THE WOMEN * NIU *t*ft Write Now It's a Worry Timetable —But We Needn't Follow It Four psychologists at the Illinois- Institute of Technology hive com- pled a "worry timeUbe" based on what 103 psychologists hi the older age group confessed they worried about at various Ages. Here's the worry chart: Age IB— idealism >nd personal development. Age 20—personal appearance. Age 23—sexual morality. Age 26—male- ing a good Impression. Age 30— pay and cost of living. Age 31— personal bushiest success. Age 33— job security.. Age 38—health. Age 41—political convictions. Age 42— marital difficulties. Age 45—giving up ambitions. Over 45—health. Depressing, Isn't it? In fact it's so depressing it ought to make us determined not to let our own lives produce such a worry chart. But how can we avoid It? It might help If we'd clip that worry chart and keep it in a place for easy reference. Then when we start to worry about whatever is bothering us at our particular age, we could look at the chart and be reminded that last year we were worrying about something; else and the next year will bring a new worry. Unless, of course, we do something alxnit it by re'using to spend our lives worrying over one problem aftd another. Some Worry Hard to Avoid It's true we can't avoid worry in some periods of our lives. It's hard not to worry when there isn't enough money to pay the bills, or when we're seriously ill. But certainly every year shouldn't have its worries at all, If we could only stop to consider how lucky we are, Instead of fretting over some minor problem, for lack of a real one. It seems to me than the person who lias led a happy and successful life would have some blank spots on his worry chart. There would have been some periods that he recognized as good while he was living through them. Life doesn't have to be one worry afier another—unless we make tt so.
