Reduced To Pieces

We've all heard the term "worry-wart." I prefer to think of it as being concerned. I'll admit to some heavy worrying about things. I can't help it, it's just in me. I don't think we'd be human if we didn't worry/show concern about others. I think the person who never does worry could be considered a bit on the selfish side. Right now I'm worried about my friends. As a person who has this constant desire to help and do whatever I can to make everyone happy, I'm quite frustrated right now. I feel like nothing I say or do is the right thing. It makes me feel kind of broken inside.

I had a co-worker who said to draw a circle on a piece of paper. Inside that circle, write down everything that worries you.

Then, inside that circle, make a smaller circle. In that circle, write the things you can control.

These things in the smaller circle are those which we should worry about...the others will just give us ulcers.

Hope you're able to make any decisions you need to. Good luck!

I would strongly prefer that my friend would no longer have troubles, but that is out of my control, therefore, I will worry about that which I can change

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

You have the wisdom, you can get through this
