Yes, I think I am. I worry a lot about things that are often out of my control. I try very hard to be more laid back, but I rarely pull this off. I worry so much about my family and friends, about things that haven't even happened yet, and likely need to take a lot more in my stride. It's something I'm working on as I know it's not the best use of my time.
Not anymore, I have learnt that the best way to approach your life challenges is not worry about what might happen. Instead conserve your energy so that when things do happen you will have the energy and the clarity to deal with it.
I do worry, but I don't think I am a worry wart. I only worry to a realistic extent and don't let it bother me. My rule is: think of the worst that can happen and prepare yourself for it. In this case, no matter what happens, I have already prepared myself.
I worry about the past , present and future and all things in between too.
This is the beginning of the thinking trap.
Logically i know that almost all that I worry about will not ever happen, but i do it anyway.
Time to change this and allow myself to enjoy the moment.
Yes, I am inherently a worrier and some of this is inherated. My mother was a worrier and its a learned behaviour. But, what i have learned as an adult is to manage worry and to learn to 'let some things go' so as to retain that energy for 'bigger worries'. That is the mantra I tell myself and it works....the real lesson of course is to release yourself from worry as a conscious action....it works...and feels great....
Yes! I worry about everything! I think I have been a worry wart since childhood and having kids of my own to worry about it's probably gotten worse!!! My counseller (a very wise woman!), told me that I am what is called a "catastrophiser". I always think of the worst possible scenario for even the most minor things and then blow it all out of proportion. I pretty well do that with everything!!! I doubt if I'll ever change I'm afraid, it's just the way I am!!! Mandy E.
I am such a big worry wart. I can't help it... no matter how hard I have tried, worrying seems to be a fall back emotional position for me. I do admit that I have been diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder, which just tells you how much I worry, even when it isn't warranted.
Funnily enough most people would probably say that I don't seem worried about stuff and that I look more or less together. But on the inside, it's like fingernails scraping down the blackboard and mice running around on their play wheel without hope of getting off any time soon.
That's why I do art and write. It's because I must. I have to get it out.
Sometimes I worry needlessly and at other times I don't. It annoys me when I find myself worrying about whether I did the right thing decades ago. How crazy is that? I manage to push those worries away but why do they pop into my head to start with?
There are times I find myself worrying how I would cope if certain things were to happen in the future. I make an effort to reassure myself I would cope, someone would provide help or things would sort themselves out.
