Spending time thinking and worrying about things you have no control over is like training a cat to talk.
It’s a complete waste of time and energy.
Because thinking and worrying about those things won’t make any difference.
If you can’t do anything about it, every day, every hour, every minute, every second that you spend thinking and worrying about it is a complete waste.
Think about it: if you can’t do anything about it, is there any amount of thinking or fretting that will make any difference? It’s a futile exercise, devoid of any benefit.
All it does do is cause a negative feedback loop, and makes you more stressed and worried.
It won’t be easy, not thinking and worrying about stuff.
But it can be done.
Here’s how you can get started:
Find something else to focus on, something that will benefit you, or even something that will take your focus away. Go out with friends.
Read a book.
Learn something new.
Spend the time doing something that will benefit you.
Even better, spend the time helping others – now that is a worthwhile use of time.
Thinking and worrying about things you have no control over is a colossal waste of time and energy.
Wean yourself off this habit.
Your life will be better for it.
