Wilson Chandler is one of the deepest, most philosophical tweeters on the Denver Nuggets. This week, he proved that with the following:
How much better would our lives be if we never worried about the things that we couldn't control? I know that in my life, most of the things I worry about I can't control. So why do we stress and obsess over them as though we can? I think sometimes it's our way of trying to prepare ourselves for the worst case scenario. It's our way of making us feel as though we have some control over the uncontrollable. Regardless, Chandler is right. Worrying does absolutely nothing in most cases, other than cause unneeded stress and anxiety. But for something that's so bad for us, it sure is hard to stop. To relate this to the Nuggets, I'm constantly worried while watching the games even though I know the result is going to be the same whether I stress out or don't even watch.
While there are some things in life that we can't control but we should definitely be aware of and even worry about, a lot of our worries are insignificant and should be cast aside. However, as Chandler says, that's easier said than done. That doesn't mean we can't try, though.
