You’re Not Alone
Anxiety and worry are very common. One website states, “It has been stated that anxiety has become the number one mental health issue in the North America. It is estimated that one- third of the North American adult population experiences anxiety unwellness issues (Folk & Folk, 2017).”
Worry is Unproductive and Harmful
Many people worry themselves sick, and most of what people worry about doesn’t even happen. Besides that, worrying about issues will not prevent them from happening.
Corrie Ten Boom said, “Worrying is carrying tomorrows load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength (Ten Boom, 2017).”
Jesus said, “So don’t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34 NAS).”
Pretty much everyone agrees that worry is counter-productive.
