Don't Worry

Sometimes in life things get very uncertain. Something like cat on a wall. And for a while you worry what is gonna happen. Interestingly nothing might happen and yet we spend our time worrying. It is the fear that the society has instilled in us from childhood. After lot of contemplation you decide it not worth it and get on with other things in life.

But then people still continue to comfort you saying "Don't worry, everything will work out fine!". Agreed it is a moral support at a conscious level. But I wonder if all it would do is remind the person to worry :D. It kinda makes sure you don't forget to worry. He he.

What would it take to get over the fear driven attitude engraved as deep as our subconsciousness? I would wanna take a shot at it.

I agree and also go white when people tell me not to worry - for as you said, thats surely a way of being reminded that the problem remains!

Here is the defect in your arguement. You cannot impose logical foundation in an emotional world. Human emotions are foundamentally illogical. I can give you many example...let us take your current topic.

A is worried. B meets A. Three possibilites.

B remains silent. Now you can say B is bad because he is not soothing A.

B says Don't worry...B is bad because his saying does not make any difference to A but he is still saying.

B says Worry.... B is bad because he is telling something bad to do..

What should poor B do now?

B says what A wants to hear. By definition of emotion "worry", A has no mood to say what he wants to hear.

YOu can invent new option i can invent arguemetns against/for the option.

The foundamental point is that emotional world does not go with the logical world.

So do not make fun of ordinary emotions. They are just the way they are...

@anon: Sometime people just need to be heard. Not everything said warrants a response in a manner that solves a problem.

Why do you think A expect B to do anything at all. And why do you think A would think bad of B for saying nothing? That's a mighty assumption you've made there.

All am saying is that the feeling by itself is just a state of mind we've trained to get into by society. I am implying that most worries we put ourselves through only exists in our mind. Another figment of our imagination beyond our control which we've perhaps mistakenly come to term as instinct.

And btw, I don't know any dictionary that that says when in worry the person has no mood to say what he wants to hear. I'd say that's just your perception of worry :).

I wonder why you feel I made fun of an emotion here? What I said was just my pondering to understand an emotion. A view of though we don't often bump into. Am not taking a shot at it!

Anyway, so much logic over something illogical. Pointless.
