Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy
~David Burns, M.D.
One of the most unusual, attention-grabbing, and in my opinion, important chapter titles ever in a self-help book of this kind. But what on earth could be the reason for such a seemingly negative, almost anti-American sentiment?

Albert Ellis, Ph.D. … Founder of REBT
To which JvB adds: “Awfulizing makes horrors out of inconveniences. It turns discomfort and pain into torture. Misfortune transforms into abject misery. Even those things that are really truly awful become AWFUL!!!. And that which is AWFUL!!! becomes AWFUL!!! times 10. There is nothing so bad that awfulizing can’t make infinitely worse.”

|On another blog, a friend was gently ribbing me about my interest in “kooky” stuff like TaiChi and biofeedback that has little to do with REBT-CBT.|

OK, we know that REBT emphasizes various types of demands, including but not limited to, shoulds, oughts and musts, as well as a number of what I refer to as disguised shoulds typically insincere “Why?” questions.

Hi REBT Mates! Might as well hear it directly from the horse’s mouth, as it were. We are most fortunately to live in this modern age where the treasure of Dr. Ellis’s ideas is preserved for posterity. Â We intend to post more of these videos in due course, perhaps create a “videos” section or library here.
This is part of audio talk of Dr.Albert Ellis on Unconditionally Accepting Yourself and Others

Do you know that there are 39 grams (9.3 teaspoons) of sugar in a 12 ounce can of Coke? And there is a similar amount in other fizzy drinks as well
When you drink the end product, it may not seem overly-sweet like there are 9 or more teaspoons of sugar in your fizzy drink, but just imagine sitting and eating 9 teaspoons of regular sugar out of the bowl! Now imagine doing that 6 or more times a day as many people do! Yuck!

|We have been having a fascinating, wide-ranging discussion which I think boils down to a few basic-but-important questions:
1. Is it necessary to avoid shoulds, oughts, musts and why’s? in everyday speech?
2 What is the difference between “task-perfection” and “self-perfection.”
