“Worry is not a form of love.”

— Alan Cohen

The radio and TV version of the Jewish mother is all about the worry. There isn’t any single worry, there are always multiple worries, and it is her job to worry, so she is in charge. It is also a given from my own experience that to worry about someone is to love them, for if we didn’t worry about them, it would be as if we didn’t care.

If any of that makes sense to you, I think it is time to let it go. Worry is purely and simply fear. To fear is to worry. To worry is to fear. And where fear is, love is not interested in going. Many even pray for God or whatever they pray to will take charge and look over one and keep them from evil and all that is fear as well, but potentially there is someone or some deity that will absolve your fears. Good luck with that.

All of this is like taking a negative, giving it some more negative energy and then hoping with no confidence that it turns magically into a positive.

A better thought to consider is to begin with a positive. Believe in well-being, that things always work out perfectly, that the other knows what they need and I don’t need to be concerned. A better thought is to trust; to love; to care for; to celebrate.

When I was a teenager I remember the girls thinking that jealousy was a positive emotion and that to be jealous was to love or to care, but that is the same as worry.

If we are to believe in God, the Creator, the All-Mighty–to really believe–and then to not trust, that is to not really believe, but to hope instead. It is far better to believe it will be just fine than to worry about anything at all. Worry will never help achieve a positive result.

The Worrier Creates A Debris Field. Be A Lover Instead.
