What do you worry about?

    My family, but some times I feel like there's only so much I can do.

    I would love to say nothing, because my faith demands that worry is a useless emotion. So, I will say that I really try hard NOT to worry, but when I do, it is usually about money.

    Getting there, not knowing when.

    Money. We went from being fairly well off (not rich by any means, but being able to do what we wanted for the most part and not worry about it at the end of the month) to worrying if we will buy Charlie's medicine or pay the electric bill. Having a sick kid wiped out our savings, sent my partner (a SAHM) back to work, cut back on all our little 'luxuries' and sent us into a financial tailspin. I got my cell phone bill yesterday and they billed me $15 for shipping a new phone when the old one broke (and didn't tell me they were charging me and refuse to reverse the charge) and I have no clue where we're going to come up with that fifteen dollars.
    I know it's 'only' money, and there are bigger things. Of course I worry about Charlie's health and worry with every new bump and blister that we're going to land back in the hospital. A simple cold makes another kid have a sore throat... might land my kid in the hospital or worse.
    So those are the two things I worry about, both tied so intimately together. I worry about my child getting sick, and I worry about how to afford to keep him healthy.

    I worry about being alone and never knowing what direction to take with my life.

    I worry that I will lose my temper or carelessly say something hurtful to people. I am start in to learn to pay attention to what I am getting ready to say, but I am starting to notice that I do it a lot. I am worried that I cannot work this out on my own. I will probably need to get some help.

    Now I am worried that trying to get help will make it difficult to find someone who has the skills / knowledge to really help me improve myself.

    Everything. Too much.

    My grades. I obsess about them for some reason or another.

     
  • At 12:20 PM, Blogger Bellarosa said…

    I worry about not meeting goals and standards set by both myself and society.

     
  • At 12:37 PM, Blogger Mind Sprite said…

    I worry about money and not being able to ever dig myself out of debt. I worry about not making anything out of myself and not living up to my potential. I worry about forgetting something important and letting other people down.

    Now I'm worried that I worry too much!

    Finding a new job, making enough money. I worry that I'm slowly losing my independence by being married.

    I am "mindful" for a balanced living, the well being of loved ones, particularly "the precious one", of all friends and acquaintances... Peace, fairness and political and economic stabilty around the world for all. The care and preservation of all living things...

     
  • At 1:41 PM, Blogger JB said…

    the unknown about what I'm supposed to be doing and where I fit into my so called life.

     
  • At 1:44 PM, Blogger Unbalanced said…

    everything from kids to money!

     
  • At 1:45 PM, Blogger nancy =) said…

    peace...

     
  • At 1:50 PM, Blogger Oh, that girl. said…

    Loosing my husband - cause then I would not only loose my best friend and life partner, but I would also never get to see my Step sons again and I love them more than anything.

     
  • At 2:12 PM, Blogger AKH said…

    An easier question would be what don't I worry about.

    I guess my main worry is that I will never find a job that makes me want to get up in the morning. :)

     
  • At 2:30 PM, Blogger Kristi said…

    Ugh, where to begin? My son, when I'll work out next, how much I'll eat today, time, money...I'm sure the list could be endless.

     
  • At 3:49 PM, Blogger bjk said…

    Money...all the flippin time....money

     
  • At 3:52 PM, Blogger Pandora said…

    I used to worry about money all the time. Now I don't have to WORRY about it ... but I have so much debt that it is always in the back of my mind. But thankfully I'm not struggling anymore, just hate thinking about the debt.

    Anything and everything. From whether the madiera cake I baked yesterday was too dry or whether I'll ever get this dissertation done. Mainly, I worry that I won't get through this degree; that I'm not very smart; that my parents are going to die before I have children; should I have children or that I'm going to be alone and a drifting, directionless slacker. You wouldn't think that from this list that I'm a hopeless optimist would you? Generally, I try not to worry, I find it a waste of time.

    Money (getting deeper in debt the more classes I take), school (grades and study time), my marriage (finding time to be together), job (biding the time until I graduate and can get a new one), sleep (I really need to sleep more)...

    money. my back. my teeth. moving. my mom's moving situation. work. my relationship. my mental health. my siblings.

    everything.

    too bad i can't get paid for worrying. it would be a lucrative job.

    Running out of time and dying before I get to do most of the things I want to do or try. It's going too fast already, I'm enjoying the ride, but I want it to slow down!

    Cheers,

    I worry about money. I worry about not spending enough time with my kids and I worry about leaving this world without everyone I love knowing it.

    Family (car accidents, planes crashing, heart attacks; you name it)and money.

    Too much of everything..It's never ending.

     
  • At 11:55 AM, Blogger Blondie said…

    Just about everything.

     
  • At 9:08 AM, Blogger DayDreamer said…

    I have issues with anxiety and so I tend to worry alot about everything. I worry that I'm a disappointment to myself and others, I worry about the health of those I love and have a immobilising fear of losing my mother, I worry that I won't be able to have kids and that my lie will be empty.

    Mostly I worry that I'll always worry this much.

    The not-so-distant future is what worries me the most. Events in the world can be overwhelming. I worry if I'll ever be what I am suppossed to be or if the me that I am now IS what I'm suppossed to be. There is more to life than money, so I don't worry about it. I pray, give to charity and forget about it.
