Let these eye-opening, uncomfortable quotes and sayings challenge us to look at facts, grow in maturity and relive the best versions of ourselves.
Uncomfortable is a mental feeling that makes one uneasy, restless, and unacceptable to the facts that life offers us through daily experiences.
What makes someone uncomfortable is the bitter truth that exposes the hard-hitting life facts that challenge our rigid opinions and pre-conceived mental model of a happy life.
Since we are so accustomed to seeing false as true, hard facts look uncomfortable. Otherwise, facts are just facts. It’s our prejudices and mental rigidities that make reality uneasy.
The only way to be mentally okay is to be honest while feeling uncomfortable when faced with life facts.
We are stronger internally than we think ourselves to be. Let the acknowledgment of the uncomfortable facts of life bring a radical change in the way we think and act.
Then, a nonserious way of living will touch our lives, and nothing in the world can make us feel anxious anymore.
Why do we avoid facts?
On the contrary, one must understand why we love living in illusions and self-created assumptions.
It’s an inner conspiracy of mind to never look into the plain facts of daily living.
Otherwise, the subtle compromises and adjustments the psyche make to live a life of greed and security pop up and reveal oneself.
For example, we experience frequent tension and boredom with insensitive bosses and colleagues who play dirty work politics. Simply, the office is mentally draining us out.
One finds no real joy in working in that organization. Instead, it’s monotonous, boring, pressure-filled, and plastic.
The stressful jobs make us desperate for a vacation in a faraway coastal island or mountains, a relaxing drink at the end of the day to avoid sleep apnea, or a weekend party to unwind ourselves.
Yet, we won’t acknowledge to ourselves that I am stuck with a wrong career. Why do we never face such uncomfortable facts? Because there is comfort, money, pleasure, and social reputation attached with a hefty salary and secure job.
You can imagine a similar situation concerning wrong relationships, wrong lifestyle, wrong value judgments, wrong ideologies, wrong thought processes, etc.
We will avoid all factual things in life until we live in self-made lies and label them as duties and moral responsibilities.
And there is no freedom from mental suffering without going close to the daily facts of our lives.
