What if Comfort Didn’t Exist?

Why is Comfort so Important?

Why is Comfort so Important?

What if comfort didn’t exist? Where would we be? We would be in a dark world where no one would thrive. I picture that it would be similar to Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Politeness would be an urban legend, the only food would be stale kale, and the days would be long and cold. The Earth may as well be a barren wasteland. We take this for granted more than we realize. Sometimes, we may take our friends for granted as well. We don’t know all the comfort that we receive from them, until we realize it is gone. Comfort is only partly a necessity. We could well survive without it, but would we be truly happy? Hardly. As children, if someone didn’t come along with a bandage for our scraped knee, we would learn agony and pain. But most of us had a loving parent to come along and pick us up and teach us to get back on that bike again. From a young age, we were told to bring kindness to others, whether it be giving someone a shoulder to lean on in a difficult time, or just simply holding a door open. We were told that small acts of kindness make all the difference to someone. Comfort and kindness go hand-in-hand, and we need more of both in this world. A small act can go a long way.
