Why did Peter and I create the Worry Buster?
Because we’ve met many people over the years who are worried about something. We wanted to develop a useful tool to help others begin to wean themselves from worry.
I grew up thinking I had a ‘worry gene’ since my grandmother and mother always worried. I remember chuckling with my sister as we grew up about how Grandma and Mom were always worrying about something. It was a way of life for them and became a way of life for me.
Later on, I wondered about the whole idea of worry. What was the point of worrying? It was always present in my life, but I could find absolutely no value or benefit from worrying. I never could find a benefit from the many things I worried about. I thought about this for several years.
It was after all the thinking about worry that I started to recognize I worried so much. I learned that worrying was supposed to somehow make things work out better!
Enter the Worry Buster. Every day we make a choice about what we want to spend time thinking about. How often do we consciously make the choice to worry? Usually, it just materializes and it’s not until we’re worried that we realize we chose to worry.
We worry because we want to change something and think we can’t. If we think we can’t change something, we feel powerless. We worry when we are powerless. Well, we can bust up the worry with the Worry Buster.
