“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.” ~ Corrie ten Boom
Problems can make you wish you weren’t born. Repeated tragedies can make you wish you never existed; money worries can get you sick of life already. Life is full of ups and downs, they say, but when the downs seem to be non-stop, you tend to worry. Take the covid-19 pandemic for example and how it has shaken all of us. You just sit there, day in, day out and worry about your problems. You would feel like nothing matters anymore. But the truth is, something still does – YOU. You still matter because you are still alive. The things you do and think matter. Worries will definitely not solve your problem.
The deep feeling of unease and fear that courses through our body, as we sit predicting the fearful outcomes the future will bring us, is what intense worrying feels like. It’s a very nauseating and physically uncomfortable state of being, and yet most of us live the majority of our waking hours in this manner.
