Sex

Issues in the bedroom, STIs, contraception, seduction, wild fantasies and last but not least your sex drive; these subjects aren’t always straightforward to address with your friends. Having a fulfilled sex life requires a certain openness and an appreciation of your body. Knowing yourself and loving yourself are two very important for a fun and satisfying sex life. There a no taboos here, no subject is too obscure.

Toxic Positivity

Optimism is good, and, typically phrases like "It's going to be all right", "Be strong", "everything will eventually be all right" can make us feel better when used in moderation. But, repeating them over and over again, whilst constantly imposing a falsely positive attitude, can quickly become toxic. Contrary to what we believe, not allowing yourself to feel down or bad about things actually does more harm in the long run. It's time we stopped forcing a false sense of optimism on ourselves.

Why Does Complaining Make Us Feel So Much Better?

Although I wouldn't exactly say I'm a negative person, I often feel like I complain a hell of a lot. I moan because it’s too cold or too hot, because people don’t walk fast enough, because the driver in front doesn’t indicate, because I’m tired… You've probably got it by now, but the list goes on and on. However, that being said, I've also realized that those around me do the same too. This attitude may seem like a heavy one to burden, but it does in fact make me feel freer and happier. It's almost like getting the negativity off my chest, helps put a smile on my face.

Dare To Say The Most Difficult Things For Improved Communication

We often think that we talk enough, sometimes even too much, but communicating isn’t just about talking. It’s saying things, passing on a message that has to be well received. And that is what’s important, the way a message is interpreted. That’s why saying things clearly, even if they’re difficult to say, is crucial for healthy communication.

Why Do Couples No Longer Fight To Save Their Relationships?

Seeing the number of couples who divorce or separate around us, a legitimate question arises and that is; do we fight less than previous generations to save our relationships? At the first sign of trouble, many of us seem willing to give up and move on to fresher pastures in the love department, that's right, we tend to believe that the grass is greener elsewhere. Is it because we were never truly head over heels for our partner? And, is it naïve to think that love can be everlasting?

I’ve Decided, I’m Going To Stop Complaining At Work

Let’s face it, there are many reasons to complain at work: the boredom, the lack of motivation, the stress of not finishing on time, the unpleasant remarks from your boss, the never-ending meetings and now added to all that, having to wear a mask all day. To be perfectly honest, yes, there are reasons to complain. Does it do any good? No, not really. Moaning doesn’t help at all and worse, it puts us in a bad mood for the day. It's time to stop complaining at work and instead rise to the challenge of being positive!

Professional Recognition

When I was still a student doing an internship, I will always remember something my manager told me: “At work, you don’t need your boss’s recognition. As long as they pay you, it means you’re doing your job well, and you don’t need anything else.” At the time, this sentence made complete sense to me. Several years later, I’ve experienced a boss who paid me but who also spent all day humiliating me, putting me down and yelling at me… I understood that a salary wasn’t enough. Professional recognition is an essential part of life and well-being at work.

I’m Very Modest; But Is My Bashfulness Just A Barrier?

The truth is I’ve never ever been the type of person who throws everything out there. I hate talking about my feelings, relationships and personal life and will always try to deflect these questions! For me, modesty is a barrier that I’ve always chosen to put up in order to keep people at arm’s length. The bottom line is, I want to keep things private and don’t believe that everyone needs to know absolutely everything about me. I like to closely control what I put out into the world, but where does my modesty come from? Fear of judgement? Shyness? Mistrust? Let’s explore all of these possibilities and get to the bottom of this conundrum.

Performance Obsession

I never leave my computer, I stay up late to double-check my presentations, I compare myself to my work colleagues… Help! I think the need to be the best at work is making me crazy! This obsession with performance and wanting to be number 1 affects a lot of people. Why do we have this desire to perform the best we can? What makes us behave like this? What if we simply stopped wanting to be perfect, wouldn’t that be nice? Let’s take a closer look at this behavior.

Why Are Women Always Expected To Smile?

I have a problem, which in reality isn’t one. I don’t smile naturally. It’s normal, I’m a human being with emotions and thoughts which don’t necessarily make me want to smile. However, men have already asked me to smile. If there’s something that makes me want to burn everything, it’s when I receive such a request. I can’t stand this injunction to women any longer. We have to stop being told to smile! And why do women always have to smile? We’ll explain all about this sexist mechanism.
