s anxiety? I was thinking about this, and I've come to the conclusion that this isn't always true, I'm constantly thinking about the future and I don't get anxious, and I simply use the past to learn from mistakes (my own and that of others). Living in the present gives me anxiety because I'm not planning for the future, and yes the future rarely works out the way we want, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be dumb nuts and only worry about today. Because if we don't plan the future, the future is going to be worse, we can predict what's going to happen in the future. we can take steps to soften what bad is gong to be in the future. I've often been right wiith my predictions, which is one of the reasons I think one day I might be a prophet. Although there's no real proof, yet of that.
