英文諺語 Don’t meet trouble halfway
Don’t meet trouble halfway 勿杞人憂天
Don’t worry about something before it has happened. Your fears may be groundless, for it may never happen. Rather than avoiding problems, your actions mean that you actually increase the chances of meeting them.
– “ Your mother hasn’t phoned, do you think she’s got a problem. Should I phone the police?”
“You always try to meet trouble halfway! If there was something wrong, her neighbor would have phoned us!”
