If so, you are worrying about tomorrow.
Events that have already occurred may cause you regret,

You are worrying about paying your bills and finding a new job.
Those are worries about tomorrow.

It is much more painful to have lost
something you thought you had,
than never to have had it at all.

We are disappointed and we are angry;
but not quite sure at who to direct our anger.
Someone, perhaps "the system," perhaps God,
should have done better.
Most of all we are angry at ourselves -
even though we did our best -
and we are afraid.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

can become introspective,
invoking his own youth to understand
the youth before him,

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
