Living life as a worrier is pretty damn stressful. Trust me. I know.
I have been a worrier most of my life. Mostly about things that are out of my control. My head can go completely nuts when I am invested in something and I worry about how it might turn out. The problem with anxiety is the unpredictability and the lack of control. And well, at the end of the day, life is unpredictable. So for anxious people, it’s like a death sentence!
In the last few months though, in addition to getting some therapy for my anxiety, I learnt something else. To start to leave things to the universe. And I have been making an effort with that. There have been so many things since December that I have just managed to let go and trust the universe.
It’s like I said about not having any regrets. Life is unpredictable and we cannot control everything. But when things happen or when we choose certain actions, we don’t really know if the outcome will be good or bad. So what is the point in regretting? And what is the point in worrying?
Worrying about things that are out of control just wastes time and energy. And in the process of worrying, we forget to live life. Sometimes, trusting things to the universe, trusting that eventually we will be where we need to be can be the most helpful way to live life. It can help us explore. It can help us take risks. It can help us be imperfect and be ourselves. Most importantly, it can help us enjoy life and live in the moment.
Do you trust the universe? How do you deal with worries?
Until next time,
