What is it ? why is it so dangerous?
The comfort zone refers to a moment in our lives where we feel secure comfortable and we dont want to make any changes since we feel satisfied with having our basic needs covered, we have a routine and we do the same activities in the same schedule.
It is very quiet to be in the comfort zone because we avoid any risk, dangerous situations or facing any fear or situation that could make us feel anxiety.
We are not talking just about a safe place but a psychological state as well, this mental state of feeling secure and comfortable even though its good to feel like that, some people have taken this state as an excuse for not growing as a person or professionally, not even to improve or to be happy doing what they really want, theyre just being simple observers of their own life.
