Chinese Finger Trap

Chinese Finger Trap

Worry, panic, fear, these wonderfully sucky emotions creep into our lives on a daily or weekly basis. We obsess over stupid crap that isn’t going to matter in a few minutes.

“Did I wear the right shirt today?”

“Wait, did I forget my umbrella?”¬†

Stupid, little things that don’t matter. We over react constantly. Why worry? So what, if your shirt doesn’t match perfectly? Who actually cares? In ten years are you going to care that you left your umbrella in the car and had to walk in the rain? No. You aren’t even going to really mind in ten minutes. So why worry? Well guys and dolls, it’s the human condition. We are genetically designed to worry about everything. The wrong things. We fret about high school and whether or not we bought our shirts from the right store. And GOD FORBID that popular girl in 5th period whispered at you. And “I swear is that guy looking at me? Tell me! OMG IS HE?” Because really, it matters. I know. I know. I’m crazy and confused. It’s totally relevant to life. Except not. Kids, we worry and worry over nothing. I’ll leave you with this. I say it all the time.

My life is like a Chinese finger trap. If I’d just calm down and stop¬†panicking everything would be okay.
