Hey @ChazB--Thank you so much for writing me back here! I loved your questions and thoughts on Twitter, and am so happy to hear a bit more background here.
I would love to hear more about what kind of practices helped you with your stutter. How old were you when you found what helped?
If I could paraphrase your argument about my article, it might be "I don't have a problem with titles like 'How to Beat Anxiety' because they can reach the right audience who needs to think in that personal growth way (a la Tim Ferris, perhaps?)" -- Did I get that right?
My response is: "I hear that. For some people, aggressive tackling may be the only thing that works. There is one person--Ben Foley (he's a writer on Medium and on the BV Slack Group) in particular who comes to mind. However, the problem is that you are catching the ocean. And the net result (pardon the pun) is that lots of people are under the impression that if they just tried harder, they could "win" against anxiety. And I can tell you if that were me, it would have led to more migraines, more stiff necks, more nausea. I had to learn tactics to help me ride the wave..."
I'm so glad you're sharing your perspective, @ChazB! Thanks for being here!
