Like I Care

Worrying about things which are out of your control will just increase your stress and add to the grey hairs. The real problem of course is, it’s easy to say Oh you can’t control it so don’t worry about it, but when ‘it’ is something or someone you care about, it becomes difficult to stop worrying. Indeed, I think we’re probably biologically programmed to care and want to help people – if you’re in a tribal hunter-gatherer society surrounded by lots of dangerous Nature, everyone you know and see is family or extended family or friend, and if they’re in trouble it’s in everyone’s best interest to help them.
