How We Justify Worry

  1. We call it being responsible. Responsibility becomes worry when we do what we can control but, then, won’t let go of that which we can’t.
  2. We confuse worry with concern. Worrying about a concern makes us a meddler in someone else’s business.
  3. We think that if we worry we will change something. Worrying does change things, but mostly for the worse. Worry steals our competence and robs others of our distilled presence. 
  4. We call it being human. Worrying takes the best elements of our humanity, our courage, our love, and our strength,  and turns them over to fear.

Bust yourself for worrying.
