The Panic Bubble

It’s difficult to be around people who panic about EVERYTHING. I just don’t get it. I understand people have immediate reactions to things that happen, but I don’t understand the concept of LIVING in a panic bubble.

I’ll admit, when it comes to driving on icy roads, I DO panic. I’ve had horrible experiences with it and I will not drive on icy roads if I can help it. It’s terrifying to me. Isolated incidents are one thing, but panicking about EVERYTHING is no way to live.

Particular people drive me crazy with their panic. Every time something bad happens or something bad is potentially going to happen, they go on and on with their worry. They just can’t help themselves and they won’t shut up.

God has always taken care of me, so I don’t spend my life living in panic mode. I know people who DON’T believe in God and they don’t panic either. I know there are things I can’t control, but panicking about them only makes things worse. It makes it worse for not only yourself but for others around you who have to listen to you. If you want to live your life in a constant state of panic, have at it. However, there is no need to try to drag the rest of us into that life.
