It is a great thing that you have those aspirations. However, when we try to make these changes, it gets uncomfortable.

Matter of fact as you move outside of where you are at the moment, it can feel quite yuck. There’s no certainty. Fears come up about what you’re doing.

The Fear of Moving out of your comfort zone

You just feel out of your element, you feel overwhelmed, and you want to go back into your comfort zone. And we call it a comfort zone for a reason. It’s a comfort zone because it feels comfortable or more accurately a familiar zone.

Obviously, it’s not 100% comfortable because we wouldn’t be trying to move outside of it. There are certain elements about it that we like but we also aspire to certain things that we don’t currently have.

The thing that makes this the familiar zone is its predictability. We know that if we do a certain thing, then we get a certain result. So that predictability and certainty are comfortable.

As we move outside of this familiar zone, we move into an area that is unpredictable. It is unpredictable because we don’t understand the rules, we don’t understand how things work.

The rules from our familiar zone don’t seem to apply here. So the tension that builds up tries to drive us back into our familiar zone.

The Guide to Moving out of your comfort zone

What you really need as you move out of your familiar zone is a guide, someone who knows the rules, someone who can take you to where you want to go. Someone who can help you achieve what you want.

If you need a guide, someone who knows the rules, someone who can help you achieve your dreams look no further than Start Point Counselling.
