"Don't You Worry Your Pretty Little Mind; People Throw Rocks at Things That Shine"

Have you ever had something happen to you that completely changes you? You can't help it but it does. It changes the way that you think, and what you expect out of other people. We begin to overgeneralize how every single person or thing is going to be based on something that happened long ago. Something that happened to you and now that you think it's going to happen again.
It's safe to say that all of my reactions are a consequence of something that happened to me. We've come to expect things based on a cycle of things that have happened to us previously? But, to overcome them, we often wonder what the hell did we do to deserve them? We have to wonder why something happened to us. Sometimes, it's enough to keep us awake at night, and our stomachs turning and tying themselves in knots. Worry can consume us, and turn us into crazy people.
The million dollar question is why do we worry?
Well, there's no concrete clear answer to that. However, I can say honestly that we worry because we expect some sort of abstract consequence or experience some sort of pain. We worry because we think that somethings going to happen and there's no probability that it actually will. The source is unknown, but the answer is clear. There is no way to prevent it. It's a part of life. The only answer to all of this is to not worry at all.
If only it were that simple. Of course you can't tell someone not to worry. That makes them worry more!
What I've found out to be is that the more you worry, the only thing that gets hurt is yourself. I believe that God has created a story for me, written in stone, and his path to be clear. If it's meant to be, then it would be. Therefore, there's no sense worrying about it.
Okay, so I'm offically Yoda.
