☆  fret  心配する


This week’s useful phrase is, “Please don’t fret.” Meaning, please don’t worry. You might fret over something you have said to another person. In other words, you worry about how the other person feels about what you said.

When I was young, I said something horrible to my older sister… I fretted about it for YEARS!!! I was only 10 years old at the time. Finally, in my thirties (yes, 20 years later!!) I said sorry for saying that nasty thing to you. And she said, “What are you talking about? I don’t remember you saying that!” Oh my goodness!! 20 years of energy wasted fretting about something she didn’t even remember! Ha ha! I guess I should have said sorry sooner!
