Why Worry

Monday, July 01, 2013



Great question that may or not be answered by each of us individually. Does worry get us anywhere good? Will it put today on hold or make tomorrow any different for us?

I must say I do worry but not about the small stuff. I have concerns about my family and friends but I give it to God when it gets to be a little too much for me to handle. May you all have a wonderful and enjoyable day and week ahead.

    Worry does nothing but make you feel anxious. But I worry too, catch myself, and try to stop, and then try to do something positive. It helps whn you do something positive.
Good blog!!

    That is a very healthy way to look at worry Eileen! And I feel the same way. Whenever it becomes too much for me, I always give it up to God and I feel better almost instantly! God bless you and have a wonderful July 4th and week ahead!

    I almost ended up in the hospital twice last year, primarily from worrying about a situation that didn't resolve itself as soon as most things had done for all my life prior to that. Wow! I didn't realize that I had worried about things for so long, but it was because they resolved fairly quickly.


I am doing better now - knock on wood! I sometimes still have to remind myself that some things are not mine to fix, and I should allow others to get their life lessons.

    My DH always says if I wasn't worried about something, I'd worry about that! I am a worrier but in my later years I am realizing most of what we worry about never happens. I am doing better with age about letting go of worrisome thoughts.

  Long ago my neighbor next door was a grandmother named Carmen, a lovely Hispanic woman---- as sweet as she could be.
I was a young bride and I was telling her I was worried about "something".... She smiled and said to me, "I don't vorrie; I give all my vorries to God." ----
Carmen's lesson was one of wisdom and faith. I'll always remember this.

    I use to worry also and had migraines because of it. When I learned to give it to God. I pray and leave it up to the Holy Spirit. I try to always remember God is in control.
Migraines gone.

    I used to worry. I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't help so now I pray - putting the situation in God's hands. Then I look to plans, alternatives and solutions that may be useful.

    I worry frequently and spend plenty of time trying to figure out what to do to make things easier. I wish I didn't have to worry, but I'm stuck in a tornado of crap that only I will be able to try to deal with (everyone else runs away). I often try to distract myself so I'm not worrying, and sometimes it helps.

    I love the photo and the saying. I think we all worry about something. I try not to worry so much as I used to. It never got me anywhere except not feeling good, because I would stress myself out too much. emoticon emoticon emoticon
