If you buy one self-help book, this should be it

If you are anxious and/or depressed, read and re-read (and re-read again) this book. Works best in conjunction with The Feeling Good Handbook by David Burns. Froggatt systematically lays out how most of what is ailing you (guilt, depression, anger, lack of assertiveness, perfectionism, etc.) are all branches of the same tree. They all have their roots in what he calls self-image anxiety (often mistakenly referred to as low self-esteem).

He also points out how it's not "cognitive distortions" that make you feel bad, but instead your "evaluations" of those distortions. For example, you may be worried that someone will get mad at you. That could be "distorted," in that they're unlikely to actually get mad at you. But there's always a chance that they will, in fact, get mad. Your fears may come true. So the way to really feel better is to realize that, even if they get mad, it will not be a catastrophe (check out his very helpful catastrophe scale).

A life-changing book, but it does require several readings.
