worry as a guide

When I have lots of things on my todo list, such that I can't do them all, I think about how to prioritize them. But it occurs to me that what I feel as "worry" may actually be my brain's native prioritization mechanism.

I worry that I worry about unimportant things, but I feel like when I convince myself that something really is unimportant, I also stop worrying about it.

I just hate the feeling of worry. Yet, I hate the feeling of being burned too, and maybe worry is sortof like feeling hot, as a warning that I might get burned.

I suppose if I'm feeling worried a lot, I'm playing too close to the fire.
