So a few days ago, I told my institute teacher that I was worried, and he said that worry was about 80% fear.
I had never thought about it before, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot. I am a worrier. I am always worrying about something. I don’t necessarily like it.
But a lot of it because I live so much in fear. I fear that things won’t work out. I fear that things won’t go how I want them to. I fear what is unknown.
I don’t have to be afraid.
Maybe some things won’t work out. But I don’t have to worry about it before it happens. I don’t have to be afraid of it. All experience is good experience, and I can just go on with life.
When I am the most worried, I stop functioning. I don’t do anything with my life because I am so concerned with the future and the past that the present just flies away.
But if I learn to live without that fear, and embrace what I have, then I’m more willing to get up and live the day. I’m more willing to be brave, to have faith, hope, and charity.
I’ll work on it.
