Do Tell: What Did You Worry About for No Reason?

Back when we were younger, my girlfriends and I used to stress over the little things, which in hindsight, turned out to be a colossal waste of time! I know we weren't the only ones that overly analyzed the trivial things like tests, boys, even what to wear to our senior prom, so ladies, do tell, what did you used to fuss about that didn't merit all the time spent?

I have anxiety as it is, but lately I have really worried about my parents passing away. I know there's nothing I can do about it, but I can't help but think about it.

when i open my mouth to make a comment and the response is 'oh', i always worry that people think it's a stupid comment and thus, what is their opinion of me. it's just something that i cannot help stressing about no matter what people tell me or how i think of my own self esteem (which really isn't that low..)

Pinup--what do you do now? I hope I'm not prying but I need some hope! I'm so worried I'm not going to get into college and be a big monumental failure! My grades are average and what everyone keeps saying is that you have to be perfect and I am so NOT!

I think I was worried about not getting into a fantastic college right out of high school. I applied to so many schools and got rejected by them all. BY THEM ALL. I was horrified! Now that I look back I see that I gained so much more experience from NOT going to school that I am actually making more money than my friends that went to school and don't have work history.

i was petrified of someone breaking into my house when i was in high school. someone broke into my car when i was 16 (no where near my house, which was in a nice, crime-free neighboorhood, where that would never happen) and basically took anything that could be sold. they even took my crappy gym clothes! anyway, after that i was so paranoid about being alone at night and i always thought someone was lurking around just waiting to bust in... since i went to college and moved into my old place (basically, grew up) i don't think about that anymore. i just lock my doors and call it good.

i used to worry i would never get married, even back when i was as young as 4. My mom had a few unmarried friends when i was young and i used to feel so bad for them and wonder what was wrong with them. I used to pray everynight i wouldnt end up middle aged and unmarried. NOW i know thinking like that was totaly ridiculous, what a weird thing for a child to worry over. It must have been those 8 years of caholic school!! Ohh..and im STILL not married at 27 and it never crosses my mind.

Amanda-La - I used to worry about dying too. I couldn't sleep some nights because I kept seeing my bed as a casket and my room as a funeral home... it was really strange and I used to scream and have to go into my parents room because I couldn't get the thought out of my head. I think it was caused by the fact that my best friend was killed by a drunk driver when I was 10 years old and it traumatized me when I saw her at her funeral... I still think about her every day and it still frightens me

I used to worry that there was something wrong with me and I was going to die and I used to cry when I was five because I knew that me and my cousins were going to grow up and everything would change. I think that one was worth worrying over, it happened anyway but it was traumatic and I still get sad about it.

I used to (and still do) worry about my dad. He's just not the healthiest guy. I worry about everything, lots of times it's about my son.

I generally worry about a face or tone of voice somebody uses with me, expecially at work. I also worry about if somebody at work doesn't talk to me for a while and I wonder if I did something. It's silly, because I could just go and ask them if I did infact do something wrong.

I used to worry what people thought about me at work...but now I know they think I'm crazy...So I don't have to worry anymore lol... I dyed my hair the other day and had about 6 of them come up to me and tell me they didn't like it...they're all older than me so I didn't expect them to like it...but hey at least they're honest lol

i also worry about what people think about me at work. But i tell myself that they are thinking the same thing. I worry about sooooo much that i dont have the time to sit and write it all. My boyfriend dosent worry about anything. its a good balance.

Well, when I was really young - around 4 or 5 - I must have seen a movie that had me worried about getting married to someone who had a secret second career of robbing homes at night. I kept asking my mother how I could be sure the person I married wasn't a robber. And I would get upset because she always laughed! :D

i used to worry about my mother dying. My dad died when i was three and after that i was preoccupied by the thought of her dying too, I would just cry and cry about it. Now , not so much, although every once and awhile i find myself thinking about my life without her in it. My worries now? i worry about what people at work think about me, and money.

I used to worry that I was never going to get sad but true I was a late bloomer what can I say...haha but it was cause for many sleepless nights and baggy mens sweatshirts and t-shirts... I suppose it contributed to me becoming a skater punk in high school... I had an excuse to wear baggy oversized clothes...haha :D

When I first started driving, I used to worry all of the time that my car was going to break down or blow up. I think I saw The Pelican Brief one too many times.... Acutally, I still worry about my car breaking down on the side of the road.

When I was in grade school I used to get all bent out of shape about having wrinkles in my shirt. Not as in it needed ironing but literally I would have on a cotton jersey top, move around, it would get a wrinkle and I would get upset. :rotfl: Little mental, I was.

I worried that I would never fall in love. I worried that I would fail whatever grade came after the one I was in, especially going from high school to college.
