Judge behavior, not self

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 31 Jan 19 in Acceptance, ePrime, Guilt & Shame, judgment, Rating, Self esteem, self vs. behavior, ULA, UOA, USA |

 I wrote this yesterday for someone who struggles with depression.  While I reckon no one would ever accuse me of being Pollyanna, this is a message of hope, albeit expressed in an oblique way.

Stoic Philosophy and REBT

The gods have released you from accountability for your parents, your siblings, your body, your possessions – for death and for life itself. They made you responsible only for what is in your power – the proper use of impressions. So why take on the burden of matters which you cannot answer for? You are […]

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 21 Sep 18 in Acceptance, Perfectionism, Rating, Task Perfection vs. Self Perfection, ULA, UOA, USA |

  Many confuse the REBT idea of Unconditional Self-acceptance (USA) with being cavalier unconcerned about how well they perform, and fear that embracing might cause them to lose their edge in a competitive, results-oriented society, possibly losing their work ethic and slipping into a passive, dysfunctional lifestyle. While this concern is understandable, it is unfounded. […]
