Worrying?

Worrying?

This came to my mind yesterday. I can't live today , for worry about the past and the future. Anybody else?

A counselor once told me if you live in the past or the future you have no today. If you have no today, you have no life. You cannot change the past so you should stop thinking and worrying about it. You cannot predict what will happen in the future so you shouldn't worry about that either. Take one day at a time. Yes, I, too used to fret over the past and worry constantly over the future, but I realized there is nothing to be done about it. You can only have this moment in time. Right now. You are living it whether you are "living it" or not..so make it the best moments you can.

Worrying to me is like breathing. I worry constantly. I was going to say I don't worry that much about the past. Certainly not nearly as much as I do the future. But I do worry about the past. What I said to someone; did they take it wrong;
Idk what to do about it. Like I said I've been this way my whole life. I hear you about worrying that is.

That’s me. I’m always ruminating about my past decisions. I’m able to worry about my future, but it’s always negative worry and rarely is it positive thinking. I hardly EVER think about the present. I know that the foundations of mindfulness is living in the present and being mindful is supposed to help if you’re depressed, but I don’t see the point in being mindful and cherishing the present if I feel like my present situation sucks lol.
