I read many things looking for answers on how to cope better with living. I found a link to an article about creating a worry box. It is a simple method not to hide or ignore worries but a way to acknowledge them and give them a place to go, your worry box. This could be as simple a plastic container or more elaborate box created for this purpose. When I was in counseling, I used imaginary boxes to place some events that I wasn’t ready to process. Not forgotten, just set aside. Sometimes I need time to think about the problem. Sometimes I need more information. Sometimes I need to gather strength to face the contents of those worry boxes. I learned from experience that ignoring a problem is like ignoring a garden, end up with a lot of noxious weeds and dead flowers. A creative way to remind yourself that today may not be the day to face down a particular worry. Tomorrow may not be much better. But eventually, reviewing concerns you may discovered that they sorted themselves.
