[ 2 min read ] You tell them that you don’t want any money or help from them (now or after their death) and you pick the thing that you want. They’ve just lost their major argument (source of power) — their financial involvement. As long as they invest money, or think... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Step 1. When other people tell you what you should do with / in your life, ignore it. The assumption that they (someone else than you) know better is ridiculous. Step 2. Trust yourself and your ability to make good choices. You want only the... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] If I had to guess I would always err on the side of saying that someone else also had the same thought I had, or came up with the same (or very similar) idea, theory, philosophy I came up with. Or that sooner or later... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] It’s only their idea. It’s how they see it. It’s probably also how the majority of people whom they grew up with (among) see it. That a certain person told you that something is wise, or stupid, the right thing to do, or the wrong... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] Is not telling your mother you’re gay love? Because your father told you that it would kill her? Should you listen to him (take what he said at face value — not test his assumptions)? Or should you do the opposite (not take what he said at... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] My son is 12. I remember that around the age of 8 (maybe even 7) he and his colleagues (other boys) started making jokes about gays. I’m pretty certain that at least 99% of them didn’t even know what the word meant in adult language,... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I think someone played a massive prank on us. As a matter of fact it’s probably the biggest, most hilarious prank ever and it will stay this way. Who played this prank on us? I have no idea, but here is one idea of how... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] But only if what you do is your choice. Only if you don’t listen to people, don’t ask them what you should or shouldn’t do in life. Only if you chase after your dreams no matter how hard it is. Only if you believe in... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] A guy named Parker wanted to know how he can gain support from his parents for, as he put it, wanting to pursue a career in secondary education, when they only care that he has a “respectable” and “rewarding” job (i.e. lots of money). I... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] It’s ridiculous to compare the marriages from the days past to marriages today and conclude that people were in some way better (because there weren’t so many divorces, people didn’t give up on their partners so easily). I give this example about marriages because it... Continue reading
