Why Do I Worry?

I worry way too much about what others think….why can’t I just speak my mind or think what I think and leave it at that? It is not about others…when it comes to my thoughts it is about me. Why do I worry what someone will think when I speak my mind? I do not go around saying things to upset others and I do take the time to try not to offend. I feel it is out of love for other people that I give them that respect, but why do I worry when I speak?

This is something that I truly need to work on.  I posted a comment on Twitter about Jeremiah 10:1-4 asking what it means (For the practices of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
4 They adorn it with silver and gold;). When I read that verse it made me question the practice of celebrating Christmas. I am curious what others think, what is wrong with that? I do not think anything is wrong with it and I do not think asking the question should offend anyone….quite the opposite, I think it gives an opportunity for others to talk about their beliefs. Is that a good thing? LOL Well, I am not looking to have any debates or arguments over the verse, I am only curious what others think or how others interpret the verse, it is a great time of year to ask the question.

So…why do I always worry what others will think?  I will let you know what kind of response I get from my question. Let’s see if my worry is unfounded!

Ok…I’m just rambling here…this is what I do when I worry!  LOL
