    I am constantly worried about something alllll

    the time. I even worry about people too. It's either ridiculous or a good thing, but I don't know, I think it's a bit too much. I'd rather only worry about people than something totally stupid that I shouldn't even be worried about.

    My life is at a crossroad now.

    It's as if, for the past week, it has stopped in the middle of the road, and just held its breath, expecting to see what next. Expecting a sign. A reason to keep going. And I, along with it, have dimmed the fire and started waiting for a sign. What sign am I looking for? I don't...

    I worry about not having anything to worry

    about. It's so silly. I actually create things to worry about. :/

    So I know what you're thinking.

    "If he knows why he worries too much, why doesn't he just not worry." Ok that's probably not what you're thinking, but still I worry too much. I have this sadistic mindset of playing out every bad scenario that could happen when a situation seems like it's going to tip. And...

    Living Past 22...

    When I was young I just knew that I would die when I was 22. But I didn't. I was surprised when I turned 23. 23 was a very bad year. Very bad. I met with a therapist today for the first time in over 20 years. I told her about dying at 22. It came out that my anxious feelings...

    You know what the funny part is?

    My paranoia often makes my fears come true. If I ask if I'm annoying you, evacuate the premises IMMEDIATELY. My fear of annoying you will eventually annoy you, much like a self-fulfilling prophesy. See, look at me, I'm not sure if I spelled "prophesy" right, and it's making me...

    I pretty much worry about lots of things,

    especially when it involves romance. See I got rejected so much in my past and got hurt so much in past that I now have a fear in trusting men. Even if they're really nice and really trustworthy as well. I know a lot of people can relate to this. Lately I've been talking to this...

    Diabetes Sucks

    My son was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when he was 5. That was one of the worst days of my life. In the beginning, I had to hold him down to give insulin injections. He would fight me like crazy and it would take at least 20 minutes each time. By the end of the ordeal, we...

    I always am worrying to much.

    I think of every possible thing that could go wrong or something stupid I think will happen. I don't want to ruin anything anymore I always do. I'm really trying to think positive. My thoughts and emotions are all over the place I can't stand it ughh.

    I worry a whole lot. I get anxious and it drives myself up the wall sometimes. Deep down inside, I fear that I'm just not experienced enough in Life to have a thick skin. That the failures that I take in will only further worsen my skills and abilities. I know that I can be...

    I used to be huge worry-wart,

    It's counteracted in foolish ways at times too.

    Counteracted simply to get away from it. The better way is to get at the roots, getting is knowing why, then to let the knowing influence what is done, for if it all stays the same, there was no knowing really going on.

    I worry about everything!

    It sounds stupid but sometimes I obsess about how much I worry. Literally worrying about worrying. I over analyze everything. How something is said, did he or she mean what I think they meant, should I apologize, what is the worst possible outcome? It's a terrible flaw. I...

    Worrying won't stop the bad things from

    happening. It will just prevent you from enjoying the good stuff. Then why do I worry so much? Most of the stuff I worry about was caused by someone else, but because I care for them I worry about them. How do I stop worrying about others.

    Everything makes me worry.

    Most of it revolves around my future.... I hate not knowing. I hate the possibility that I might be a failure.... That I might prove my parents, who believe that all creative careers fail, right.
