    Re: Get out of one´s comfort zone

    To "get out of one's comfort zone" is to try a new experience.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Perhaps "be in uncharted territory/waters" will do. After all, it is related to fear of the unknown.
