I Worry About the Future For Myself

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift, that's why it's known as the present 1,082 People

    In the movies with a sad

    and tragic ending for the main character, I often cry, thinking "I would become like that" or "that's me, in 10 years". I just have that feeling.

    I Often Wonder -

    what's to become of me. I ask God how I'll survive.  When I ask these questions, I feel guilty because I know he'll always provide, so why would I ask these stupid questions? It means that I need to work on my faith. So, I answered my own question.

    I worry, I worry far too much.

    And i understand that worrying isn't productive it's about action, I just worry that I might not be doing enough, not taking all the experiences that I can! I hope everything turns out okay in the end - anyone else as much of a worrier as I am?

    I don't know what the future holds.

    I have these thoughts and sometimes dreams of a happy life but each day nothing happens and it's like I'm wasting time not doing anything. And the question "what if" always comes into my head, like what if things don't get better, then what?

    I worry about getting old.

    I worry about being sick. I worry about dying, I worry about not having any money. I worry about being alone for the rest of my life. Why do I even bother to stick around? Because of my kids...that's why. Otherwise I would put an end to my fears.
