Worry represents a cognitive process in which an individual becomes overly concerned with a future event and overestimate or exaggerate the possible outcome. A worrier may therefore engage in repetitive negative self-talk on possible outcomes. It appears that the worry process enables the individual hypothetically live his experience before he encounters the actual situation.
