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 […]

“Unconditional” Self Acceptance ???

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 4 Oct 17 in Acceptance, Rating, ULA, UOA, USA |

What does "unconditional"  in Unconditional Self Acceptance Mean  ??? A reader says that his English teacher advised that he avoid "modifiers" as they weaken the strength of the word they are modifying.  So, rather than "Unconditional Self Acceptance (USA)" he just leaves it at "self acceptance."  Nothing wrong with that, but it does raise some […]

To achieve anything in life, you have to make it a “must” ???

We have been having a fascinating, wide-ranging discussion which I think boils down to a few basic-but-important questions: 1.

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

 Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   1,886 total views, 4 views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.
