"You largely constructed your depression. It wasn't given to you. Therefore, you can deconstruct it."
Hi REBT Mates! This one really pisses some people off, especially those who are quite invested in thinking about their depression as "genetic" and "inherited."

Hi REBT Mates! Christine Richardson posted the following as a comment in our long and perennial discussion about the differences between REBT and CBT. It is wonderful, thoughtful, and deserves a post of it’s own. I think you will find it interesting and moving. Unfortunately, the system seems to have eaten Christine’s member info and I have no way of contacting her. Christine, if you are reading this, I hope you will consider signing up as a guest author or contributing writer. Thanks for your useful contribution. Without further ado, I give you Christine…
I have a different view than most of those participating in this discussion. I studied CBT the hard way–as a client. I am also in the process of reading Beck’s “Cognitive Therapy and the Emotional Disorders”. I am sorry I do not have as much knowledge of REBT (as in none), but I plan to start. I’d like to share how CBT works for a client who is living with extreme bipolar and grew up in an alcoholic home with drug addiction and a bipolar parent.

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 only making unnecessary problems for yourself.” ~Epictetus
