Worry Is a Waste of Time

Worry Is a Waste of Time
December 13, 2021

Why worry? Some people can provide a very long answer to that question. “I’m worried about my children’s future, how to pay the bills, global warming, what if I don’t like the people who move in next door?” Most of the things people worry about are things they have no control over. Which means all of their worry, all of their mental and emotional energy they are investiing on that topic brings them nothing in return except for the experience of self torture by living through imaginary, unwanted outcomes. Most worries won’t come true. And what is true is that worrying about them before doesn’t make you more prepared. This is why people are happier, healthier, and more serene when they adopt an attitude of acceptance. Next time you find yourself worrying, tell yourself, “It will probably work out, and no matter what happens, I will be able to meet the challenge.”
