Other people's worries can seem insignificant compared to one's own....
So I should use my imagination on this one? Hmm..
Pretty much anything from A to Z..
A 13 year-old girl wonders if Leonard or Ted likes her...whether she should wear the green pullover that matches the colour of her eyes to the class skate or not...did mom find the playboy - although that not so much since some kids are good at covering their tracks...
I think 13 year-old boys worry about their model airplane...and whether they'll get a BB gun for Christmas. Whatever that is.
A 73 year-old might worry about...children...yes, those kids, still...and now their kids...lol... Also death...although that's not exclusive to 73 year-olds...and falling. Elderly people seem to worry about falls a lot...
Now, a more PC term for "worry" is "concern".
Why do you say it isn't?
You might not come across it on Amirite but I use it in RL ALL the time.
I'm worried about going back to school. Instead: I have some concerns about going back to school.
"Worries" sound like issues but out-of-control, helpless ones, the type elderly people get....
"Concerns" sound like issues but manageable ones... everyone has them...
13: Grades,bf/gf,college,friends/popularity,weight, driving (relatively) soon, 73: health, money, family,legacy, afterlife or lack thereof?
Oh I ain't sure why anyone would waste time worrying. It don't change a gosh darn thing. I use to worry all the time. Today, I don't have any worries at all.
im 53 and I worry about...nothing
