Has anything ever happened to you to make you think that something bad will happen?

I talk to people a lot about things they fear in my daily life and it's not so much the thing they're scared of but the thing that might happen.

And welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum! There's quite an active sub forum on anxiety here and I'm sure that there will be people with similar issues that you could chat with.

No I dont think there is anything as such that has made me like this, I had a good stable childhood in a safe surroundings.
I worry about the smallest things I always get annoyed at those who are closest to me, how do i stop this ?

Like I said, the people I encounter everyday are more worried about what may happen than actually does happen. It helps to get things into perspective. Instead of trying to tackle your worries about the nebulous "everything" pick the ones that interfere most with your life and tackle them with the help of a counsellor if necessary.

A counsellor would give you a person you can talk with just about how to get over the worrying. And picking out the things that worry you the most will help you focus on what to do and how you can do that. And if you just do one or two things you have a chance of seeing a real result.
