"Most of us have never been taught how to build great relationships, raise children, or to be content and find meaning; these issues tend to cause us a great deal of stress. Stress is a major cause of anxiety and behaviors that you want to change. However, you have the building blocks within you to put together great relationships, raise children, and have a meaningful flourishing life. Sometimes the building blocks you already have get jumbled and need to be adjusted. Errors in thinking lead us to feel bad and spiral downward or become anxious or depressed."
