WORRY: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU



We all worry about many things. Our health, family, children, friends, finances, business, old age, and what will happen when will die. Does worrying change a situation? Certainly not! Worrying leaves us in a state of anxiety over all sorts of things; both real and imagine. Worry create confusion and makes one behave like narcissus. While accepting our challenges, and working to correct them might not produce an expected outcome, we are better off shifting our worries to concrete action.
If nothing else, the effort will help us feel that we are being proactive. Worry not properly attended to bring about stress, it makes people overwhelmed with illusion. It brings about loneliness. People has ended up being desperate, sick, heartbroken, confused and paralyzed as a result of worry. 
A Story: The Traveler & The Shepherd

A worrisome traveler was always in the habit of interrogating people he met on his travels about the impending weather. Even though he checked himself, he would ask folks the same question, again and again. just to confirm what he already knew. They would tell him the weather was X and the worrisome traveler would continue on his journey, still worrying about the accuracy of the information he had received. One day, he met a wise shepherd and, turning to the Shepherd, the Traveler asked his usual questions.
Traveler: “What kind of weather are we going to have today?”
Shepherd: “The kind of weather I like.”
Traveler: “How do you know it will be the kind of weather you like?”
Shepherd: “Having found out, sir, that I cannot always get what I like, I have learned to always like what I get. So I am quite sure we will have the kind of weather I like.”
