It's like the story of a dog who was lying outside, moaning. A neighbor asks the owner what's wrong. The owner says, "he's lying on a nail". The neighbor says,"well why doesn't he get up?" The owner says, "because it doesn't hurt badly ENOUGH". This is the same as "settling". Often we stay in situations that are not right because the thought of changing is scarier than leaving the comfort of the familiar.
