We all have that inner version of us that just wants to take things easy. That comfort-seeking, awkward, reserved, unambitious version of us.
What’s important, though, is to realise that it’s actually a good thing that we have this. This part of us has its use. In fact, without it, we might not even be alive.
It’s this little voice that has provided us with caution and safety throughout our lives. We should thank it for this.
Not only that, but we also get a lot of our pleasure through this version of us. This is where we’re able to kick back and relax. To chill with friends, to enjoy a movie, or to spend some time in nature doing very little else. The goal is not to rid ourselves of this comfort-seeking self, the goal is instead to control it. Rather than being controlled by it.
