Worry Warted

Shadow Girl

"Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow."
- a random Proverb

Sometimes I am so obsessively worried about offending people! It's silly. It's ridiculous. I can feel myself obsessing about something small, but it's so hard to stop.

I have friends who are bold - really, really beautifully bold. They really are not concerned with what people think. They are loving. They are compassionate. But they don't live in constant fear that they said a wrong word or glanced a wrong direction.

I, on the other hand, WORRY CONSTANTLY about hurting people's feelings. It's good to be concerned, but I take it too far. I really want to work on this.

How about you? Do you worry about offending people, even when there is truly no reason to be concerned? Are you bold? If so, what inspires your gusto?
