Worry is like building a high tower consisting of blocks of negative emotions. Holding negative thoughts in mind makes people depressed. In reality, it's an imaginary fear and the prevailing situation might be totally opposite or better than thought.
Anxiety is not bad to certain extent. In fact, it’s a good tool to check over confidence or over-enthusiasm. But, as soon as it crosses line of control, it starts causing stress and eventually leads to bad health.
One can face worry due to ‘n’ number of reasons such as failure in exam, ill health, breakup in relationship, lack of timely completion of work, boss's anger etc. There is a saying that “If a problem can be solved then there is no need to worry however, if it cannot be solved, then what’s the use of worrying”. There is a great difference between worry and concern. To illustrate, worried person sees a problem, while concerned person solves the problem. Worry is an interest paid on trouble before its maturity.
