Comfort is overrated.
Comfort causes us to not appreciate what is around us. If we have always lived in a big house in a nice neighborhood, we don’t know any differently.
Our standards are created only by what we know and what we are shown.
But life and learning and growing happens in the contrast.
Plop us in a neighborhood living under the poverty line and we will see what we have. It will make us more appreciative. It will make us want to find solutions.
Get out of your fishbowl. See, breathe and feel the contrast.
