      “Ordinary People” by Judith Guest. I first saw the movie when I was in middle school, before I really was fully in the depths of my anxiety and depression problems that would plague me later throughout my life. However, I read the book in college during a depressive episode I was having, and it truly changed my life. There is even more depth to it than the movie, and I’ve never personally read a book that so accurately and 100% describes my feelings of anxiety and depression. I swear my anxious inner monologue actually sometimes speaks in Conrad Jarrett’s voice—that’s how impactful this book is to me. I still return to it year after year for comfort and growth throughout my mental health journey.
