How to use worrying in a sentence?

  1. John Stanley:

    The government should take full cognizance of the fact that a particular regime is an authoritarian regime, it is suppressive of human rights ... and is likely to use force if necessary to protect its authority, if you look at human rights violations and you look at the use of force, sadly without any question over the last 12 months things have deteriorated in a pretty worrying way.

  2. Mickey Mehta:

    The amount of time we spend thinking, criticizing, judging, worrying, calculating, fighting, hating, arguing, is not funny. Considering one third of our lives we spend sleeping and the rest is consumed by non-creative processes mentioned above.What a waste of life. Let's also stop becoming paranoid humanoids and instead simply be human beings living in joy. Mickeymize your life.

  3. Chris Murphy:

    A general at DoD was especially worrying under Trump, trump had zero foreign policy experience, a penchant to glorify violence, a total neophyte Secretary of State, and an unstable, war mongering former general as NSA.

  4. Michael Bennett:

    The statistics may sound worrying when you first hear them but they've got to be interpreted as a positive.

  5. Severin Meiland:

    Before you were born there was billions of billions of years you didn't exist, and after you are dead there will be billions of billions of years that you wont exist. You don't remember the moment you where born, and you won't rememeber the moment you die. Life is a break between two eternies, a pause you might call it, and when you have a break or a pause, you dont want to work, live in misery, or struggle, but rather to rest, and enjoy yourself and others, and to live life easy, without worrying about what happens after, and certainly not what happened before. What matters is here and now, everything else is not worth worrying about.
