  This from an old friend from the REBT-CBT-FORUM@yahoogroups.com whom we have not heard from for a long time.  This person has been struggling with anxiety and although works diligently applying REBT-CBT techniques, does not appear to be getting much traction. Although I am not psychic, I think I may have an idea as to why.

How do we know whether our values are right or wrong?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 19 Oct 17 in morality, Rational living, Rational Thinking |

 

Good Morning All,

We have been having a fascinating discussion at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup  
about REBT and values.   A member points out that everyone has a collection of values; things and qualities which are important to them., and asks what REBT says about values and [more interesting] how do we know whether our values are right or wrong?


What a great question!
 
Unfortunately, I cannot deal with this one without coffee, and I have a busy morning, but I do hope this will stimulate a lot of comments and discussion because there a a lot of fascinating and important  “beef” here, much more than I can address now.
 
However, a short answer is:

Is “happiness” possible or a cruel illusion?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 17 Oct 17 in Happiness |

 Good Morning REBT Mates!

We have been discussing whether it is really possible to be “genuinely happy and what REBT has to say about happiness. A reader shares this quote from the Dalai Lama

"Achieving genuine happiness may require bringing about a transformation in  your outlook, your way of thinking, and this is not a simple matter."

– The 14th  Dalai Lama

His Holiness is being just a tad bland or casual, I think, in saying that genuine happiness is not a "simple matter."

It’s settled! Laughter is the best policy!

Grrrrrrr or Hahahaha ???
When something goes wrong, is it “”REBT Kosher” to intentionally laugh rather than lash out in anger?

Is keeping emotions “bottled up” dangerous?

In my callow and shallow youth, I used to subscribe to the "teapot model" of emotions.  You know, our emotional systems are like teapots with water boiling, generating steam and pressure.  If the steam does not have an outlet, or the outlet becomes overwhelmed by too much steam expanding too quickly . . . POW !!!  Explosion !!! 

But I don't think it works that way . . .

What do do when the meds are not working?

A loyal reader complains that the meds his pshrink is prescribing for anxiety are not helping.
