Forfeiting the Present

Some people are afraid to enjoy the present because they anticipate that their happiness will soon come to an end. They create their own misery either by worrying about their past or by being anxious that they will not be happy in the future, both periods of which are beyond their control. In this way they forfeit the enjoyment of the present.

(Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski)
