We are met with many challenges from the time we wake up in the morning until the time we go to bed at night. Granted, each individual has his or her own set of challenges. Just pause for a moment and think about the many challenges we face in a single day. These challenges have the potential of causing us to worry. In fact, we could make a never-ending list of all the worries or concerns we face everyday.
What’s on your list?
No matter what’s on your list, we are all trying to decrease the number of worries on our list. All of us would love to be worry-free.
A Way of Life
I hear many people saying, “No worries.” I even use the phrase myself. However, do we really mean “No Worries?”
Sometimes this phrase is used just like the response we give to the question of “How are you doing?” Without thinking, I hear many people respond quickly with a “Fine” or an “Alright.”
Worrying is to be anxious or uneasy about something. To worry also means to disturb one’s peace of mind.
So next time you use the phrase “No worries.” Ask yourself the question, “Do I Really Mean “No Worries?” Ask yourself if you really mean that you have no concerns or troubles.
In the Australian culture, this phrase is widely used in their conversations. It represents the feeling of friendliness, good humor, optimism, and “mateship.” If you are going to use this expression, just make sure your behavior coincides with your use of the expression. Make it a way of life.
Stop and Think
I’m not suggesting for you not to use the phrase “No worries.” Just think about it if you are going to use it. We can’t say “No worries,” but then visibly we show signs through our behaviors or actions of being stressed or concerned.
If you are going to use the phrase “No worries.” Then whatever you are dealing with, please let it go. Don’t pick it back up. Let the expression resonate through your smile, in spite of the situation you are going through.
Lastly, when you use the expression “No worries,” it is not only for your benefit. Others should feel that everything is going to be alright. Next time you say “No worries,” stop and think about if you truly feel that way.
