I wish I knew because then maybe I could stop worrying. One of my worst faults is worrying about something that may never happen. I have this theory that if I picture the worst in a situation and it actually happens, then it won't be such a shock.

Not everyone is like me. My partner never worries about things because he says what will be will be and worrying about it won't change anything. I know this is true and I wish I could be like him but I think if you are a worrier it is just part of your nature and there is little you can do that will make a difference.

It helps to know that there are many others like me especially when it comes to parents worrying about their children. As they grow up and become a little more independent  the thought of not being there for them so much is quite scary. It's the thing I worry about the most and I know that will never change.

I think it is only natural and human to worry about things especially the ones we don't have control over. As we humans, we take pride in handling affairs, making plans and making things follow the order that we want them to go. But more often than not, things do not go as planned and when we become uncertain about something because there's little we can do to help the situation, we go into panic and worries set in. Fear of the unknown.

This is the part where faith comes in for me, even though faith should be there at the start, it should be stronger during uncertainty. Funny how we still worry even though it does nothing to help the situation. Worries are interests paid in advance for a debt which you do not even owe. I know that we can't help but worry at times though. Brings us to why we are humans.

I think this is because we humans are natural worriers. We worry about the possible outcomes of things before they actually happen, and when they indeed happen, we worry about what will happen next. This also has to do with the fact that nothing is 100% certain, and that the possibility of outcomes shifting from what we anticipated is highly likely.

I think we have all been in this kind of situation where we get so paranoid, especially when looking forward to something we want so bad to happen.

However, although there have been such drawbacks with being a worrier, it also has advantages of its own. When we worry about things, we get to prepare ourselves with all the possible outcomes, and perhaps be able to do necessary adjustments.

I believe it just human nature to worry especially on things that we don't have control over.it makes us feel so helpless and it like the only way out is to think about it and pray or hope it goes away.

I worry alot too especially on things that I really need to see happen and it isn't forth coming, it like worrying always get me closer to my goal though because it keeps motivated to devise avenues of either solving the problem or making the dreams come to reality.
Well,we can't blame one another when we have our goals and aspirations ahead of us and life situations will be dulling us, it makes us so unhappy and make us think of ways to fix it. I think the best bet is looking for the way forward to any situation that worrying over it.

Truthfully, I barely worry myself over those things I don't have absolute control over, but every now and then there is this uncontrollable inclination to be bothered about them. It doesn't do us any good to be worked up with things we have no control of, because they are only there to stress us out and raise our blood pressure.
We must have the knowledge that life often present us with two main options, which could either be things we have control over or ones we don't have control over. It's always in our best interests to live for the moment by making immediate plans and setting realistic short term goals. Because anytime we become engrossed with the thought of what tomorrow holds, we are setting ourselves up for anxiety, stress, if care is not taken, heart breaks.

Advisably, do the things necessary for now that will better your tomorrow but never overstep the present situation by trying to grasp what lies on the horizon.

I believe the people who experience it the most are those who are always do over thinking and having time to find inner peace. It is important to people to know how to calm themselves, by doing so inner peace can be acquired.
