Short: There's something wrong with being comfortable

Being comfortable shouldn't be a bad thing. When people think about being comfortable, it's usually associated with positive aspects. But let's be real: we want to be comfortable because we want things to be a certain way in the easiest, possible manner and that's not good. The problem is that people don't realize they're being comfortable. There's often a progression and process on how things tend to work. Nothing ever churns by itself. For the people who take action, it's usually a passion that ignites it. For the people who don't, it's usually a lack of passion. Being comfortable with something is staying passive on something you associate yourself with as a passion or love. Needless to say, it's a hypocritical thing to claim something as a priority but only to throw it aside because of comfort.

When people become comfortable, there's an assumption that things will go  as they are. It harbors an atmosphere of disrespect for the people who actually take action. The result is a maddening presumption that fruit comes without a harvest and goals are achievable without a vision. It's okay to feel at ease with people, as long as there's still a mutual respect and understanding for certain things that go beyond the human desire to be comfortable. Inevitably, comfort reaches a point where there's an incorrect assumption that certain delicate boundaries can be crossed.

Sometimes, it's necessary to feel a little annoyed at things and bored at things. The thing is, you can't use comfort as an excuse to get out of these obligations. You see - stepping outside of a comfort zone spurs progress and that's what ultimately matters. I don't think comfort is a bad thing when taken with an acute sense of awareness. Otherwise, it's simply insane to live through a repetition of expecting things without doing things.
