”Don’t use your energy to worry. Use your energy to believe, create, trust, grow and heal.”
We worry about the future, about money, about the likes and comments we get on our social media accounts. We worry if we said the wrong thing two months ago, and that’s why our friend takes long to answer our messages now.
We have become so accustomed to worrying, that it has become second-nature. Who are we if we aren’t worrying? What do we do with that extra head space?
We see worrying as caring. If I care about someone, I’ll worry about them. If I care about my job, I’ll worry about it after working hours. Worry has become synonymous with care.
Worrying is not the same as care. Caring brings change. A change in a relationship, a change to ourselves when we practice self care, for example. Rumination and worrying are internalised, it does not promote change, it keeps us stuck.
Caring, is changing.
