Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

Don't take it personally.

If so, you are worrying about tomorrow.
Events that have already occurred may cause you regret,

You are worrying about paying your bills and finding a new job.
Those are worries about tomorrow.

Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.
