You can't stop worrying. You can't turn off your emotions like a light switch. You can't control whether or not your mind goes in circles at night, keeping you awake with a million "what ifs".
Even if you don't like to think too much, there's nothing wrong with planning your schedule in advance. There's nothing wrong with getting nervous about what might go wrong tomorrow. There's nothing wrong with wondering what the future holds.
You can worry, but you can't hold back. You are not allowed to cower in your comfort zone, refusing to take risks, refusing to see what's out there in the world, refusing to take chances.
You don't want your worries to convince you to stay in the same place for the rest of your life. You don't want to end up settling for a mediocre existence that brings you no joy because you're terrified of what the world might have in store for you if you change your routine, because you're worried that things might get worse and you'd rather play it safe.
The truth is that the future is unpredictable. Even if you keep doing exactly the same thing, day after day, there's no guarantee it will last. Your world could still change in an instant. That's why it's important to pursue what you really want, even if there are some downsides, even if there are some risks, even if there's the possibility that some things could go wrong.
You can't live your life in fear. You are not going to end up feeling fulfilled if you always choose the safest routes, if you always allow your worries to get in the way of your decision-making process.
You are allowed to worry about how making a change will affect you. You are allowed to run through different scenarios in your head. You are allowed to be nervous about venturing out of your comfort zone. As long as you don't let those worries get in the way of you moving forward. As long as you don't convince yourself that it's safer to keep doing what you're doing, even if you're not entirely happy right now.
Everything in life requires some kind of risk. If you start dating, there is a risk of getting your heart broken. If you apply for your dream job, there is a risk that your application will be rejected. If you ask a friend out, there is a risk that you will be rejected.
You can't escape risks. You can't avoid them forever. Even when you decide not to make a change, you still run the risk. You risk the possibility that one day you will wake up and be filled with regrets, that you will want to make different choices, that you will end up miserable.
If you are forced to take a risk, no matter what you do, you may as well choose the risk that excites you the most. The risk that seems worth it in the end.
