    worried/upset

    I wonder if there is any difference between "1" and "2".
    1. I'm worried about being fired.
    2. I'm upset about being fired.

    Both mean suffering from disturbing thoughts.
    To me upset often connotes anger, fury, while worried a sense of reserved sadness.

    Re: worried/upset

    but isn't "I'm worried" more that she is worried about something that might happen whereas the other sentence implies one has already been fired?
