    How to translate "I'm worried about him"?

    I recently posted on another forum, saying that the correct translation is:

    я беспокоюсь за него.

    Then someone else posted, saying this is absolutely wrong and you have to say

    я вольнуюсь за него.

    But for me, both of these phrases seem totally equivalent, and the first sounds more normal. And there is also я переживаю за него. What is the difference between these sentences?

    All of these are equivalent.

    For me all of these sentences does sound absolutely normal in this translation. And I see no significant differences in them.

    Тоже правильно сказать: "я беспокоюсь о нём"?
