How to Stop Worrying
What are you worried about?
Are you worried about something with money … work … health … the way others might see you… a relationship?
Because whatever you are worried about, I need you to know this right now:
It’s going to be way more okay than you think.
Right now if we could replay every moment of your life where you were worried, here’s what I guarantee you would see:
You ended up far more okay than all those terrible results you imagined in your worrying.
That doesn’t mean that difficult things haven’t happened to you -- it instead means that at least 99.99% of the time, it’s never as bad as you imagined it would be. Not even close.
And in fact, you probably learned from many of those difficult experiences and became a better person for it.
It’s from our hard times and our failures that we grow.
And here’s what you’d also see if we could replay all those previous times you worried:
The hardest part of those situations wasn’t what actually ended up happening to you, but all the worrying you did about it.
What will defeat you if you let it is NOT all the things you worry about, but all the worrying itself.
Whatever it is that is worrying you, it might not turn out perfectly… but it will turn out far better than all that worrying would have you believe.
You have two selves in you right now:
One, the young child who is scared or upset about all those terrible worst-possible outcomes.
And two, the wise self who has been down challenging roads before and knows, based on those experiences, that it’s going to be far more okay than the child in you fears.
Listen to your wise self. It may not be easy, but take a deep breath right now and smile.
Because it’s going to turn out fine. You’re going to be okay.
