Finding Comfort in Discomfort

Have you been faced with uncomfortable feelings? At some point or another, we all have.

New experiences tend to come with fresh feelings—and sometimes these feelings can be unsettling. Instead of fighting what you cannot change, try embracing the waves of discomfort. This can lead to a deeper understanding of what is truly bothering you.
