There are many reasons why people worry. Worrying in small amounts can be helpful because it can keep you focused or remind you to do things. Worrying constantly and feeling other negative emotions simultaneously is not good and can cause stress and even manifest itself in physical ailments. Sometimes worrying can actually be a symptom of a bigger problem. Try and peel back all the layers of what you're worrying about and examine the situation. Sometimes looking at things from a rational and logical perspective rather than an emotional one can ease your mind and lessen the need to worry about things. But try to remember that you're not alone. Many people suffer from depression and anxiety and worry constantly about major and trivial things alike. Life is very difficult. Humans have developed a lifestyle that involves high stress, seemingly unobtainable standards, asinine policies, and intolerances towards people who are "different". The life of an average person is incredible stressful. You are expected to be working and laboring and toiling and rushing and living up to societal standards your whole life. That's a lot to ask from a person! So take a moment and breath deeply. You deserve it. When you think about all of the responsibilities that have been placed on you and expected of you, it's ok to feel some worry. The good news is that there are definitely methods and techniques available to help cope with worrying. Many are available for free. Whenever you feel a surge or worry, try to think to yourself, "I'm dealing with a lot right now, and this is my brain being overloaded. There's nothing wrong with me, I just need to deal with each small obstacle and accomplish each small goal as it comes."

Thoughts- When I feel worried or stressed I sit down and make a list of things that are on my mind.

Thinking too much in a negativity coupled environment makes you worry too much. Think about good things.

I am always worried as I care about the people around me so much that I never want them to be hurt emotionally or physically without me knowing.

Because you aren't thinking at all about what's going on RIGHT NOW. Stop worrying about next week, and start being concerned with this very second.

There could be a few reasons why you are worried. It could be that you are afraid that something bad will happen to you or that you are naturally anxious person and the reasons behind that anxiety could be locked away in your unconscious.

Maybe you are suffering from stress overload or just anxiety, try to relax, ease your mind. Maybe try meditation?

This is a very common question that I have heard many times. Usually the reasons are because you may feel threatened by a certain issue(s) . You need to be able to let yourself go, and think to yourself "why not" instead of "what if". You need to try and rise above and face all your fears and just show the world that you are an independent strong girl/guy . I promise you, that this will help, even if you don't see yourself as someone who is courageous, try and push yourself to think that way, because then you will eventually grow into it, and you will be this new person who isn't always worried or who was many anxieties .

People are often worried for many different reasons. Often from a stress in your life or an unsolved problem

I tend to worry about a lot of things that I shouldn't be wasting my energy on. I've gotten much better in the past couple of years though. I worry about things at work all the time. I've learned though that you can't sweat the small stuff and there's no real reason to blow up or worry yourself crazy until you have all the facts. If you're in a tizzy, and find out that the issue you were worried about had absolutely nothing to do with in point... I tell my cousin all the time when she starts going off about something that's, you guessed it, not an issue at this moment to save the drama for your mama!!

Personally I tend to overthink things too much which is counter productive. And you may be worried all the time because you're worried someone you like doesn't like you back, worried that the person you love will leave you. These are examples that I've experienced myself

I am always worried because I'm insecure. I've always been that. Whether about my looks or my performance at college or my dating history, I've always been very conscious. But I need not be. Confidence changes everything. It changes our lifestyle 200%. Just look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself how great you are. Be a better person attitude-wise,not superficially. You deserve a lot of things in life,don't let insecurities take them away from you.

Events that take place in our lives, leave us with feeling afraid. This can be learnt behaviour from family, friends and our environment.

You are worried that bad things can come true or if an event occurred and you don't want it to re-occur so you get worked up in the moment trying to find solutions to stop it.

One of the reasons is capability and comparison with peers. Fear of failure could be another point. Thought prevailing on success against failure....
