What's wrong with comfort zones?

    You hear people all the time saying it's good to get out of your comfort zone and such, an I do think I understand if it's directed at somebody who what's to be successful in a certain area but won't take risks or something. But generally, can you not be happy in your comfort zone?
    I thinks it's slightly personal for me because I prize feeling comfortable and safe as part of being happy, but then I also feel like if I were to take more risks, some aspects of my life would become what I want them to be. But would that mean I'd just have to compromise? Sacrifice safety and comfort (which make me happy) for risks and 'adventure' which equally have the potential to make me happy, and just live constantly half-fulfilled? Or can you have both?
