I have a close friend who has an anxiety disorder. His comfort zone is unfortunately small because he shrinks back from a world that can easily overpower him. Sometimes I get frustrated with his small perceptions of the world. I see how easy it would be for him to step just a little further out and reach for more.
But – then I have to admit that I can identify with him. There are hundreds of projects and achievements that lay outside my grasp. It is not because I can’t carry them…it is because I have trouble letting go of what I have so that I can reach out and embrace them.
I think that “letting go” should be easier for him…but then I discover that “letting go” is hard for me, too. When I am inside my comfort zone, I know how to handle the mess.
But…I want more for my life. I want to grow. I want to live bigger.
How about you? Can you let go and tackle a bigger project?
Thanks for listening.
