“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame your mother, ecology, or the president. You realize you control your own destiny.” Albert Ellis. ⁣

Albert Ellis (1913-2007) was an American Psychologist recognized for Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). He believed our mind is full of irrational ideas that guide our decisions and behaviors making us think that we are the most rational people in the world. He believed irrationality is camouflaged behind cultural beliefs and messages society sends us that we accept without question. ⁣

Question your thoughts. Make your problems your own so that you have the power to change things. ⁣
