Extracts from the book:
On Self-Hatred & Anxiety
“The cure is to remind the anxious person that we are not inherently wretched, that we have a right to exist, that past neglect wasn’t deserved, that we should feel tenderly towards ourselves.”
On Stoicism & Anxiety
“We must always try to picture the worst that could happen – and then remind ourselves that the worst is survivable. The goal is not to imagine that bad things don’t unfold; it is to see that we are far more capable of enduring them than we currently think.”
