Think of your comfort zone as a box that keeps you safe, in the same way that a box such as a house can keep a person safe from the outside world. Your house has all the familiar people, things, and situations that make you feel at home and secure. As does the box that is your comfort zone, which holds the same secure ideals. Your comfort zone holds the boundaries within your mind that tell you what is safe and comfortable. When a person or situation that is unfamiliar tries to step in your comfort zone, you put up an alarm or red flag. The red flag is your mind saying that this is not alright and this needs fixed. The comfort zone we keep is a box that has many limits, and with the many limits there will be lots of alarms going of when something doesn't fit in the box. When someone has these set limits to their comfort zone they can miss out on the freedom of having new experiences, opening themselves up to deeping their relationships, and finding their true soul. No progress will ever be made if you stay in your comfort zone, and don't open up to the freedom of having limitless possibilities. When the comfort zone is gone, the only thing left is the confidence to try to be your best possible self with the limitless possibilities that lay in front of you.
