I definitely agree - there is often too much pressure to "push the limits" and folks are put down if they do not wish to.

I have certain things in life where I do want to try new things - I learned to SCUBA dive and am really enjoying visiting various Caribbean islands and learning more about the culture there by talking to locals. Others are quite content to stay at home. Nothing wrong with that, if that's their preference.

Sometimes I do need a gentle nudge to try something,and often appreciate it - but if it takes more than a gentle nudge, then I absolutely take a dim view of it.

The Comfort Zone is named that way because it generates a sense of comfort, and that is what a lot of us need for large portions of our lives. I really feel we need to respect that.
