1

Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength, it is moving into tomorrow ahead of time.

Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.

Some things are worth worrying about in advance, but many times, we spend too much energy worrying about things that just aren't worth worrying about.

2

We have to allow everyone the dignity of their own discomfort.

Sometimes, fixing someone else's problem is not really the fix, but allowing them to be in their pain can be the better path to healing.

Often we have to go through the pain and struggles of healing to properly move forward, and simply having it changed or fixed for you may just be a temporary bandaid.

Anger is a secondary emotion, often a mask to cover for other emotions.

The goal is to never feel angry, but to understand your anger and choose a healthy way to respond to it.

Anger often is a mask for fear, and people hide behind it because it's often easier to hide behind anger than it is to really be vulnerable and open up.
