A fairy tale

Some of the folk over at Down to Earth Forum have been discussing anxiety - when it occurs and what can be helpful in managing the emotion. I asked if they knew the story of the soldier, the inn and the axe. It was one told me by my mother when I was a child - the moral being that it is never worth worrying about something which might never happen. Some people asked to be told the story, so I have written my own version from what I can remember and have posted it here.

I enjoyed your story very much. It is true that useful worry aids no-one. However, it seems we are born to worry about things before they happen and some people are better at that than others!
