5 Simple Ways to Find Peace After a Divorce

Do this for yourself. Figuring out how to move on after divorce is really challenging because the end of your marriage itself is so traumatic. Loneliness takes over and your life gets ripped apart all at once and again and again. You struggle to find happiness, a new equilibrium, and a new way of living — on your own.

Fear of Embarrassment Is Ruining My Relationship

From a teen in Scotland: I find it very hard to function socially (jobs and relationships) because I get anxious that I’ll do something embarrassing to the point I’ll never stop thinking about it and sometimes it makes me physically sick. I can’t communicate with my boyfriend and our relationship is practically non existent because neither of us are good at socialising.

Grownup bullies might literally have less brains

A study finds grownup bullies' brains exhibit a smaller cortical surface area and less thickness in their gray matter.Bullies' executive function, motivation, and control of affect are likely affected.The adult brains of adolescent bullies who've outgrown antisocial behavior don't exhibit the same shortcomings. As we grow up, certainly one of the largest questions we grapple with is who we want to be. We're not talking about career choice, but rather the type of person we hope to become.Somewhe...

The life-long psychological effects your first love has on you, according to science

Biological researcher Helen Fisher's 2005 fMRI study on couples in love proved that romantic love is primarily a motivation system that can be similar to what we experience during addiction. Cognitive scientists at MIT explain that we experience peak processing and memory power at around age 18. We experience a lot of firsts (such as our first love) at a time when our brains are still developing or reaching this processing peak. These emotional and hormonal imprints of first love (at a time when...

It has been 30 years since a counsellor came up with the idea of five basic love languages, which include compliments and touch. Here’s how they can help you relate to your partnerPerhaps your partner is a gift-giver who often spots things they think you would love, from a funny-shaped leaf to a rare first edition, but is hurt when you don’t seem that grateful.

MIL Continues to Send Gifts Despite No Relationship

My husband decided a couple of months ago to cut ties completely with his mother after a few years of a toxic relationship in which she would constantly guilt and manipulate him during each conversation because she didn’t feel as though she got “quality” time with her grandchildren. Long story short, we slowly pushed back on visiting with his mother because she constantly complained about me or us and had nothing but a negative attitude when we visited. My husband doesn’t want a relationship but...

Ne me touche pas… the shift in sex and power sweeping France

Since #MeToo, France’s notoriously liberal attitudes to sex and sexual power are under the microscope as never beforeA few years ago I spent the weekend in a château deep in the rural Auvergne region of central France. Even more memorable than the crumbling property with its hectares of forest and decaying outbuildings, were the two elderly men to whom we were introduced when we arrived, who were enjoying an afternoon gin and tonic in the library. One – the father of my friend Guillaume – was Gu...

Conscious Conversations

I’m leaning into an inspired idea that I’ve been wanting to explore for a while now, which is to have deep and interesting conversations with various friends, record them, and share them – especially friends who are very into personal growth or who are doing empowering transformational work in the world. There are two parts to my intention. The first part is to give people more insight into real conversations that growth-oriented people are having about life, the universe, and everything. Ins...

Our eureka moment: what I learned from swapping breadwinning roles with my husband

Trading places with a partner can bring challenges. But if done well, you’ll reap the rewardsFour years ago, my husband Dan and I were a bottle of wine down in our draughty, small, city house, our son finally asleep in the boxroom upstairs.

Social media makes breakups worse, study says

According to a 2017 study, 71% of people reported feeling better (rediscovery of self and positive emotions) about 11 weeks after a breakup. But social media complicates this healing process.Even if you "unfriend", block, or unfollow, social media algorithms can create upsetting encounters with your ex-partner or reminders of the relationship that once was.Researchers at University of Colorado Boulder suggest that a "human-centered approach" to creating algorithms can help the system better unde...

Managing Your Relationship After An Accident Or Trauma

There is nothing more real than saying your vows: in sickness and in health, until death we do part. For almost every married couple, those words mean something strong and they mean that – no matter what – you stick by each other’s side. The weaker link leans on the strong when they need to, and the roles are often interchangeable.  A couple can go through a lot in their time together, but after a traumatic brain injury for one of you after an accident, things are going to change.

Gay dating app calls it quits

Chappy is ending its relationship with your phone, which means the only remaining apps for same-sex meetups are now Grindr, Tinder, OKCupid, Bumble, Scruff, Growlr, and if you’re kinky, Christian Mingle. Oh, and the several other smaller ones we’re not listing. In other words, it’s a saturated market out there, and ultimately Chappy couldn’t retain a dating pool big enough to thrive. The gay dating app will be folded into Bumble, which had been an investor since Chappy’s launch in 2017. AdBrid...
