Don't Worry, Be Happy
"Don't worry, be happy"I dislike and disagree with this phrase really rather a lot. Why? Worries are always there; there is always some situation or person in life that brings up anxieties and worries. To have worries is to be normal. You cannot make them go away.Likewise, you cannot control your thoughts, and our worries are thoughts. Just as you cannot control the situations around you, you cannot control your thoughts. Plus our brains are hardwired to notice negative things. It's what has kept us alive as a species. If something sucks, and you're having negative thoughts about it, trying desperately to have positive ones instead, or beating yourself up about it just makes it all the more painful.
