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.   2,631 total views, 2 views today Originally posted 2016-03-11 04:47:10.

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 1 Dec 18 in Awfulzing, Books & Media, bookshop |

Over at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup , http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/REBT-CBT-FORUM/info  ,  we have been having a fascinating-if-perennial discussion about whether anything is truly awful . . .

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

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 25 Nov 18 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.

Can Suicide ever be a rational act?

In light of recent events in the news and some of the lovely stuff that Jimmy and Steve posted here recently, I thought it might be appropriate to talk a little about suicide. First of all, if you are thinking about killing yourself or are having thoughts about harming yourself that are scaring you, pick […]

Armageddon

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 22 Sep 18 in Acceptance, Awfulzing, disqualifying the positive, Rational living |

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. 7,353 total views, no views today Originally posted 2015-07-30 07:37:31.
