☆ worry 心配する
What kinds of things do you worry about? Most people spend time worrying about the future and things that they think might happen. I’m guilty of doing this! That’s why I love this quote (which is attributed to Mark Twain):
“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”
This is a good reminder that most of the things we waste time worrying about never actually happen, so why waste time worrying about them in the first place? Of course, if you use that time to think of proactive solutions for the situation that you are worrying about, that is a much better idea. So if you have to speak English at meeting or even in your English lesson, and you’re worried about it, don’t waste time worrying, instead spend the time rehearsing what you’ll need to say.
Oh, I’ve been worrying that you didn’t see my other emails about the 2016 Eigo Techo being on sale now, so here’s the link again… phew, now I can stop worrying. 😉
