I was just remembering a conversation I had a while back with someone who was always anxious. It was a lifelong burden.
Pretty much everything in his life was seen through a worst case scenario lens. And, of course, one can view almost anything in terms of what might go wrong.
Worry is the father of fear. And fear paralyzes. It fosters a risk-averse approach to life, which in turn produces uneventful and boring living, leading to overall dissatisfaction and negativity.
I saw an Instagram post the other day: “ Fear is faith that it won’t work out”. Insightful.
So why borrow trouble from the future? “Carpe diem”!
