One of the biggest regrets of the dying is that they wish they hadn’t worried so much – after all, no-one can change their circumstances by worrying about a particular situation so surely isn’t it better to go with the flow and see what happens?
I constantly find myself obsessing over details. I have to think over all the possibilities of a situation before I feel comfortable entering it – and even then it’s not that comfortable. What happens is, I automatically tell myself that if I think about something long and hard then I have more chance of coming up with a solution, but, in practice, that rarely happens. In reality, all it really means is I realise I’ve forgotten my house keys in advance, long before I get back to my front door.
