Stop The Worry!

Why We Worry. What It Does. How We Can Stop

Worrying is the normal human response to uncertainty. We worry when we don’t know what’s going on, how to respond, or what the outcome may be. We primarily worry about the future and what it may hold. It’s not just worrying about ourselves. We worry about our family, job, finances, home, and the world. The future is uncertain, and worry is proof that part of us is aware of this uncertainty. Avoiding worry means becoming more comfortable with uncertainty.

In many cases, we worry about losing what we already have: health, comfort, and support, to name a few. Important decisions create a strong sense of worry because big decisions create new circumstances and plunge us into the unknown. This is why procrastination is so popular. It seems better to deal with the uncertainty you already have, rather than create additional uncertainty.

On some level, we also believe that worrying is productive. After all, a day spent deep in worry is tiring. This feeling of mental fatigue convinces us that we’ve done a lot of work. But this thinking is akin to spending a day digging a hole and expecting your car to start running better.

A better use of worry is to recognize that some part of you is uncomfortable. There may be a good reason for this discomfort, or there may not. Treat worry as an alarm that something might be wrong. When worry is viewed as a warning, it isn’t necessary to delve deeper into the worry. A solution can be sought instead.

The most common causes of worry include:

-Money, bills, and other financial issues. It’s not just the financially challenged that worry about money. Even the wealthy are plagued with worry about their finances.

-Work-related issues often cause sleepless nights. In this case, the worry might be due to a fear of losing your job, and the resulting financial challenges.

-Relationship issues. Our close relationship can be a source of stress and drama. This is especially true of romantic relationships.

"Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength - carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” -Corrie Ten Boom
