    Hi everyone,

    Does "be comfortable doing something" mean "like doing something" or "have no difficulty doing something"?

    Here is an example:

    What kind of decisions are you comfortable taking on your own?


    Thanks

    If I am comfortable doing something, it does not cause me any particular stress or anxiety and I feel it is well within my competence to do it. I may not like it, but it does not give me any real trouble.

    I believe Nunty meant to write "...but it does not give me any real trouble."
