“It is a dire necessity for an adult human being to be loved or approved of by virtually every significant other person in his community.”

“It is awful and catastrophic when things are not the way one would very much like them to be.”

“If something is or may be dangerous or fearsome, one should be terribly concerned about it and should keep dwelling on the possibility of its occurring.”

“One should be thoroughly competent, adequate, and achieving in all possible respects if one is to consider oneself worthwhile.”
