The work of worrying ñ when it succeeds ñ is to rehearse what those dangers are, and reflect on ways to deal with them. But worry doesnít work all that well. New solutions and fresh ways of seeing a problem do not typically come from worrying, especially chronic worry. Instead of coming up with solutions to these potential problems, worriers typically ruminate on the danger itself, immersing themselves in a low-key way in the dread associated with it while staying in the same rut of thought. Chronic worriers worry about a wide range of things, most of which have almost no chance of happening; they read dangers into lifeís journey that others never notice.
