How to Stubbornly Refuse to Make Yourself Miserable

         Rational emotive theory (RET) is an action driven approach for accepting and changing self-destructive thoughts. My first exposure to Rational Emotive Theory was from my father, telling me I need to take control of angry outbursts and then handing me How to Stubbornly Refuse to Make Yourself Miserable by Dr. Albert Ellis. While there are many critics of RET and Dr. Albert Ellis within the realm of psychology, I cannot deny its affect personally.
