Disguised “Should” statments

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 29 Nov 17 in Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, ought, should statements, Why? questions |

REBT Mates, it may have been yours truly who coined the term “disguised shoulds.” Dishonest “why” questions are one of the most obvious examples.

Armageddon

Posted by Rex Alexander on Mon 27 Nov 17 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. 6,752 total views, no views today Originally posted 2015-07-30 07:37:31.
