6 Books that Will Change the Way You Think

I read a lot. Like a fucking lot. Like a fucking huge amount of books. And words. And I swear a lot too, true. But hey. I even fucking quit my fucking job last year so that I can fucking read more. This morning after my fff…irst breakfast I read. Then I got another breakfast…

If you’ve missed my introduction on the subject, you can read it here: Life is Hard — An Introduction. Part I is there: Life is Hard — Part I. If you’re up to date, let’s keep going with a list of behaviors that bring back life to what it is supposed to be: simple. (But still…

Life is Hard — Part I

Life is Hard — Part I

If you haven’t read the introduction now would be a good time because 1) it introduces my views (hence the word introduction) 2) I wrote it and 3) in all objectivity it’s totally awesome. But in case you disagree with all that, here’s the gist: Life is hard, but it is simple. Because we want…

Introversion, Shyness, and the Need to Sell

Introversion, Shyness, and the Need to Sell (Yourself)

If you had read the about page of this site (don’t look for it, there is none), you would have known that I’ve spent the last 5 years debunking unhelpful beliefs. Why?

A Word on Acceptance

A Word on Acceptance

Acceptance is a key concept in self-esteem and relaxation. Acceptance doesn’t mean that you have to agree with everything or that you have to be ok with wrongdoings. Acceptance means living in reality. It means seeing things as they are. Not better, not worse. It means being honest, with yourself and with what the world…

Kill the SHOULDs

Kill the SHOULDs (and Chill Out)

Getting Better Takes Time

Getting Better Takes Time

You cannot learn to juggle in one hour. You cannot learn to play guitar in one day. And you cannot learn to ride a bicycle in one week. Ok maybe you can. Maybe it’s just me who suck. Or maybe you’re a genius. But the truth is, for normal people—and by normal people I mean…

Just Smell the Goddamn Roses

This title sounds like big bullshit, doesn’t it? Well you’re wrong. And the flowers aren’t even roses. Well for that you’re right. But smelling the goddamn roses, enjoying the moment and hanging in there is gonna change your life. Well actually your brain. So yeah, it will change your life. Now let me tell you…

Depression is No Flu

Depression is No Flu

I’m just back from France. I’ve spent a bit more than a month there for the summer. It was great, thanks for asking. A bit cold though. When my friends and family asked me about my job, I talked about this blog instead. So I unexpectedly ended up spending a good amount of time talking…
