Link Love (2013-04-30)

Thought-provoking “Michael Buble was wrong: Your soul mate shouldn’t be your everything. There is a pervasive idea that when we fall in love and choose someone to be our longterm partner that that person will be a tremendous lover, talk to with us about Tolstoy, take long walks on the beach with us, raise our …

Thought-provoking “The first problem is if you don’t trust yourself. That’s an important area to work with. Your relationship with yourself is like your relationship with anyone else. If you have a friend who is constantly late and breaking his word, not showing up when he says he will, eventually you’ll stop trusting that friend. …

Thought-provoking “Confession: I’m a crier. Actually, that’s not really a confession. If you know me in real life, you know that my eyes have released so much water that I could have probably revitalized a few dry riverbeds by now.

Writer’s Wednesday: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is a classic. I have been told over and over again (especially within the business world) that this is a must read book (ironically, for how much this book is recommended, it is rarely followed).

Thought-provoking Melissa Francis: The Truth About Super Women – Huffington Post “Sex is an art. There should be no shame in having to learn it, to practice it, to ask questions about it, to communicate with one’s partner about it, to plan for it, to read about it, to experiment with it. We shouldn’t have …

Writer’s Wednesday: The History of Love by Nicole Krauss

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss might at first glance sound like a romance novel. It’s not. It is true, however, that it deals with love, and also love in a romantic fashion. The History of Love is the story of an old man who taps on the radiator to make sure his buddy is still …

Thought-provoking “Shame diminishes our capacity for empathy. Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change. You can’t depend on empathetic connection to make a campaign effective, then crush the needed empathy with shame.” Public Shaming is a Better Example of “If it feels good – do it” than Teen Pregnancy – Brené Brown “The experiment: Ask …

Thought-provoking ‘You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.’ ~Mike Murdock How to Change Your Life: A User’s Guide – Zen Habits “Furthermore, because I learned to cum from watching porn (I had watched porn even before I had first ejaculated), I never even had the chance to learn how to …
