Untangling the brain at its core!
I am a mirror-image twin (36 yrs old) and without realizing it, at a young age I started mimicking “life” when I ever encountered something that scared me to death...like hurting someone’s feelings. I have a long way to go, but reading this book has slowly been giving me the ability to slow my thoughts long enough to process emotions and naturally react instead of automatically retreating. It also started me on the road to figuring my brain out solo and dealing with my level of mental issues without feeling like life’s impossible. Having something as simple to lean on as an informative and enjoyable book made my anxiety lessen immensely. I’m very grateful to have it!
Vital information about the brain & behavior...and ways to make it healthy.
