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. 6,750 total views, no views today Originally posted 2015-07-30 07:37:31.

Nothing is ever 100% Awful (Are you sure?)

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 16 Nov 17 in Awfulzing |

Over at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup , http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/REBT-CBT-FORUM/info  ,  we have been having a fascinating-if-perennial discussion about whether anything is truly awful . . .

Nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so   Hi REBTmates! People, places, things and events do not upset us.  Rather, we upset ourselves by our distorted, irrational, unhelpful theories, interpretations, attitudes, evaluations and judgments about those  events.   1,454 total views, 8 views today Originally posted 2016-03-11 04:47:10.

Is keeping emotions “bottled up” dangerous?

In my callow and shallow youth, I used to subscribe to the "teapot model" of emotions.  You know, our emotional systems are like teapots with water boiling, generating steam and pressure.  If the steam does not have an outlet, or the outlet becomes overwhelmed by too much steam expanding too quickly . . . POW !!!  Explosion […]
