The only reason they think this way is because they are only looking at the negative things in life. So you need to look at the positive things in life.

If you have a family that is good, if you have a job that is good, if you have good health, if you have friends that are good and if you have a good sense of humor that is good. Get the idea once you start doing this you will stop worrying.
