Why is that a lot of people are worrying about things we can’t control. For example, for most people, gas prices are something that we can’t control. We see that the prices are going up, we go to work and complain to our co-workers about the gas prices but in the end when we need gas we go to the pump fill up and take it up the tailpipe. Another example is the violence in other countries. We see how it effects our economy and we find ways to cope with it but there really isn’t much we can do about it. Things that are out of our control is something that we just need to deal with and do our best not to let things get to us because worrying about something beyond our control is just extra stress obviously we do not need right now.
