    When you feel like something bad gonna happen!

    But you don't know when or where? Wondering If you can survive or not from all of this! If they won't let you survive or they will take you with them to death? Because they prefer let you die than live your life like you want! A lot of questions on your mind and there's no...

    It really takes a toll on me the way I worry

    about things that haven't happened and most likely never will. I worry that no matter what precautions I take, somehow I will be the one that bad things will happen to. I wish I could just live, be safe and let things ride. Not to be careless but to live and deal with things...

    I worry so much about you.

    You mean everything to me. I dont know what I'd do without you. I know you're going through a lot right now. But I wish you'd take the time to talk to me. To tell me what's going on. To stop me from worrying so much. To tell me its ok. I wish you'd understand that I'm going...

    This week I feel like I'm constantly on the

    verge of tears. I keep trying not to think about everything. I should be happy. I should be excited. After almost a year of trying to get a job I've finally got an opportunity. I'm going to be doing temp work. Which is better than nothing and the pay is pretty decent. But the...

    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...

    Recently I've been chanting to myself,

    'I can do whatever I want.' 'I have free will.' 'The decision is mine.' because I worry about doing the right or wrong thing way more often than I should. And when I don't meet these out-there expectations I have a pouty fest, and the event plays over and over again in my head...

    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 too much, but I try to convince myself

    that I don't care what people think or the negative things but in reality I do. I overthink and I. Think about it all the time. Why can't I just relax and enjoy the little hugs I guess it never works out that way 😩😔

    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...

    Stop worrying. Stop getting angry at things

    that aren't worth the energy you put into staying angry. Take a shower. Take five showers. Hell, take ten showers if you want to. Stay in bed all day and do nothing. Watch ****** romantic movies and cry your heart out. Stay outside all day. Wake up in the morning with the...

    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.
