Worry-Wart

Time spent worrying is wasted time.  I have spent my fair share of time worrying and have nothing positive to show for it.  Worrying did not help me solve any problem, and it never made me feel better.  Worrying is empty and painful – not deserving of worship.  Folding laundry is better than worrying, and I try to find something worthwhile to do when the worry-wart appears.  After all, once the laundry is folded, then I don’t have to worry about that anymore.

  1. You are 100 pct correct and I understand all it and agree with it too. But somehow, most of the time, I cannot control these feeling. It is stronger than me. I can get into panic attacks because of the uncontrollable feeling.

    1. I understand the uncontrollable feeling and I still struggle to stop worrying. I took baby steps in the beginning and slowly, over time, things started to get a little easier. It is a battle every day but one worth fighting. I hope you are able to find some relief soon.

  2. I worry because, a lot of my anxiety stems from my husband. I know I should give those worries to God. That is something that I have been working on. You are exactly right! I am worshiping the problem. I should be trying to find the solution.

  3. My anxiety causes me to worry often, but I’ve been learning to remain in the present instead of worrying about what’ll happen (or won’t happen) tomorrow, or whenever. Thank you for this post.

  4. So true. All worrying does is take you back to that time so that you can relive it all over again. Truth is, back there is the only place it can have an effect on you. If one moves their mind into the present, and out of the past, the effect ceases. The laundry, …and so much more is waiting for us. Now we can embrace life.
