I am not a worrier. I have never been the one to brood even as a child. I was called happy go lucky when I was young and as I grew older, I took life in my stride with all its disappointments, accolades and ups and downs. My mantra is let life flow and I genuinely believe in it.
So while I don’t pay too much attention to it, I do worry like any other human. My biggest worry is having to live my life without my family, especially my parents. While it is a natural phenomenon of children outliving their parents, I worry about that as I can’t imagine my life without them being present.
Losing my loved ones is my biggest worry being the highly emotional and sensitive person that I am. So while I go on my life, this small niggling thing remains in my mind. I know it will happen inevitably at some point in my life and I will have to bear it but I am using all this time to brace and prepare myself for it.
One of my previous bosses used to say “control the controllable” and that is what I practice to keep these worries away.
