It’s official! “Awfulize” is now a word!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 19 Mar 19 in Anger, Awfulizing, Awfulzing, Basics, Demanding, Demanding, Emotions, Low Frustration Tolerance, must |
Dr. Ellis coined the term “awfulize” by transforming the adjective “awful” into a verb. The language of REBT can sometimes sound a little contorted, especially when employing “ePrime,” in it’s preference for  using more verbs and adverbs than nouns and adjectives.  Now, it is official! “Awfulizing” has made it to the big time and is now in the dictionary!

What is important?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 19 Mar 19 in Homework, Values |

  I love this Tracey Ullman bit about regretting not posting more pictures of her lunch on facebook.  It’s funny and it’s timely but it raises important questions about what is important in life. 118 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2018-12-08 05:17:36.

The Meaning of Life

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 17 Mar 19 in Depression, General Semantics, Happiness, musterbation, musty thinking, Religion |

Perhaps there are such people as “pure philosophers” who placidly think about the “meaning of life” as a kind of “recreation,” and are not motivated to do so by existential angst.   3,955 total views, 2 views today Originally posted 2015-03-11 05:39:27.

Whine! Whine! Whine!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 16 Mar 19 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, must, musterbation, musty thinking, Rational Songs & Limericks, Videos |

Whine! Whine!” song about […]

Disguised shoulds?

Greta Van Susteren,  former Fox News Analyst Are Greta’s “disguised shoulds” showing? We have been talking about the model of REBT where demanding (shoulds, oughts, musts, etc.) are at the root of disturbance.  I thought it might be a good occasion to reprise my concept of “disguised shoulds.” 3,319 total views, 2 views today Originally posted 2014-10-01 […]
