    worried

    1-I am worried to be alone.
    2-Being alone worries me.
    3-I am worried about being alone.

    In which case:
    a-I am alone and that worries me
    b-I am going to be alone and that worries me
    c-I am worried that I might be alone

    Re: worried

    Thanks Fivejedjon,

    My question was what were the meanings of 1, 2 and 3.
    I wanted to see which corresponds to "a", which to "b" and which to "c".

    Then ask the question in the first place, rather than leave us to guess what you want.

    1 does not sound natural to me, but could mean b or c, I suppose
    2 could mean all three
    3 could mean b or c
