I need you too much already, lah! :o{

I need you too much already, lah!   sad broken heart

Well, that is they way we might say it in Thailand or other Southeast Asian countries.  But in spite of the charming local syntax, I reckon that the irrational belief that drives this sentiment is very nearly universal.  Taken to the the extreme, and combined in a cocktail of other irrational beliefs, it leads to homicide, suicide and other unfortunate and destructive behavior.

Is REBT-CBT “Positive Thinking”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 23 Feb 18 in Postive thinkikng, REBT & Other therapies compared |

 Hi REBT Mates!Image result for positive thinking

 Erroneous comparisons of REBT-CBT to "positive thinking" and similar is a pereneal staw man argument . One of the problems in trying to get the word out  about REBT-CBT is that they are often dismissed  as merely “positive thinking. In my opinion, one of the goals of any REBT media is to distinguish REBT-CBT from . . .

A cat has PAWS on it’s claws, but a comma has pause on it’s clause!

A reader brings up some interesting questions about depression and other problems following withdrawal from dependence on benzodiazepines (related to Valium) even seven months after discontinuing use. He says that he has "PAWS (Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome)" Although this is a BIG subject, and although my response is necessarily fairly "global" and general, there are, I hope, some important and possibly useful consideration:

Ten Pounds of Shit in a five pound bag? :o{

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 21 Feb 18 in Procrastination |

 

Q: This intense person writes about a pattern of trying to “put 10 pounds of shit into a five pound bag,”   that is, making unrealistic plans, and then feeling frustrated,  and anxious aobut not accomplishing what he set out to do.  Sound familiar?

A: Hi Mr. X, all,

Long time no see!

In the 1970’s, a “priorities-driven” agenda, ala Lakein, was sufficient. These days, when one emergency replaces another emergency, which replaces another emergency,

It takes courage to be happy in a sad world!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 20 Feb 18 in Acceptance, Depression, Happiness, Irrationality in the arts & media, suicide, ULA, UOA, USA |

Hi REBT Mates!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wrote this yesterday for someone who struggles with depression. The holidays and tragic events in the news are not making it any easier. I am re-posting it here, pretty much unedited. While I reckon no one would ever accuse me of being Pollyanna, this is a message of hope, albeit expressed in a cynical and dark way. Please share your thoughts and feelings.

It takes courage to be happy in a sad world!

 

A Religious Science minister I used to watch on teevee in Hawaii from time to time was fond of saying  “It takes courage to be happy in a sad world!” It is a homily that rings true for me, especially these days.
