How do you feel outside your comfort zone?

It's exactly what the term implies. It makes me uncomfortable, so much so that I avoid it at all cost. Since I have gone through life without any form of stability, I'm hesitant to try any new experiences. This is why, after I graduated from college last year with a business degree, I still stay at my job at McDonald's. If possible, I might stay there for life. If I could pull off working for Crossmark for 5.5 years, then I could pull off long term employment at any company, especially considering Crossmark is more professional than any fast food joint.

I had tried working 2 jobs at the same time (Arby's and Crossmark). I ran into bad luck at Arby's without having done anything bad. My resulting mental breakdown ended up costing me my job at Crossmark. At first, it really sucked that 5.5 years went down the drain like that, but then when I think about it, I still worked 5.5 years there. That's what I meant by instability, in employment and/or relationships. Random bad things can happen even when you do nothing wrong. So far, random bad things hadn't happened at McDonald's. I worked 2.5 years at my current store and 1 years at another store in the same franchise.

If I ever felt like leaving my comfort zone, I wouldn't still be living in this shit town. I would be in Springfield or Bentonville, AR. Maybe I'll return to Ohio or New York. But I'm staying for the sake of my continued employment at this particular store and for some stability. I just wish bad things hadn't happened to me. I understand if I did something wrong and I get bad consequences (like when I first moved to Joplin). I simply can't wrap my head around being kicked to the curb simply for looking up to someone. 

I recovered from the Arby's incident last year but there are still residual effects I'm dealing with. I remember living alone for 6 months before my mental breakdown caused me to move back home. Now I'm scared to move out again. I been driving for several years until I been in an accident cuz I simply didn't see the pick up I rear ended. Now my family is treating me like I'm not capable.

Maybe I need to leave my comfort zome so I could move to a place where people are generally nicer and won't go psycho on me for shitty reasons. Maybe after a few more years at my current job, I could finally...

The world is my zone. And the zone of a whole lotta other living things. To put it mildly.

I think words as we know them cause many, many, MANY problems. MANY.

I'm quite literal. Quite. Literal. I can do metaphoric speech, but it always seems so bloody disingenious to me. Yuck.

Don't lose a source of income, thass for sure.

Don't do what I did. I got a college degree then only went for jobs any schlep with a 6th grade education could get. As a result I never got anywhere in the business world. And I never got a paycheck that counted for rent, food, etc. So I lived at home until I got married to a fellow who had more ambition. Now he supports me and I'm left feeling like a failure. 

Save some money and move out. Go for jobs that pay more than minimum wage. Go for jobs where you have some responsibility and where a raise doesn't involve minimum wage going up. Take the bull by the horns and make something out of yourself. And do it while you're still young enough to succeed. 

A job's a job. Yes find a place where people are pleasant.
