The Dance of Fear: Rising Above Anxiety, Fear, and Shame to Be Your Best and Bravest Self Reviews

  • Hannah Fettig
    This book made a big impact on me. My favorite points:1. When you avoid what you fear, it worsens anxiety. If you can do things or put yourself in situations that you are afraid of, you can see yourself experience them and come out the other side all in one piece. For example, if it's fear of reject...
