Many of us worry. Worrying is a common trait that many have. We worry about our kids, our responsibilities, our bodies, our relationships, our to-do list, our house, our finances, and the list could go on and on.
Is worrying productive and/or helpful or is it the sign of a major problem? We will explore that question in this blog post!
I grew up with four older brothers and one younger sister. A couple of my older brothers enjoyed teasing me and pushing my buttons. They did things such as call me names that rhymed with “Matt” or put me in a sleeping bag and not let me out. I was not one to just suffer in silence. Therefore, my mother had to be involved often during those years to make sure I wasn’t tied up or hanging from the garage rafters. My mother was and is a worrier. She is a wonderful mother and I love her very much. However, she has spent a lot of energy worrying over the years.
This blog post is a chance for me to share my personal thoughts on worrying. This is not a scientific point of view, rather my point of view.
