"Perhaps it is not cold enough"

From an email today from a long time friend:

" is bright and sun-shiney and the birds are chirping outside of my window...but i know when i go outside that the sunshine is false because it will be around 34 or 35 degrees and the birds are crazy for being this far north when nothing keeps them from flying south to where they should want to be.

people are like exactly...i'm here and i can't overcome whatever it is that keeps me here even in my unhappiness...perhaps it is not cold enough."

I think we often resist changing things that don't feel right or that make us unhappy, because it is "not cold enough" to make the effort or to overcome our fear of the unknown.
