if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it

Paranoia is a scary thing.  It’s the one thing that can completely disintegrate the good in our lives.  Recently, I have allowed my paranoia to get the best of me (something I allow to happen far too often).

Recently, when a friendship I had ended, I was paranoid that that strain would affect another friendship. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t focus on the good qualities of my friendship like how strong, supportive and fun it has been, I was more so worried all the good things would begin to fall apart.

Instead of just letting things be, I made a self-fulfilling prophecy and the only strain that was affecting my friendship was my own worry.  Not only that but I began to project what happened in one relationship would happen in another.

When I could’ve simply focused on each relationship as completely separate entities, I allowed one unfortunate set of circumstances to spoil something that was perfect already.

I should’ve simply focused on the old saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” because the more you try to “fix” something that is perfectly fine, the more likely you are to break it all the more.
