We all seek comfort one way or another.
It just depends on whether or not you know that you are the "comforter" or the "comfort-ee".
I reckon to be neither [at least right now in my stage of life]. There is way too much at stake to put "comforting" emotions out there. I didn't realize that the way American society is nowadays, people honestly do not care how much they drain their "friends" or "buddies". The ultimate comforter is Christ, and people who don't go to Him, will only fool themselves and keep looking for comfort in all the wrong places.
Food, entertainment, people, whatever that would hide the real truth - your attention should be in Christ.
End of story.
