How many things you fear have actually come to pass? How many times has anxiety driven you to behave in a way you later regret? How many times have you let jealousy or frustration, or greed lead you down a bad path?
Letting our reason rule the day might seem like more work, but it saves us quite a bit of trouble. As ole Ben Franklin would say “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
The brain was designed to do this work. It was meant to separate what is important from what is senseless, to keep things in perspective, to only become troubled by that which is worth becoming troubled about. You only need to put it to use. Reason that is.
