I understand that the phrase ·no worries· actually doesn·t mean that the person saying it has no worries or that that person is wishing the other person no worries. It is just an empty phrase that has become popular like ·Have a nice day· or ·How are you?·
I can·t help thinking what life would be like if one actually had no worries. For me, the biggest cure for worry is action. If I am concerned about an issue, doing something about it helps. Just worrying about it makes me feel helpless. The other cure for worry is to talk it out, preferably with your dog or cat. Most people don·t want to hear your worries, or worse your listener will wallow in them with you. Your pet will just listen, let you get out whatever it is you are worrying about and never speak of it again.
Avoid pat phrases in your speech. Telling someone ·No Worries· or ·No problem· when that is actually not true, or is an empty phrase, is a waste of breath. Practice being aware, and say things that are real and true and that you actually have to think about. Engage your brain and mouth and don·t just go on automatic pilot. As much as I can, I respond with answers to which I have actually given some thought and not just pat answers that mean nothing. For me, it creates more of a connection, even if just for a moment.
