I worry too much. I worry that I worry too much!
Worry can get in the way of enjoying life. If we spend time worrying about the future, we cannot enjoy the present. Worry takes time and energy that we could use elsewhere. We can accomplish more if we worry less.
And yet sometimes I wonder if maybe a little bit of worry is good.
If we are a little worried about our future, won’t we plan a little better? Won’t we do a little more like get an education, work hard, put money away for emergencies, for retirement?
I know that I need to manage my worry. I spend too much time worrying about things that never happen, and are not likely to happen. But I think I will hang on to enough worry that I still feel a need to plan for the future.
