Dear Alvin Owyong,

I really enjoyed your article. And I completely agree with you. But I’ll tell you, that second step, it’s a doozy. I love my comfort zone so much, I’ve lived such a long time there, stepping out into the cold, hard, often hateful world is ridiculously difficult.

Still, if there is any change to be done, that step is vital. I suppose if it was easier, we wouldn’t value it as much, wouldn’t appreciate the growth and the benefits nearly as much. Sometimes I just get tired and overwhelmed … but I try not to wallow for too long.

Thank you for writing.
