🏵️“There are three musts that hold us back: I must do well, you must treat me well & the world must be easy.”
🧠According to Dr. Albert Ellis an idea is irrational if:
🔹It distorts reality.
🔹It is illogical.
🔹It prevents you from reaching your goals.
🔹It leads to unhealthy emotions.
🔹It leads to self-defeating behavior.
✳️Ellis thought that much of our emotional suffering comes from & can be managed by accepting & changing irrational, self-defeating, self-critical, and rigid beliefs.
✳️Self-compassion is a good way to explore irrational beliefs. More information in the next post➡️
