No I go the opposite as I adjust and make changes if current situation not working. I like to swim upstream Smiley Happy

I think something does grow in a comfort zone. It gives you the ability to renew and go on for another moment and another day with hope.

No.......the same as @rockygems123, I attack the challenge with a fervor until I am satisfied.

Well, first of all, depending on what the situation is, I'll look to the internet for information. After that, I'll keep busy til I ? or the problem ? settle down a bit. I might also talk to a trusted friend or DH about it before I take action or not.

I don't like for things to go unresolved.  If there is an answer, I try to find it.  I've always tackled problems and not tried to hide from them or avoid them.  However, if there are things which go on and on and there is seemingly no resolution and it's out of my control, I might just retreat and go to a place where I find the most comfort and peace.

Re: Do You Retreat To Your Comfort Zone When Things Get Tough?

It is strange to me how many are interpreting this or maybe how I am not? 

 

Why would a comfort zone mean that you don't tackle or take care of problems or see them through? Maybe I am reading it wrong.

It seems especially when tackling all the problems we human beings have everyday, after trying to fix them and taking care of so many problems, we all need a comfort zone to retreat to or go mad! Then we start again. Like taking a great nap when we are so tired, so we can do it all again, the next day or even moment. A few moments of reprieve in our comfort zone.

I thought the same thing. Everyone needs a reprieve now and then. Maybe they're talking about staying in your comfort zone too long....I don't know.  That's a whole other story.

Re: Do You Retreat To Your Comfort Zone When Things Get Tough?

A lot depends on what it is that's tough. If I can fix it, change it, I will. If not, I try to let it go, hard as that can be.  My comfort zone in the summer is mowing and working in the yard. Reading also helps. I take my dog for walks every day. Or I find a charity that needs help. Nothing settles my mind or gives me clarity than helping the less fortunate.
