Acceptance is not love!

 


Your Opinion Matters


"Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human."

~Albert Ellis


 This is one of the premises of REBT-CBT that often confuses and pisses off people.  It is closely related to the irrational belief / IB that one absolutely must have love and love oneself (so called "self esteem")  in order to be happy. 

What do you think it means?
