Self acceptance is not a “thing.”

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 5 Jun 24 in Acceptance, Self esteem, USA |

 Here is a good  one from the 2008 archives about self-esteem and self acceptance: By refusing to “devalue yourself because of your ignorance” perhaps you do understand more than you think. Originally posted 2015-04-16 04:22:58.

Judge behavior, not self

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 17 May 24 in Acceptance, ePrime, Guilt & Shame, judgment, Rating, Self esteem, self vs. behavior, ULA, UOA, USA |

The long and the short of it is, however, that REBT-CBT–as do some  other modern psychological approaches and schools of psychology–encourages people to distinguish between self and behavior, and to recognize  judgments or global ratings as irrational and unhelpful, and to instead practice Unconditional Self Acceptance (USA), Unconditional Other Acceptance (UOA) and Unconditional Life Acceptance (ULA)  […]

Mortification of the Self

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 10 May 24 in Albert Ellis, REBT & Other therapies compared, Religion, Self esteem, Uncategorized, USA, z-15 |

 MORTIFICATION of the EGO    This may seem tangential to REBT. It definitely leans more to the philosophical than therapeutic. I think the conclusion brings the therapeutic aspect into clearer focus.      The “ego” or “self” or however you want to describe or define it, comes preinstalled on all humans so far as we know, […]

“Unconditional” Self Acceptance ???

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 14 Apr 24 in Acceptance, Basics, Rating, ULA, UOA, USA |

What does “Unconditional”  in Unconditional Self Acceptance Mean  ??? A reader says that his English teacher advised that he avoid “modifiers” as they weaken the strength of the word they are modifying.  So, rather than “Unconditional Self Acceptance (USA)” he just leaves it at “self acceptance.”  Nothing wrong with that, but it does raise some […]

Task perfection vs. self-perfection

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 31 Mar 24 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. […]
