"How's that working for you?" asks Dr. Phil.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.

Everyone has problems, big or small.  How the problems are handled is how one's life is lived.  Agree?  
It seems to me that worry is one of the biggest factors in how good or bad one's life is lived.  Worry is an anxious, troubled state of mind.  Who wants that?  No one, I hope. 
How much time is wasted worrying about getting a job, finding a mate, having enough money or will the American embassy murders and subsequent violence be ended with America stepping in with force?  Being anxious and worried about these things is not going to change their outcome.  The decision about your getting a particular job is out of your hands once the interview is over.  You have no control of the potential employer's decision making, so let it go.  If you want to be in a committed relationship do something about it.  Don't just worry that you will never meet anyone. Put yourself out there! Your inaction feeds the fever of worry and anxiety. If you don't have enough money, get another job or figure out ways you can make extra money from what you have on hand or what you are particularly good at.  Don't let your anxious mind take over, let your proactive mind take over.  Having anxiety about any possible military action by the U.S. will neither influence it nor remedy it.  Think positively that those who have control will remedy the situation in the best positive way.
Worry does not solve problems or situations.  Once you realize that worry is getting you nowhere - let it go!  My daughter once referenced a quote that I think covers it all.  "Worry is like a rocking chair.  It moves but it doesn't go anywhere."  I wish I could credit whoever said that but I have no idea who did.
So, get off the rocker and stop the worrying!  It isn't working for you and you are not living an easy, simple life.
