toryellen replied to quoted-books: I don’t have anything too particular in mind. I just have been dealing with a lot of anxiety lately, and I’d like stories about characters who have similar struggles but come out the other side. If that is too random no worries.
Thanks for clarifying for me! Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you! The characters below deal with anxiety in different ways because of different issues in their own lives. I hope it helps you with your own! Good luck! For the record, nothing is ever too random! I will give it my best shot!

“The most dangerous kind of man is not the one who spent his youth shoving others around. That kind of man gets lazy, and is often too content with his life to be truly dangerous. The man who spent his youth being shoved around, however … When that man gets a little power and authority, he often uses it to become a tyrant on par with the worst warlords in history.”
“'Love is madness,' I say. 'Doesn’t everyone agree that you’d do anything, endure anything, to be with the ones you love? So either you’re willing to let them use you with any sort of cruelty, so long as they keep you—which makes you a fool—or you’re willing to commit any cruelty, so long as you get to keep them—which makes you a monster. Either way, it’s madness.'”
