I believe silence creates a cycle. With empathic and collaborative therapy, we break the cycle. I help clients feel validated and supported passed anger, shame, and anxiety.

Its normal to worry. We worry cause we're worried about our past and anxious for our future. Everyone has had that time in their lives when they stop to think that nothing seems to be working for them. Its good cause it enables us to make necessary changes, like changing the battle plan so we can get our objectives done sooner. Now the thing is, it becomes pathological when you start thinking of the future and past and dwell too long in it that you cant get urself out of it. A simple method would be to sit down, think of just 1 thing that worries you. Focus on that 1 thing, think about if it can be changed or modified, if not, let it go, and u need to try to never think abt it again cos uve already gavt that "worry" its due time. It neednt bug you again. Now if its the futurrme that worries you, theres always a bright side where you make plans on how youre ready for whats to come and how you would handle it. Sounds easy, its not. Hence the reason why they say its difficult for man to live a non social life. Use that and talk to a friend. Theyll help clear our mind better. Unless youre into meditation and yoga. In that case answers come boundless. Just Breathe. :-)

Over protective parents may tend to raise worriers or if you worried about your parents as a child you may continue to worry into later life............Worry is a learned pattern of behavior which can come from your family or peers,.........

Worrying can be a sign of many things, mainly it's because you are anxious about something etc. When worrying it is best to breath deeply, and vent to someone you trust.

Worrying a lot can also be anxiety. It's normal to worry, but excessively, not so much. Most of the time, the things we worry about will never happen! Its all tricks to the mind, so what you need to do is go on a hike, drink some tea, take a nap and a bubble bath. RELAX! You got this.

You may have general anxiety disorder, but it's hard to tell without context. Try seeing a therapist or talking to a specialist about the specifics of your individual case :)

Some of us are just natural worriers and don't even realize it yet on the other hand anxiety can cause excessive worrying that does not allow us to relax. It takes up all of our brain space. Imagery and doing something you enjoy can ease the worrying sometimes.try to replace bagging thoughts with positive ones

It's normal to worry and to a certain point it's also a good thing, because it means that you're reflecting on yourself and your actions and that you think through your plans, but you should care that it's not crossing a certain line. If you feel really worried, just take a small break, breath deeply and try to focus on the main things. Take small steps and you'll achieve your goals for sure and all of your worries will vanish.

Well, it could be because of anxiety. Sometimes anxiety causes us to worry about so many things, a lot of the time, even when it's not practical.

Because you want everything to be perfect and you don't want to disappoint no one, you are very sensitive and you hate bad things happening to you or to the people around you.

You're not living in the present. You worry about the future and the past, all things you have no control over. Breathe deeply and force yourself to be present.

Sometimes you just can't help but worry about things. There's a lot of pressures that individuals face on a daily basis and that can lead to some worrying or anxiety. A little worrying is totally okay! Sometimes when things get a little too overwhelming though the worrying can take over you. Remember that these pressures and stresses don't have to control you. Take a deep breath and try to take a step forward. I know it's tough, but you can do it I promise!

We can not know what will life bring to us 1 second later and yet, we should bare in mind that human being has become to earth to die one day. As far as any of us is not immortal and do not know what is going to happen tomorrow, we should always be hopeful and calm towards life. Yes we've been passing hard paths and life is hard we need to survive but everything we've been doing so far is to achieve happiness one day. If we do not know how to be happy and get away from anxiety and worries as far as we can, how could we even survive in a world with 7.53 billion people' To summarize yes we feel worried sometimes but nothing is more important to be happy and all we need to look for is happiness.

Sometimes, too much worrying may be a sign of stress, fear and anxiety. Here are few things that have been helping me overcome this: 1. Start being conscious about the times when you find yourself worrying about something. 2. Write down, verbatim, what you are worried about. For example, you can start with "I am worried about.....", or "I fear that....". You may be worrying about more than one thing, and that's only natural. Remember you are just looking out for yourself here, and you are the best person to do that! 3. Many times, It so happens that all our worries are sometimes interlinked in some way or the other, and we do not realize it. So once you've noted down all that has been causing you to worry, try to see see if any or all of them are interconnected. 4. Once you establish the interconnections, start drawing a hierarchy or a flowchart of your worries - this will help you to establish a clear-cut understanding of which aspects of your life have been causing you distress and adding to your worries. The above practice has helped me identify what has been causing me to worry so much and why. This also helps me quickly identify solutions and put my worries to rest. For some of us, our circumstances may be such that the solution itself is a tough one to decide on and implement as it might cause us or our loved ones some emotional pain as a consequence. And for some others, there might be a lack of clarity in arriving at a solution itself. In such cases, we may have to seek help from a trusted source, and remember, there is no harm in doing that. You are never alone! :) I hope my answer helps someone in need.
