Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Nick Jonas

You've got to avoid situations that make you uncomfortable. — Nick Jonas

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

When you encounter uncomfortable situations, you can either decide to be victim or an over-comer. Always choose to be an over-comer. Grace is within our reach to be an over-comer. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Lavinia Spalding

There's something profoundly intense and intoxicating about friendship found en route. It's the bond that arises from being thrust into uncomfortable circumstances, and the vulnerability of trusting others to navigate those situations. It's the exhilaration of meeting someone when we are our most alive selves, breathing new air, high on life-altering moments. It's the discovery of the commonality of the world's people and the attendant rejection of prejudices. It's the humbling experience of being suspicious of a stranger who then extends a great kindness. It's the astonishment of learning from those we set out to teach. It's the intimacy of sharing small spaces, the recognition of a kindred spirit across the globe.
It's the travel relationship, and it can only call itself family. — Lavinia Spalding

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Nolan Gerard Funk

My biggest fantasy as an actor is to be in situations that make me uncomfortable and force me out of my comfort zone. — Nolan Gerard Funk

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Linda Kohanov

USE EMOTIONS AS INFORMATION. Horses use emotion as information to engage surprisingly agile responses to environmental stimuli and relationship challenges:

(a) Feel the emotion in its purest form
(b) Get the message behind the emotion
(c) Change something in response to the message
(d) Go back to grazing. In other words, let the emotion go, and either get back on task or relax, so you can enjoy life fully. Horses don't hang on to the story, endlessly ruminating over the details of uncomfortable situations

-- from an October 30, 2013 article on the Intelligent Optimist magazine — Linda Kohanov

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Anushka Sharma

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Frances Moore Lappe

We can all reprogram our brain's responses by putting ourselves into new, initially uncomfortable situations. We'll learn fear might not mean 'stop'; I've come to believe fear usually means 'go. — Frances Moore Lappe

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Conor McGregor

One of the reasons I got into this game was because I wanted to learn how to get myself comfortable in uncomfortable situations. I grew up in a tough area of Dublin, and fighting was just part of your life. Boys fight, and I won some, but I lost a lot too, and I didn't like that, I didn't like that feeling of not knowing whether I was in danger, in trouble. — Conor McGregor

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Seth Godin

Going out of your way to find uncomfortable situations isn't natural, but it's essential. — Seth Godin

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Dorothy Canfield Fisher

I never heard of anybody who admired the character of sheep. Even the gentlest human personalities in contact with them are annoyed by their lack of brains, courage and initiative, by their extraordinary ability to get themselves into uncomfortable or dangerous situations and then wait in inert helplessness for someone to rescue them. — Dorothy Canfield Fisher

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Gwenno

You need to push yourself, put yourself in uncomfortable situations rather than stick to your comfort zone. — Gwenno

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Michael Hersch

There are times I'm completely uncomfortable with my works being performed publicly, and I haven't attended certain concerts because the prospect is akin to having a diary read on stage. But there are also situations - whether with an audience of one, or many - where the concert experience can be deeply special, and those experiences are often unpredictable, and wonderful when they occur. — Michael Hersch

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Ron Perlman

I love to continue to challenge myself and put myself in situations that are slightly uncomfortable. — Ron Perlman

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Emma Nichols

I am a runner. Not an actual runner, like with shoes and sweat. Instead, I specialize in leaving uncomfortable situations with alarming speed. Some people need closure, I need space. — Emma Nichols

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Frankie Rose

Let's go inside. I always find walking inside buildings has this bizarre effect on me. I immediately forget uncomfortable situations, like when tiny midget women straddle my best friend's boyfriend and face-rape him. — Frankie Rose

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Susie Orbach

Emotional Literacy means being able to recognise what you are feeling, so that it doesn't interfere with thinking. It becomes another dimension to draw upon when making decisions or encountering situations. Emotional expression by contrast can mean being driven by emotions, so that it isn't possible to think. These two things are often confused, because we are still uncomfortable with the idea of the validity of feelings. — Susie Orbach

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Brian Regan

A formula for comedy is comedy equals tragedy plus time. A difficult or uncomfortable situation takes place, and then you laugh about it later down the road. — Brian Regan

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By M.L. Stedman

No one was quite sure how to treat this mourning that wasn't for a death. — M.L. Stedman

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Pam Houston

I was in Mongolia, pretty extreme situations. We were sick with dysentery, we were sick with bronchitis. I had been bitten by a dog for the first time in my life and my whole hand was black, and there was no way to even think of getting a rabies shot without driving for five days, and then you wouldn't have wanted that needle in your skin anyway. And I had my period. Everything was wrong at one time. Like, I couldn't have been more uncomfortable. And I stayed up - it was too cold to sleep. — Pam Houston

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Rudy Simone

Not comprehending things the way other people do is fine in academia because we can usually find our own methods, but in social situations, this same tendency plays out differently - we can't always impose our own rules and priorities on others. We can't research people in everyday conversation the way we research information from books. It is not uncommon for us, when we're young, to ask too many questions of others, which makes them uncomfortable. If we could set the tone, we would probably be more comfortable, but we can't so we shut down. — Rudy Simone

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Carl Sutton

When I am in a situation where I feel uncomfortable about speaking but it is necessary for me to speak, or if I feel 'put on the spot' my voice sounds strained, really weird, and it feels as if I have no control over how I sound in these situations. Sometimes then my voice is barely audible and I am frequently asked to repeat myself. Attempts at speaking are often embarrassing, shaming experiences for me. I sound quite different when speaking with someone I am more relaxed with, but I don't like the way my voice sounds at the best of times; I was horrified when I heard a recording of myself. Because of this inhibition about speaking, I have never learned to project my voice or to use it effectively. I often feel that I could no more use my vocal cords to break a silence, to get somebody's attention or to initiate an interaction than I could run through fire or do something dangerous in my life. — Carl Sutton

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Mikhail Baryshnikov

I'm an impatient person in many respects. I like to put myself in uncomfortable situations. It forces me to deliver. — Mikhail Baryshnikov

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Jenn Bennett

That's the thing about being an evader. You have to be flexible and know when to bail before it all gets weird. Better for everyone, really. I'm a giver.

My plane landed half an hour ago, but I'm taking a circuitous route to what I hope is the backside of baggage claim, where my dad is supposed to pick me up. The key to avoiding uncomfortable situations is a preemptive strike: make sure you see them first. And before you accuse me of being a coward, think again. It's not easy being this screwed up. It takes planning and sharp reflexes. A devious mind. My mom says I'd make a great pickpocket, because I can disappear faster than you can say, Where's my wallet? The Artful Dodger, right here. — Jenn Bennett

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Andrew Solomon

I encounter a lot of prejudice and a lot of darkness. I have to negotiate constantly through situations that are uncomfortable or difficult or strange. — Andrew Solomon

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Sandra Bernhard

I love performing. I love being a provocateur. I love putting myself in situations that are uncomfortable and that I have to get out of. — Sandra Bernhard

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Seth Godin

Insulate yourself ...
from anonymous angry people
Expose yourself to art you don't yet understand
Precisely measure the results that are important to you
Stay blind to the metrics that don't matter
Fail often
Lead, don't manage so much
Seek out uncomfortable situations
Make an impact on the people who matter to you
Be better at your baseline skills than anyone else
Copyedit less, invent more
Give more speeches
Ignore unsolicited advice — Seth Godin

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Aubrey Plaza

I have a way of dealing with situations where I come off awkward, or people think I'm purposely trying to make things uncomfortable. But normally I'm talking really slowly or there's a lot of silence because there's just nothing going on. I'm just totally freaking out, but from the outside perspective it looks like I'm in control. — Aubrey Plaza

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Anne Lamott

The problem is acceptance, which is something we're taught not to do. We're taught to improve uncomfortable situations, to change things, alleviate unpleasant feelings. But if you accept the reality that you have been given- that you are not in a productive creative period- you free yourself to begin filling up again. — Anne Lamott

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Trent Reznor

I really try to put myself in uncomfortable situations. Complacency is my enemy. — Trent Reznor

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Olivia Harvard

My tendency to make awkward situations even more ininappropriate and uncomfortable was such a charming characteristic. — Olivia Harvard

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Johnny Depp

I'd get very nervous and uncomfortable in social situations and the only way I could feel at all normal was, well, to drink my guts out. — Johnny Depp

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Hunter S. Thompson

As for LSD, I highly recommend it. We had a fine, wild weekend and no trouble at all. The feeling it produces is hard to describe. 'Intensity' is a fair word for it. Try half a cube at first, just sit in the living room and turn on the music - after the kids have gone to bed. But never take it in uncomfortable or socially tense situations. And don't have anybody around whom you don't like. — Hunter S. Thompson

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Demi Lovato

Sometimes staying strong means not putting yourself in uncomfortable or triggering situations. — Demi Lovato

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Sarah Steele

They're not allowed to talk about it at school and they maybe feel uncomfortable talking about it with their parents. But instead of them not knowing about it, now we have these gadgets and we can learn about it and not tell our parents and get ourselves into potentially dangerous situations. — Sarah Steele

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Pharoahe Monch

There are situations where I'm uncomfortable saying, "I'm a hip-hop artist." In some circles, the response is like, "Oh, OK, so ... you have whores and your ties are shiny?" — Pharoahe Monch

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

The grace of silence-enduring hard times. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Yehuda Berg

Change requires leaving our comfort zones and plunging headfirst into uncomfortable situations. It's true this causes some pain and discomfort for a moment, but it's the quickest path to generating long-term fulfillment. — Yehuda Berg

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Franka Potente

I'm so uncomfortable, especially in emotional situations, having to say sentences that don't feel right. As an actor - or really, as any kind of person sensitive to it. — Franka Potente

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By J.R.R. Tolkien

Escaping goblins to be caught by wolves!" he said, and it became a proverb, though we now say 'out of the frying-pan into the fire' in the same sort of uncomfortable situations. — J.R.R. Tolkien

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By James Ellroy

For a much lauded writer, I'm not terribly self-absorbed. In social situations, which are difficult for me - I mean, this is an interview - I'm normally uncomfortable talking about myself. — James Ellroy

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Asa Don Brown

A smile can reassure another, provide comfort to uncomfortable situations, and display personal self-confidence for all to see. — Asa Don Brown

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

don't worry when situations get bitter. A bitter situation is a better teacher. The greatest lessons in life cannot only be found in comfort but also in the uncomfortable situations of life — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Uncomfortable Situations Quotes By Stephen Colbert

I'm very comfortable with uncomfortable situations, and I think that can seem odd to people, that I like the thrill of discomfort. — Stephen Colbert
