Worry: v. to be excessively (concerned and anxious and uncertain) and wasting thinking time with a (real and/or imagined) (future and/or present) (danger(s) and/or event(s)) and/or subset(s)
Some worry is a natural human reaction to potential dangers and/or events and concern, anxiety, and uncertainty about the future is normal.
When worry is excessive then you are wasting much time thinking about horrible things which may happen and in most cases the worrying is really a waste of time since you often can’t change what the future will bring by just thinking about it. Also the horrible thoughts often don’t come close to future reality which is much more benign in most cases.
If the worry leads to or motivates preventative thoughts and actions to avoid future problems then the worrying has not been useless or wasted time.
