Worry Causes Many Problems
A man having stomach pain went to his doctor. The doctor asked if he was
having trouble in his personal life or at his job.
The man explained that he was worried about some incidents that had happened at
work with his boss and his co-workers. Was there something the man could do to
change what had happened? ''No,'' responded the man. ''But it continues to
bother me." The doctor said, ''There is nothing you can do about the past. Close
the chapter and move on. You are upsetting yourself and your stomach over
something you cannot change.'' The doctor prescribed some medicine, and advised
him to forget the past to help expedite the cure of his stomachaches.
