Sojourner, pack your bags. You will not return to your comfort zones. A comfort zone is a mental conception that is often subconscious and associated with safety and security. One's comfort zones or comfortable boundaries are cultivated over time. The idea of a comfort zone or safe space is projected onto people, places, and things. For example, some people refuse to try new hairstyles, new foods, new venues, new relationships, and new techniques because they “already” have the “sure thing” that works well every time. A comfort zone is neither good nor bad unless it is attached to an unhealthy dynamic. In general, comfort zones are neutral until one chooses to stretch and to grow. Comfort zones can become detrimental when one’s life is dictated by imagined threats, ignorance, and dangers instead of real facts and your own unrealized potential.
