I Worry And Worry And Worry

I worry about everything.

Even though I know I worry too much, I can’t help it. I am a worrier. Always have been, always will be.

I worry and worry and worry. Sometimes to the point where it’s unhealthy.

Let me throw out a random, somewhat trivial example. Every time I send an email and don’t get a response, I worry that the receiver hasn’t gotten my email. Unfortunately, people tend to read my emails but for some reason, choose not to reply to them. (Thanks a lot. I wish you knew how stressed out this makes me feel.) I worry until I can somehow confirm they have indeed received my message.

It seems like all I ever do is worry.

  1. It’s hard not to worry. I do the same thing. I worry over everything and over nothing. You just have to take a step back sometimes and ask yourself, “is this really a big deal?”

  2. Here’s a song for you that I wrote a long time ago:
    This is True (Don’t worry about it)

    The first time I went to my friend

    All worried out that day

    I told him ‘bout my troubles that

    Just wouldn’t go away

    I said to him, I’m troubled mate

    All worried in the head

    But lots of people feel that way

    So this is what he said

    (Chorus)

    This is true

    Don’t worry about it

    These things seem to happen all the time

    This is true

    Don’t worry about it

    Do something else instead and get it

    All out of your mind

    *

    Well I could see the sense in that

    So that’s just what I’ll do

    I knew I could count on my friend

    All that he said is true

    I went home and did something else

    Just anything I could find

    And soon I drove that worrying crap

    Right out of my mind

    (Repeat Chorus)

    *

    After that it seemed a while

    Before I worried again

    When I did I simply went

    And told all to my friend

    I said to him, I’m troubled mate

    All worried in the head

    But lots of people feel that way

    So this is what he said

    (Repeat Chorus)

    *

    Well I could see the sense in that

    So that’s just what I’ll do

    I knew I could count on my friend

    All that he said is true

    I went home and did something else

    Just anything I could find

    And soon I drove that worrying crap

    Right out of my mind

    (Repeat Chorus)

    *

    Many years have come and gone

    And some things never change

    A different place; another friend

    But things are rearranged

    She says to me I’m worried Kev

    All worried in the head

    But words of wisdom never die

    So here’s what I said

    (Repeat Chorus)

    *

    She looks at me and then she said

    Hey, that makes sense to me

    I always knew that you would be

    A real good friend for me

    She went home and did something else

    Any old thing she could find

    And soon she drove that worrying crap

    Right out of her mind

    (Repeat Chorus)

    *

    So now my friends I hope you’ve realized

    What I’m trying to say

    Don’t just go on worrying

    There is another way

    I share these words of wisdom

    That I first learned from my friend

    Lots of people feel that way

    Get over it!

    The end.
