5 Major Reasons Worry is Useless



Although you’d love to worry less, you mostly find yourself worrying about everything. You worry about losing your loved ones, lacking money, failing to get a promotion, and many other things.

You worry because you focus on the negative side of life, and you are unaware that worry is useless because of the following reasons:

1.You Don’t Know Everything About the Future

Worrying implies that you know everything that will happen in the future. However, there are high chances that you haven’t reached the level of consciousness that allows you to know what will happen in the future. For this reason, your worry is founded on assumptions or beliefs based on past experiences, and you don’t know whether they (assumptions & beliefs) are accurate because you don’t know everything about the future.

2.You Might Die Tomorrow

You don’t know when you’ll die because death is unpredictable. You can die in the next moment or tomorrow while crossing the road or driving to work. Worrying is thus useless because you might be worried about a future that might arrive when you are dead.

3. The Future is Unpredictable

You worry because you believe life will happen according to your predictions. However, life is always changing. The social, political, and economic environment is constantly changing, and there are high chances your predictions are false. Besides this, although bad things can happen tomorrow, good things can happen regardless of what is happening in your life right now because the future is unpredictable.

4.The Only Reality is Now

The future is unreal because it doesn’t exist outside your mind. It’s only real in your imagination, which is based on your subjective understanding of life. The only reality you can experience is ‘the now’ because you’ll always exist in ‘the now.’ For this reason, worrying about the future is useless.

5.Worry Doesn’t Change Anything

You can’t change your situation by constantly worrying about it.


Focus on how you can create a desirable future, instead of focusing on anxious thoughts. Shift from worry to faith by realizing that your life force materializes your dominant thoughts. Let worry alarm you, but don’t dwell on it. Trust that everything will fall into place and realize that you have the power to create your ideal future.

    Very true,worry adds nothing to our lives but robs our joy…..
    When I read Mathew 6,I no longer worry about anything and if it happens I cast my care to Him who created me and trust Him to take care of it.
