Jonathan von Breton shared another Albert Ellis quote in his “The Daily Al” feature:
We say that nothing is awful, nothing. Rape, i

Albert Ellis, Ph.D. … Founder of REBT

To which JvB adds: “Awfulizing makes horrors out of inconveniences. It turns discomfort and pain into torture. Misfortune transforms into abject misery. Even those things that are really truly awful become AWFUL!!!. And that which is AWFUL!!! becomes AWFUL!!! times 10. There is nothing so bad that awfulizing can’t make infinitely worse.”
