In about the year 60 BC, Roman philosopher Seneca wrote this:
"There are more things that frighten us, than injure us, and we suffer more in imagination than in reality."
Not only anxious thoughts, but also resentment, grievances, pointless complaining, guilt and regret, criticism of self and others, perpetual discontent...... are ways in which we unconsciously create suffering for ourselves.
