Why do we worry

In my previous article Where do emotions come from i said that emotions are indicators of the level of satisfaction of your subconscious mind with your actions.

The best way to understand emotions is to think of your subconscious mind as a friend who wants you to be the best and who knows no other method to motivate you other than the use of emotions. (see also How does the subconscious mind work)

Based on this concept the best way to deal with a certain emotion is to understand the intention the subconscious mind had when it sent it to you.

Worrying is no different than other emotions, its just an emotion that your subconscious mind sends you when it find that you have a weak faith!!

The reason behind worrying

Your subconscious mind wants you to be the best and as a result it sends you certain emotions when it finds you moving away from the right direction.

Worrying is just an emotion that your subconscious mind sends you in order to motivate you to strengthen your faith in whatever you believe in.

Here are some examples that will help you understand worrying perfectly:

  • When you have low faith in your plans: Lets suppose that you started a business and then suddenly you started worrying so much about its performance. In such a case your subconscious mind is trying to motivate you to do anything to strengthen your faith in your plans. Developing new plans, getting expert advice or educating yourself even more can help you increase the faith in your plans which is the thing you need to do to get rid of worrying
  • Weak faith in yourself: In the Solid Self confidence program i said that people worry about social situations when they don't have faith in their abilities and skills. If you don't know how to run a conversation then certainly you will feel anxious around strangers and you will worry about upcoming social events. In such a case building your self confidence and increasing your social skills will help you trust yourself more and ease your worrying
  • Lack of faith in God: If you believe in God then know that worrying about the future is a sign of a weak faith. In such a case your subconscious mind sends you the feelings of worrying in order to motivate you to increase your faith in God. The solution in such a case is finding more ways for increasing your faith in God (see also Does God really exist?).

Why do people keep worrying?

So if the problem of worrying is that simple then why do most people keep worrying for long periods of time?

Simply because they do nothing about it!! Their subconscious minds sends them strong signals in the form of worrying and they respond back with indifference and helplessness. That's why their subconscious mind never withdraws the signals and that's why those people keep worrying for long periods of time.
