Fear, Worry, Anxiety!

There’s hardly anyone who might not have dealt with it.

These are some of the few things(much like those relatives) that won’t knock your door before coming at your place, they just flock into your life. It comes swiftly and breezes you away from your happiness, the good moments, your peace and you know everything good.

Also, it’s not like something that can be measured. I mean you can never say that “He’s/She’s is more depressed than me”. I mean, of course, you can say that but it doesn’t make sense at all.

Someone who drowns in 7 ft of water is just as dead as someone who drowns in 20 ft of water.

It ruins some part (in some cases ‘a HUGE part’ [I’m not comparing the Trauma. What am I comparing is the length of the trauma.]) of your life and it is necessary to overcome your fear, anxiety or worries. So, here are some few books that will surely help you to overcome these:
