We were born with characters deeply built inside us. We were built with a hardware(body) and a software(mind), and we’ve been supplied with the zest of living(spirit).
Our hardware is something we can see, touch, feel, look at, study easily, and we can break and make(fix it). Our software is more complicated because it is very much sophisticated. Each one of us is born with a fully designed and nicely calculated “software”, but the designer just wanted that software not to be ideal. We are born with an artefact inside us. No one among us is “perfect”. Perfection is not a human character, but perfection is the Creator’s character.
What is then about us human creatures?. It is a legible and logic question that all of us need to ask ourselves, and ask others about. We need as well to find an answer to this kind of question.
No one of us is perfect. We all have good and bad characters inside us, but that is not something we need to worry about. Everything in our creation was based on a perfect calculation. We were not born perfect for us to think about us… about our race as humans, and about our faculties as individuals. The time we start thinking is the time we discover and find out some other ways for us to live in peace with each other, and with other creatures sharing this planet with us.
Here comes us with us… each one of us with others, and with their own selves. It is in essence, I with me, and it is me with you. It is us with others i.e us with us !!. It does sound complicated, but take it from me… it is not complicated at all. We just need to think and to wonder… we need to ponder no doubt.
Now, I will return to the subject I am talking about. Our worries, anxieties, stresses, strains, tensions, overreactions, etc. Why we worry and why we strain ourselves?. It is in my view, and in my thinking, very much normal for us human beings to be worried about things…. to be worried about now, then, and the future. We need to worry ,so, we can prepare ourselves to the worst. So, we can plan in advance, and we can avoid what is avoidable.
Normal daily worries and anxieties are normal for us, but when things go beyond normal limits, they just get into an area out of our control as individuals and as a group.
Worry and Stress
In a very simple way, I would say worry is normal, and stress is abnormal. Worry is a protective measure and can be very healthy. However, stress is when we are unable to deal with our worries.
