Remember my post about shoulds this past week?
While finishing the filing yesterday, I cam upon something a long-forgotten therapist photocopied for me many years ago. It’s from the book Self-Esteem: A Proven Program of Cognitive Techniques for Assessing, Improving, and Maintaining Your Self-Esteem by Mathew McKay and Patrick Fanning. The subtitle of the section photocopied is The Tyranny of the Shoulds.
I suppose it’s past time I listened, hmmm? I wonder if I could find a used copy of this book somewhere—it actually looks quite interesting.
