Let’s make an acquaintance with Mr. Worry, who happened to have an adventure through a rich man’s mind, after he saw the bank robbery news at the television.

“Hi, Mr. Worry, where are you going?”
Mr. Worry answers the writer’s question softly, almost whispering, “I am going to go through his mind, without being notified. Don’t make a noise. Please come with me if you are willing to”.

Then, we walk together into that man’s mind.

Mr. Worry starts to put a negative thought into his head.
“Don’t just sit here. Your money is on that bank. How can you stay still and act as if nothing happened to your wealth?”

The man begins to think about his money he kept in the bank. He is afraid if he lost all his savings. He walks here and there nervously and bites his lips. Rather sweaty.

Now he is thinking about how difficult he earns and saves that money. Then he is acting as if he has become bankrupt already.

Knowing that his reaction is just as what he wants, Mr. Worry continues to provoke him until finally he collapses of a heart attack.

Mr. Worry looks at his accomplishment with a very wide and big grin, full of satisfaction.
“Come on, let’s find another victim” says Mr. Worry to me.

Then, he goes as fast as a flash, leaves me alone here.

Thinking about my short adventure with Mr. Worry, I consider him to be categorized into a kind of virus which can weaken human being.
Actually, the robbery case is not as tremendous as he thought. However, as the worrying has already filled his mind, it is only getting his attention away from the real life focus.

What is Worry? I think every human in the world knows it.
Even a kid has already had this worry

According to Wikipedia, Worry is thoughts and images of a negative nature in which mental attempts are made to avoid anticipated potential threats.
Usually this kind of emotion caused an anxiety in our life.

I remember a statement in the Bible, it is written that your worry will not add even a single day of your life.

“Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years.
If something is wrong, fix it if you can.
But train yourself not to worry: Worry never fixes anything."
Ernest Hemingway

Just like the above story, Mr. Worry kept giving you a stress that weakens you until a level that you can’t bear anymore.

Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do,  but it doesn't get you anywhere.

I have ever read a poem about worry.
There are two days that we should not worry, those are: Yesterday and Tomorrow.
Yesterday .
Yesterday has already passed, and even all the money in the world cannot bring it back.
It is gone forever.          
We shouldn’t worry about the past.

Tomorrow has its promise and burdens, but it is beyond our control.
Why should we trouble our life with it?

Actually people only worries about the bitterness that happened yesterday, and the fear that may come tomorrow.

If I may conclude, Worry will only tremble, weaken, and even ruin us. Worry does not make any benefit to our life.

It is better for us to throw away the worry and pessimist mind, and only keep the happy and optimist one along our life.
