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 . . .

Nothing is ever 100% Awful (Are you sure?)

Posted by Rex Alexander on Mon 28 Jan 19 in Awfulzing, Books & Media, bookshop |

Over at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup we have been having a fascinating–if-perennial–discussion about whether anything is truly awful . . . And, if it is true, as REBT asserts, that nothing is ever truly 100% awful, how can we convince clients of that? 3,050 total views, 3 views today Originally posted 2013-09-25 01:35:17.

Is anythnig ever truly 100% awful?

I enjoy the General Semantics (actually, more “ePrime”) exercise of debating whether anything is ever truly 100% awful. 2,587 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2013-02-08 19:20:50.

  My friend Jimmy from the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup is feeling gloomy about current events, and seeing some of the really nasty things going on in the news as heralding the breakdown of modern society.  He is hardly the first to make that observation. Here is what I said . . . 7,493 total views, 4 views today Originally posted […]

Is “should” ever necessary?

A faithful reader asks What’s the best response to “I should have ______  (done x y z more) and if I had, things would be different now”?     Thank you.” Ah, yes!  Our “Darling Shoulds!”  How we resist relinquishing them!   As if they were some jewel more precious than diamonds!   😉  6,092 total views, no views today […]

Not that they aren’t bad, but a rational person would recognize that the world is inherently unfair.” Albert Ellis, Ph.D. … Founder of REBT To which […]

Nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so

Nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so   Hi REBTmates! People, places, things and events do not upset us.  Rather, we upset ourselves by our distorted, irrational, unhelpful theories, interpretations, attitudes, evaluations and judgments about those  events.   2,802 total views, 4 views today Originally posted 2016-03-11 04:47:10.
