Throw away worries!

Believe it or not the prime emotion of this world is worry.Everybody is worried about something.And some worry about everything.It is such a pity.People lose a lot of time and energy worrying.Worrying about things that may go wrong is the funniest thing people do.People phantomize even minor obstacles and become their own enemies.This
funniest thing pushes many into such depressing thoughts that lead people to commit suicide etc.This is very annoying.It hurts me to see people sacrificing their own lives to the demons of worry created by their own minds.But those who have lived past their worries and faced the situation know that it was not as bad as they thought.Reality seldom is different from our imaginary difficulties.
Life is like that.We will live through many things.We live past broken relationships,we live after going through bankruptcy.Yes, we still live.Moral- We will somehow live through it.Mankind is blessed with many good emotions like will-power,determination etc.So we will survive,Provided we face our
worries and look through them.Stay there tight and let it pass.It will soon be over.Whenever worries creap into my mind i just ask myself- ok,what next will i
do if this worstcase scenario happens?.I just keep few options open.Like if this thing happens can i salvage anything from the situation? If not, how bad its
going to be and how i can handle that.Thats it.When i see my answers to above questions most of my worries look light.This is one way of throwing worries
Another way is by changing our perspective of any given situation.A change in perspective leaves us with many open doors to explore.Endless solutions
spring in if we could look at the object of our worry in different angles.
I do not say that we should not worry at all.I definetely hate the lazy,carefree person so called worry free stinking stereo types.Worry is good if it pushes us
into constructive action.But we should not get obsessed with worrying.That is the catch.Worrying makes us look at our problems with a magnifying glass.If
we stop doing it our problems would look manageable.That will give us confidence in finding a solution to the problem.Worries stand in the way of our
progress,Throw them away.Walking uphill with a ton of stones is much easier than facing problems with worries.

Nice post! I try not to let worries to prevent me to do things.

I just tell myself, that I rather make a mistake than missing an opportunity...

I am guilty of worrying (and more so over just the little things). It's nice to be reminded from time to time that worrying will get you nowhere. Thanks.

PS: As requested, I posted about perspective over at my blog.

Nice post.I was hit by the realization that useful idea in your sentence that "Worry is good if it pushes us into constructive action..."

Oh yes, when I was young I wasted much of my emotion on worry.

Worrying is: Crossing a bridge before you get to it.

Nice post for us to contemplate. I have found that worry simply takes away precious time better used for living and providing a good life. In my life, I have found that all things come in their own time. If there is a problem, a solution will come along. If it does not, the problem is still there despite all the time wasted on worry.
