Dare to Be Average!

Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy
Chapter 14

~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?

I can’t stand it!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 7 Dec 18 in Awfulzing |
Jonathan von Breton shared another Albert Ellis quote in his “The Daily Al” feature:
 
We say that nothing is awful, nothing. Rape, i

ncest, terrorism, Hitler-it isn’t awful. 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 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.”

Will there always be an REBT?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 7 Dec 18 in Albert Ellis, REBT & Other therapies compared |
Related imageOn 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.

Three musts which hold us back

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 7 Dec 18 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, should statements |

 

HOMEWORK

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.

Dr. Ellis speaks on accepting self and others.

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 6 Dec 18 in Acceptance, Albert Ellis, Basics |

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.  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

Enjoy!

39 teaspoons of sugar in a can of Coke! Yuck!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 6 Dec 18 in Uncategorized |

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!

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

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 5 Dec 18 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, must, musterbation, musty thinking, Needs vs. Preferences, Wants vs. needs |
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.”
3. Can we be motivated without . . .
