Worrying is useless.The more time we spend worrying about something, the more time we are wasting. It took me a long time to realize, worrying isn’t going to change the situation. What happened has already happened and can’t be undone. Worrying isn’t going to make the time go by faster. We often think if we drive our selves crazy worrying, then time will speed up. Therefore, reaching the solution faster.
As we are wasting time worrying, we are losing sleep. Our focus is on the outcome of whatever we are worrying about. We’ve missed appointments, phone calls, and even our favorite program on television. The time we spend worrying we are frustrated, angry, and hyper sensitive. During this time, we probably have argued over something that makes no sense. In the meantime, the person we are arguing with have no idea where the anger is coming from. Furthermore, we are tense and have a short fuse, those around us feel the pressure and most likely is walking on egg shells.
Now, if we were to look back on the times we worried ourselves sick, the solution was right in front of us. The end result wasn’t as bad as we thought. The event turned out just fine. That one guest you wanted to show, showed up. On the other hand, that one guest you didn’t want to show up, didn’t. You were able to pay that bill. The financial situation worked itself out. The mistake you made really didn’t have the ripple effect you thought. That person you thought was mad at you, was going through something personal. Therefore, they needed their space.
No matter how bad you think the situation is, worrying about it is a waste of time. You worrying isn’t going to speed up the resolution. Nor is it going to change the outcome. The best thing we can do is relax. God has already won the battle for us.
The next time you find yourself worrying, pause for a moment. Remind yourself you have done all that you can do. It is out of your hands. Therefore, it is out of your control. 3 THINGS YOU CAN CONTROL Once it’s out of your control, let it go. The solution is there, you just haven’t accessed it yet. Keep yourself busy and when the solution arrives, you’ll say “I worried myself to death for nothing.”
Worrying is useless and a waste of time. I know its easier said than done, but actively try to not worry.
Be you so you can be free.
