Matthew 6:27 – Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
It takes a lot of emotional energy to be around other people. They can drain you. You become more anxious because you don’t want to let other people down. Your pain level increases again, and you wonder what other people truly think about you. God can help you break the pain cycle and help you find peace in your day. Seek the Lord out. Knock on the door and he will open it for you and set you free from focusing on your pain. And don’t worry about other people. If you really knew just how much time people spend focusing on you, you’d stop worrying. Each person has their own worries that they’re focusing on, not you.
