Our culture and its obsession with partnered relationships

Many people genuinely enjoy being single and the concept of remaining single for the rest of their lives makes many people uncomfortable.

Our culture is submerged with the notion of long-term romantic relationships and marriage is an antiquated way of defining a long-term committed relationship. However, happiness can also be found even when we are by ourselves.

Instead of prioritizing one person by default, we can decide for ourselves who or what really matters to us, and live accordingly.

Love & Family

3 IDEAS

Things that draw people together as friends

We tend to build friendships with people who share common interests and values, have gone through the same difficulties, and support each other equally.

We are selective about friends because not everyone is able to exchange thoughts and feelings with us.

The power to hold on

One of the most important techniques to calm down is having the power to hold on, even in demanding and hard situations, to a distinction between what someone does and what they meant to do.

How to Remain Calm With People

6 IDEAS

People who have friends live longer

A study on longevity found that it was not weight, eating habits, exercise, air pollution, etc. that affected how long someone lives.

Only two things made a huge difference:

  • frequency of social support
  • how integrated peope were in their community.
The emotionally unavailable person

People often find themselves involved with an emotionally unavailable person at some point. The person with deficits in emotional intelligence turn things around on others, avoid taking personal responsibility, and defends their position at all cost.

A person who cannot sustain closeness in a relationship often mistake control for closeness, inflicts guilt and makes unfair accusations to manage the other person.
