Feel at ease Vs feel comfortable

< Previous | Next >
Hello everyone,

Is there a difference between "feel at ease" and "feel comfortable" (meaning: feel relaxed, not feel embarrassed, not feel worried) in the examples I made below?

a. I feel at ease when I am around my family. They protect me. They don't offend me. They're fun. Vs b. I feel comfortable when I am around my family. They protect me. They don't offend me. They're fun.

Thank you in advance!

    "feel uncomfortable" – as I said in your other thread, we don't much use "feel (ill) at ease" in conversation. We can however, put someone at ease by doing or saying something that relaxes them, makes them feel comfortable.

    Yes, me too. :) In a similar thread, I wrote: "We can however, put someone at ease by doing or saying something that relaxes them, makes them feel comfortable." When we do that, they can feel at ease.
