Für eine glückliche Beziehung gibt es kein genaues Rezept, das für alle funktioniert. Tatsächlich bestehen Beziehungen oft aus zwei Menschen mit verschiedenen Hintergründen, die Unterschiedliches erlebt haben und ihr Bestes geben, damit alles wie am Schnürchen läuft. Manchen Paaren scheint das aber besser zu gelingen als anderen – viel besser. „Viele der glücklichsten Pärchen haben eines gemeinsam: Sie erwarten keine Perfektion, sondern sind sich dessen bewusst, dass jeder Mensch seine Macken h...

A Pastor Embraces Slowness

I recently received an interesting email from a Lutheran pastor named Amy. She had read some of my recent essays on slow productivity (e.g., 1 2 3), and heard me talk about this embryonic concept on my podcast, so she decided to send me her own story about slowing down. “A few years ago, I realized I was on the verge of burnout with my job,” she began. To compensate for this alarming state of affairs, Amy took the following steps… She quit social media. She took off her phone any site or app th...

Gone Girl Ending Explained: She Wants You To Be Your Best

Adapted from Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel by the author herself, David Fincher's "Gone Girl" isn't a movie that screams "aspirational" in the way that a show like "Ted Lasso" does. However, for a certain breed of cinephile -- someone who prefers dark dramas to rom-coms -- "Gone Girl" might be the only date movie you'll ever need.Fincher's previous film, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," marketed itself as "The Feel-Bad Movie of Christmas." Superficially, none of his movies are what a perso...

"Instead of trying to carpet the world, put on slippers."

Said a commenter, at WaPo, on an "Ask Amy" column about a letter from a woman who wanted another woman's husband to stop talking so much and so obnoxiously on Facebook. The larger issue is the way people expect the wife to control her husband and think it's a wife's job to be an intermediary on their behalf. It's always the woman's job to tend to social harmony. A secondary issue is that people who are unhappy with interactions occurring on Facebook don't seem to realize you can just click a but...

Shameless: How Old The Characters Are At The Beginning And End Of The Show

With all the anarchy in the Gallagher household, it can be difficult to keep track of how old the characters in Shameless are from the beginning to the end of the show. When the comedy-drama series debuted on Showtime in 2011, all of the Gallagher kids (except for Fiona) were still minors. By the time the series wrapped up with the season 11 finale in the spring of 2021, all except Liam are adults with jobs and - in some cases - kids of their own.Monica Gallagher had six children altogether bef...

The Mandalorian Star Ming-Na Wen And Missi Pyle Join Jukebox Musical Glitter & Doom

My friend Amy taught me that “craven” doesn’t mean what I thought it meant. I’ve been using it to mean, “selfish in a particularly short-sighted way.” It actually means fearful and gutless. But, exploring the thesaurus, I discovered that it also means “dastardly.” I was sure that Snidely Whiplash was a dastardly villain. A dastardly deed must be something bad.
