Stop Worrying so Much
This is addressed at myself. Yes, I am a hypocrite. However, stop worrying so much about everything. Life is meant to be enjoyed and worrying is only making you suffer twice. You are worried about something that might or might not happen, and then you might be unhappy if said thing were to happen. But then: what is the damned point of worrying about it if you cannot change a thing about the situation?
I have always suffered with anticipation anxiety ever since I remember. I was always nervous before anything was about to happen, and that continues to this day. I want to believe that I am a little better at handling my feelings now, but we both know that is a complete lie.
I worry about how someone might react to a message I have not even sent yet. I worry about the person I have not met. I worry about the future I am yet to live. And why is it that I am purposefully choosing to worry and suffer by overthinking all situations, when I could be enjoying this lovely evening at home with a glass of wine and talking to my favourite people in the world?
There is no good reason for it, so take this as a sign that you are able to stop worrying about every single thing in your life. Maybe sometimes it is good to let loose a little and not let every thought control each second of your day.
What are some of the things you wish you would stop worrying about? Let me know below.
I know the feeling. As I get older I am finding that I worry more and more. Finances, job, family, whether I should bother socializing lol. At one point I was practically the opposite. I guess it’s trying to find that middle ground, preparing for the worse, working towards achieving the best outcome, and being open to new opportunities. Sounds a little cliche, yet is pretty helpful to prevent that worry from consuming a person’s life. 🙂

Same here, every year I worry about more/new things that I always took for granted. And that’s good advice, some things are cliches for a reason 🙂
I think we worry so much because we always want to stay in control, its more especially when you have anxiety, because you know how bad things might tur out to be, what I’ve realized is the energy I put into the universe when I’m anxious about something often comes back in a negative way.
So I try as much as possible not to worry, (haven’t succeed so far), and I teach myself not to be too hard on myself, more especially when things don’t go my way, I see those as life and the universe teaching me a lesson and giving me more chances to live an authentic life.
So, I’d say, worry but don’t let it consume your life or stop you from living
