Trying to be Calm

I should be calm and collected,

and not be affected,

by something that isn’t even in my control.

I think, think and think,

over-contemplate every little thing,

only for me to be left in the ruins of negativity.

I try to be worth what I have,

but I just can’t seem to catch,

the idea of being unworthy.

    Maybe the last word was meant, worthy?

    Anxiety is inside your mind. It’s manifesting all these negative thoughts. These thoughts are lies.
    You were born perfect. You are still perfect.
    Being human doesn’t mean immortal & flawless… those are the lies.

      It was meant to be unworthy.

    We are human. We sometimes care less about ourselves so we can appease others.

      Yup, if only we start doing things for ourselves, we’d lead a much happier life.

    I love how you start this piece out with you should and not you do, representing it’s something you can change. Trying is the key words that beautifies this piece, the fact that you want to change things beyond your control just makes you a beyond the box thinker, and that’s okay but it stops you from relaxing and focusing on things and people you can change.😉. Nothing wrong with trying because there is everything wrong with giving up😊. There is a calmness in knowing that one has tried. And maybe you can’t find any sign in being unworthy because you aren’t unworthy lovely, but in fact you definitely are very worthy.🌹. Be calm and try looking again.😉
