My worrying is useless

I came across this beautiful quote from Anne Patchett’s memoir “Truth
and Beauty” on the Happiness Project blog:

“I knew then it was just too enormous for me to manage and that
worrying about her would swamp me. If I was swamped by worry, I would
be useless to her. It was even possible that I would desert her, and
that was the thing that could never happen. I decided that night I
would take all the hourts of my life that could so easily be spent
worrying and instead I would try to help her.”

That’s it. That makes sense. I can’t afford to feel all down about
myself, boohoo, I’m living in two worlds and all of that. Not when I
can take that time and that energy and do something *wonderful.*
