Age of Worry

Build your heart an army
To defend your innocence
While you do everything wrong
It's cool to worry. Worrying is so common it becomes a trend. Worrying shows people how much trouble you have in life. People with problems are cool. It's not cool to not worry. People who struggles to quit smoking are cool. People with money problem make themself a lot of friend. We worry about past, present and future. We worry what would've been if we only did this-that-whatever, we worry about what people think about us, we worry about where will we be in 5 years. Just like being busy, checking your agenda every time your friends asks you out shows how busy a person you are. It's not cool. Hire a damn assistant.
The thing about worrying is that people worries. A lot.  You theist people, God tells you not to worry. If you don't believe that, here's the verse:
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? -- Matthew 6
If God's already taking care of all those then why should you worry? Take your time to figure things out. Don't rush. It's okay to mess up. The most important thing is not giving up. I know keeping your dream alive in this mad world is nearly impossible. Dreams aren't cool. Money is. People will always drag you down. That's why you should stick to people who trust you and supports you no matter what.
Don't worry about the things that haven't even happen yet. Remember that 90% of your fear will never happen. We often run even before we know what's chasing us. So keep trying and don't ever forget where you come from.
My favorite philosopher of all time, John Mayer says this:

Know your fight is not with them
Yours is with your time here
Dream your dreams but don't pretend 
Alive in the age of worry
Smile in the age of worry
Go wild in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"
So don't worry. Maybe happiness isn't as cool but it's definitely nicer ;)
