I was listening to an audio book today, How to be Totally Miserable, a Self-Hinder Book, by John Bytheway. John Bytheway is an LDS author and speaker.
This is a book that is geared toward teens that I checked out for my daughter and decided to listen to. It is a humorous book designed to teach kids how to be happy by pointing out how to be totally miserable. Such as: focus on everything you don't have instead of what you do have, then you will be totally miserable; think only of yourself and be totally miserable; question the motives of people's kindness and be miserable. You get the picture.
One thing he talked about really struck me. He talked about fear meaning:
How many times do we feel fear or anxiety because we start creating outcomes or expectations that may never come to fruition. Linking this to a lack of faith in our lives.
Something to think about next time we feel fearful.
