Is it normal to feel like if you stop worrying something bad will happen

I know it's kind of superstitious but I've felt this way since I was a kid that of I don't constantly think of the worst that's going to happen, and cry about it too, then it will happen. It is about people. I need to go to work right now but I can't stop crying and I feel like "if you stop that means you don't care and you will let them die because you didn't care". I know that's ridiculous but that's honestly how it feels.

Is It Normal?

  • To worry so much can put you to an early grave from the stress of it.

  • I have news for you: you're just not that powerful! Good and bad things will happen totally regardless of whether or not you worry about them.

    This is a very negative way to live and would be hard to change without help, so it's up to you whether you want your life to be more positive or not.

    • Thanks.. you're right it's a real waste of time and I lost a lot of sleep these past couple weeks over someone I'm pretty sure doesn't give half as much a crap. But I always worry the one time I'm not there for someone they will actually need it.

      • I'm glad you acknowledge worrying is a waste of time: it's also a waste of your LIFE! Please get some help with this ...... or not, if you want everything to stay the way it is.
