How to be a person who doesn't worry? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I worry about a lot of things, generally about boys and what i've done on nights out.

    For example the other night i had a one night stand (which i have never done before) and have worried for three days STRAIGHT. I just want to be a care-free 20 year old who obviously will make mistakes but know i am not worthless and will never find anyone because of some of my silly actions?

    Everyone says i appear so 'chilled' but when they get to know me they're like wow you worry a lot…

    You should try to put your past events down to experience. Learn from them and think positively of outcomes, if you think that something bad will happen all the time then that's not a good mindset.

    We all make mistakes, I've made quite a lot but I don't let them get to me because it made me a better person and that's how you should see it too.

    I'm a lot like you to be honest. I worry about past and present all the time.. But what helps me is physical activity, since I started doing sports I worry a lot less. I kind of channel that nervous energy into my sports and I am way calmer afterwards. I'm also trying to control my overthinking a bit more through focusing on my breathing. which sometimes works wonders. The only problem you have is in your head, not in your past, trust me.
