There’s a fundamental difference between planning and worrying.
Planning is constructive and focuses on our own actions in a conceptual future, while worrying is trying to control the uncontrollable by repeating possible and even unrealistic scenarios over and over again.
Our worries can even consist of fantasies that are totally out of touch with reality. Therefore, as opposed to planning, it’s destructive.
Nevertheless, we keep worrying because, for some reason, we think that this is going to help us in one way or another. Unfortunately, worrying generally does more harm than good.
