Albert Ellis: The Pig and the Cow – or how often have you felt a negative emotion because of the faulty evaluation of the situation?

Summary:
– amusing story of calling out “Pig!” to a male driver, & he then in turn calling her a “Cow!”
– misunderstanding a text message & its intonation
Lesson:
– Slowdown
– Pay attention to your thoughts
– Notice when you are colouring a situation by evaluating it
– Instead just try describing what actually happened
