Hey guys, I wanted to offer a potential tool to apply after finishing this spectacular course. The thing is, you will feel incredibly better after completing the course, but there will remain a bit of doubt and of resurfacing habits.
I read this short book called a "A New Guide to Rational Living," by Albert Ellis, PhD & Robert A. Harper, PhD, that holds humans as incompatible with rating systems. You don't have worth nor do you not have worth. You only "are." Thoughts, as in CBT, regulate your emotions (I haven't used CBT in a while, but I do know there are differences in the method, although minute; also, this is for all aspects of life, not focused solely on anxiety, although it covers the topic). The difference resides in accepting what was giving to you, as regards your situation, or working to change it if possible. In either scenario, you refrain from telling yourself irrational sentences, the cause of all disturbed thinking (depression, anxiety, need of approval, etc.) that you can change. The other cause is permanent physical pain that has no cure and for which they respectfully condone suicide. We've come here because of the former.
They hold that there exist disappointments, frustrations, and regrets in the world, but as rational and mature adults we can choose not to catastrophize them into depression, sorrow, and anger.
I had written some more but I lost connection and it wasn't saved. Anyway, this is a summary. There are no solutions to life, it will always be a struggle; however, you can decide to view it as it really is and manage to minimize any possible suffering, or you can think irrationally and live life in mental (unnecessary) agony.
You can borrow the book online at the internet archive or open library for free.
