Are you one of those people who worries about every little thing? I kind of am. I get so caught up on worrying about the future that I don’t enjoy the present. That isn’t a great way to live, and I know this. There are ways to control the worry, ways that will make life so much more enjoyable. It takes a lot of determination, but it can be done. You just have to choose to overcome the fear.
Worrying never helps any situation. It only adds to the stress. Anxiety accumulates until you feel like you’re going to choke from the pressure of it all. Here are some great tips to calm down:
Corrie ten Boom once said, “Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength – carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.”
Doesn’t that make so much sense? Worrying really steals our strength away from us. I know that it’s super hard to get rid of fear, but it is doable. Just don’t let worry steal your joy. Living a joyless life can be a lonely place to be.
