Many worriers believe worry is part of their nature and it is impossible to rid themselves of it. But worry is just a habit. Some people started this habit at a young age, so it may seem to be their nature.
But any habit can be changed. Even a chronic worrier can learn to lead a worry-free life. If you look at worry as a bad habit you picked up, and you try to think more sensibly, you have a good chance of overcoming your habit.
