I read that phrase this morning and just connected with it somehow.
There is a place in your experience that sits in between comfortable and lazy on the one side; with anxious and uneasy on the other side. There is this space in between those 2 sides where you should be able to be present enough to Metabolize Your Experience.
The thing is – we love the extremes. It’s most safe on the sides – even anxiety and stress can feel safe for some.
The area of growth and identity development is that space in between where you can be present with yourself to do the deep self-work that you need to develop identity.
Don’t get me wrong. Identity can be developed in laziness and in anxiety. The growth happens in between somewhere.
