Throw away your worries.

A psychology lecturer held  half glass of water and questioned,"What is the weight of this glass?"Different replies came from the students, ranging from 2mls to 10mls.The lecturer said, "Absolute weight does'nt matter. It depends how long we hold it.  Hold this glass for two minutes there is no problem,in one hour my hand will pain, if I hold it the whole day, my hand will  paralyse. Similarly if we  worry about our problems for a minute they will pass off but the longer we  worry , they will paralyse our mind, incapable of doing anything." DON'T  WORRY!

  6. I have realized as I have grown older that it is pointless to waste time worrying. It is better to live life as it comes. You can't truly live if you are burdened down with your worries.

  12. Carrying unwanted weight on our shoulders would only give us more pain in the form of frozen shoulders, and no medicine can cure it, for it is up to us to release our burden and feel free from the pain.
    Nice thought put in a nice and simple way.
