S:0465 Distinction: Care About vs. Worry

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)

 

You can care very much about an outcome without worrying about it. Worry is a condition you have been normed to, but it is not normal to worry.

It is normal to care about. When you care about something you are interested in it, you find yourself working toward it, and there can be harmony of action.

When you worry, there is suffering and uncertainty. It s draining. You lose sleep and experience no satisfaction.

Care about — with passion! — your relationships, your work, your finances, your health, your spirit. Be in action toward the outcomes you want. Just don t waste energy worrying about them.
