What Worries You, Masters You

John Locke said, “What worries you, masters you.” Worrying is not the way to go in our lives. We worry too much. We worry about things that will never happen to us. If you have something going on in your life, worrying about it won’t help you. It will hurt you. It is okay to think about your problems, but not worrying yourself about it. If you want to solve a problem, don’t worry about it, think about it.

Life is full of stress. But you must do everything within your power to manage it. Focus on what will make you happy. If you like to practice meditation, do more of it. If you like to read to calm yourself, do more of it. Just do what makes you happy. Do what makes you relax yourself, your soul. Because you are not here to worry, but to live your life. How you manage your life will make all the difference. Are you going to stop worrying yourself?

“What worries you, masters you.”-

John Locke
