Anxiety Independence by J.D. Kismet is a great self-help book that offers tremendous help to those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, and overthinking. It also helps those healing from emotional trauma in just five simple steps. In this book, the author helps you understand that you are not alone in the journey of healing from trauma and anxiety, and with the right tools, it is possible to heal completely and get your life back on track. It doesn't just teach ways to heal from your trauma and take control of your anxiety, but it also teaches ways to build back your confidence after you're done healing. The author asks only one thing from you, commitment.
I have read quite a number of self-help books, and I must say that this, beyond just being my favorite, is the best of its kind. In terms of grammatical errors, I found none in this book, which without a doubt, helped make my reading smooth. Also, J.D. Kismet used a soothing tone in this book. I liked the fact that he suggested a plethora of ideas and gave the reader the opportunity to choose one that best soothes his anxiety. I also liked the fact that case studies were given in this book because that would help readers understand better how to navigate the five steps the author recommended. For years now, I have been suffering from anxiety, and I don't seem to have a working solution to it. After reading this book, I am very confident that if I start practicing the recommended steps daily, I will be over my anxiety in no time.
One thing I came across in this book that I am guilty of is constantly ignoring the source of my anxiety and always imagining the worst-case scenario even when, in reality, I know things will most likely not turn out the way I imagined. Positive self-talk is one of the things this book taught, and I think it’s easy to inculcate that in my everyday life. I also learnt not to always focus on the bad side of all scenarios. There are always two sides to a coin, and most times, we tend to focus on just the bad side of most of our experiences without trying to know if there are positive sides to them. This book is a breath of fresh air. It makes you see things from a different perspective. It doesn’t just help your anxiety, but you can pick a few life lessons in between.
I don’t think there is a reason to dislike anything about this book. It ticked my boxes of what a good book should entail. It was a fast-paced book that simultaneously succeeded in delivering all its valid points.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. I didn't remove any star because there's absolutely no reason to do so. It's evident that J.D. Kismet engaged the services of a professional with the editing of this book. I found no spelling or grammatical errors in it, which points to the fact that it was exceptionally well edited.
I recommend this book to those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, and overthinking. Also, those healing from emotional trauma should pick this book up as its content will be of massive help to them.
