Noun: a person who cheats or tricks others by persuading them to believe something that is not true.
Worry masquerades as wisdom offering us a chance to solve all our problems or at least “feel” like we are solving them. In actuality, all we’re really doing is buying a property that we’re convinced is beautiful and will be “the answer”, only to find out it’s just an empty wharehouse and we have nothing to show for all the “work” we put in.
Worry promises us the world, but we wake up one day realize that our time, creativity, and energy are all gone.
So there are two questions:
- Why does it seem easier to worry in the first place?
- How do we catch ourselves before it’s too late?
