I understand what this post is saying but it kind of annoys me.

Because it's actually motivated by not knowing whether or not you can solve your problems.

Example: you only have one night to finish a project and you're not sure whether or not you'll be able to finish in time and whether or not you'll have to face the consequences of that. It's not a matter of knowing you wont have it done and theirs nothing you can do about it, its also not a matter of knowing you will be able to have it done and it won't be a problem.

To sum it up in a lot of cases stress is from fear of the unknown.

My family philosophy (and my personal one) is similar: If you can do something about it, don't worry, DO it. If you CAN'T do something about it, it's out of your control, so don't worry!

Because otherwise we wouldn't have many life saving surgical techniques.

I don't know, maybe, worrying whether you can or cannot solve your problem. Or maybe, what the consequences will be should you fail to solve your problem. Only a sith deals in absolutes.

I think worrying is anxiety caused by not knowing if you can solve your problems or not, whether or not you actually have a solution.

Not necesarily
For example:
Myself when i was 13, my teachers (in a thrid-rate school) almost knew LESS than me, and the things i didnt know i would learn with time. So why worry?
Shantideva isn't expressing laziness or low-achieving, but the lack of preocupation for either, mainly people who are lucky, per say, don't preocupy themselves with the riduculousness of preocuping oneself with an unsolvable problem, for example if an equation if you can't calculate x, after proving that it can't be solved (x is non-existent), why redo the problem.

and yea you are right its their problem.) i just comment it for no concrete reason cause i felt like it.)

i understand your point and its valid.....but there is no backstory or reason explained in this picture so it could be understood from many angles....and to me the whole idea of it reminded me of people who just dont give a **** about certain thinks and from my experience if you dont worry about anything you dont care....you took it too deep imo and dont call me stupid you dont know me.) of course there are some things its useless to worry about.) also sorry for my english (my second language), dont grammarnaci me.)

Someone logical. THUMB FOR YOU!

In addition, why do you wish to preocupy yourself with other people's lives? If they're underachieving it's THEIR problem, not yours. Besides, what interest do you have in critizing a phrase, perhaps out of context, from the filosophy of an old or dead man, if one wishes to follow this ideology, then great, if the do not, then great, but to critize an ideology without knowing the reason behind it, is, in my opinion, ridiculous and stupid.

Well, it does serve a purpose in making you more aware of things than before, but this is merely to facilitate moving on from this state.

Sometimes for some people it takes a lot of worry to get them to start working on what they should work on (or let go of what they should let go of), but those people are just making it harder on themselves. That said, worry about your heroine addiction (even lasting, stressful worry) can be a good thing if in the end it helps you get to work and solve the problem.

Therefore the only purpose of worry is when the existential purpose of worrying transcends this question, i.e.: "I'm not sure if it's something I can fix or not."

We know. It's just good outlook for those that worry TOO much.

Like enough to think such a length comment to clarify that was actually justified?

I don't have a problem...
