Job Search Pain and Paper Cuts

This morning I was feeling my index finger where I had a paper cut. Ah… the infamous paper cut. We’ve all had them. I think my worst might have been a cardboard cut. Yuck. Anyway, I was rubbing my index finger… you know when you get a paper cut that has healed over, but there’s still a flap of skin there? Only, this morning, it wasn’t there. In fact, I haven’t had a paper cut for… maybe years. I was feeling for something that had hurt quite a bit (okay, I’m a wimp)… but it has since completely h...

What Is a Spiritual Perspective?

A spiritual perspective on some area of life asks questions like these: What is my current relationship with this part of life?How would I like my relationship with this part of life to be? If you remove the physicality from life, what remains is energy. But energy alone is meaningless. What brings meaning to different energy patterns is how you relate to those patterns. So these questions can pop you up to a spiritual perspective by helping you focus on the relationship you’re experien...

How to Choose a Biography to Read

Biographies are a particularly rich genre of books. By reading them you can learn not only about an individual’s life, but through that personal prism, find an accessible window to the historical period in which they lived. Paradoxically, the more particular something is, the more generally it can be applied, and even if some figure lived a very different and much more epic life than yours, following the contours of their story can grant you plenty of insight into your own. But what do you do w...

Eine Ode an die Handtaschen, die wir dieses Jahr vernachlässigt haben

Mal ehrlich: Wie oft hast du dich im vergangenen Jahr „schick“ angezogen – oder auch nur einigermaßen ausgehtauglich? Wenn du ganz ehrlich bist, dürfte dein durchschnittlicher 2020er-Look vermutlich aus Jogginghose und Schlabbershirt bestanden haben. Und hey, das macht dir wirklich niemand zum Vorwurf – im Gegenteil, wir begrüßen diesen Selbstisolations-Style. Während deine High Heels aber allmählich in die hinterste Ecke deines Schuhschranks rückten und du dich vielleicht inzwischen gar nicht m...

Psychotherapie für Muslim:innen: Wenn der Glaube zum Hindernis wird

Darüber zu sprechen, dass man eine Psychotherapie macht, fällt manchen Leuten schwer. Die Therapie ist für viele immer noch ein stigmatisiertes Tabuthema – oder zumindest etwas, worüber ungern gesprochen wird. Muslim:innen geht es damit nicht anders. Dabei scheint es ihnen aber leichter zu fallen, mit muslimischen statt westlichen Therapeut:innen zu sprechen. „Hast du es schon mal mit Psychotherapie probiert?“ Wer mit psychischen Gesundheitsproblemen zu kämpfen hat, wird diese Worte ke...

"In her teens and twenties, she tried embracing conventional notions of womanhood just to avoid what she calls 'social harassment' before abandoning it in disgust."

"'I pretended to act the way I thought a cute woman should act, with an excess of femininity, but it was a horrible experience. I felt like I’d lost my will,' she says. In a relationship with a convenience store manager 15 years her senior, she found she was expected to cook morning and evening and do his washing. 'It felt like being physically and mentally exploited. I mean, I hate food and cooking – I keep a vase on top of my cooker,' she says, laughing.... Murata says she starts with her char...
