I am prone to worrying. I sometimes calling it "thinking" in order to make myself feel better, but often it is actually worrying. Worrying is a kind of anxiety. My friend and and career coach Diane Costigan once said to me that we feel anxiety when we don't know what will happen and we fear that we cannot handle it. Then she went on to ask me if anything had ever happened that I didn't handle. She didn't ask me if I handled it well, only if I handled it. Of course, I have survived everything in my life (I am still alive!), so the answer was yes.
