People who experience persistent anxiety practically always operate with a negative self-view, along with a strong sense of desperation and vulnerability. This vulnerable state of mind frequently opens the floodgates to more of the physical sensations we associate with anxiety, and persistent forms of anxiety can add to one's sense of personal doubt. This reciprocating process of self-doubt links to anxiety and creates a platform for a continuation of self-doubts. This book offers a powerful program for breaking the cycle of anxiety. Using the time-tested principles of rational-emotive behavior therapy (REBT), the book shows readers how to recognize and dispute the irrational thoughts that can cause anxiety. It proceeds with action-oriented steps that help readers return from the dizzy, heady realm of anxiety to a grounded and purposeful existence.
