Whoever invented worrying. WHY, WHY, WHY? August 3, 2011

Unless I am missing something, I see no real value to worrying. Coming from a Jewish family where “worrying” is part of the gene pool, I have struggled to let go of this dreadful habit.

Worrying, perhaps in very small doses, can be a motivator to take action. I get that. However, 99.9% of the time, we are worrying about something that we have no control over. This becomes magnified when the worrying is about someone else.
We must learn to give those worries right back to the owner.  How else will they learn?

Typically, worrying comes from presuming the worst and expecting only the best. WRONG THINKING! We miss the mark by doing so. Instead, try assuming the best and applauding efforts regardless of the outcome. That is the way we learn best.

Are you a “worry wart” or do you know someone who is? Let’s start a conversation about this. We can all learn a lesson or two on how to break this unhealthy, unproductive habit. It’s time for a “no worry” revolution.
