- to feel or express worry, annoyance, discontent, or the like
- to become eaten, worn, or corroded
- to torment; irritate, annoy, or vex
- an irritated state of mind; annoyance; vexation
Sometimes, I can't help but wonder if all of my worry and fretting is justified or if perhaps it's some other word that is gnawing at me. [Like terrified, overwhelmed, confused, panicked, or completely off the wall freaking out. Take your pick.]
Patience is a hard thing to learn.
So is life.
