True freedom is freedom of the mind.
Only a person whose mind is free from worrying can be considered truly free.
Many wars have been fought to gain liberation. People have willingly undergone many hardships to gain freedom. It makes sense, therefore, to make the effort to free your mind from needless worry.
(Chochmah Umussar, vol.2, p.99; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.154)
