The phrase “can of worms” has been around since the late 1700s and means opening a complicated matter that is difficult to handle or solve. In this blog post, we will share 11 easy ways to get a can of worms. Some are easier than others but they all have one thing in common – you’re guaranteed to be left with more problems than when you started.
Make a New Year’s resolution to stop drinking alcohol and then break it. You’ll have all the usual guilt and shame as well as an additional can of worms – how will you explain this year long commitment? Where is your support system for recovery now? And, where does your addiction go next if not into remission or at least controlled with less frequency?
Think about trying on that dress in the store window but don’t buy anything. Now when you walk by, there are no windows to peek through so you’re left wondering what clothes were ever behind those curtains. The same goes for buying a car without test driving it first while some people might get lucky with their purchase decision, others may end up regretting theirs.
