It’s a good thing that we’re starting to turn a critical eye to aspects of our lives that have been considered ‘normal’ for centuries. The question whether or not horseback riding is exploitation is a valid one, but in this blog post I explain why it’s not a simple yes-or-no situation.
Have you ever struggled to understand your conversation partner while there wasn’t even that much noise around? Or have you ever been on the receiving end of that situation, and found yourself frustrated having to repeat yourself? Then hopefully, this post will clear up a lot about auditory processing issues.
“Just wait until you’re older.” How often have you heard that when you told someone you don’t want children? I know of a dozen good reasons to not want children, regardless of your age. I’m about to voice some unpopular opinions on parenthood and children, but that’s what I’m here for. Changing the world one taboo at a time.
My goodness, it’s been quiet here for far too long. Even though ‘write a new blog post’ was on my to-do list almost every day, it took me this long to actually get back to writing again. And the reason? Good old-fashioned chronic fatigue, a lack of inspiration for a post that doesn’t require the […]
Spoons and pots are obviously handy kitchen utensils, but did you know they’re also really useful as analogies for the way the human mind works?
Time and time again, perfectionism has proven itself to be a worthy opponent. It used to control my life when I was younger, but even though it’s lost its all-encompassing power, it’s still one of my life’s greatest enemies, and one that this blog was designed to tackle.

I want to share with you a part of that struggle, which you can read about in today’s post.
Would you kill a mosquito, but not a cat if it bit you? Would you kill a bug just because it’s disgusting? Would you kill an animal, end a life, for convenience? In this blog post I want to share my view on the lives of other beings, and the considerations I go through if I’m faced with the decision to kill or let live.
The debate between meat eaters and not-so-much-meat-eaters has pretty much always been a hot one. But recently I read a couple of arguments coming from meat eaters that had me scratching the back of my head. In this post, I delve a little deeper into the psychology behind those remarks, and why the not-so-much-meat-eaters generally are not held in such high regard.
In a time when pretty much all of us want nothing more than to be able to return to the way things used to be – hugging people and shaking hands and cutting loose at festivals – we’re all being put under a lot of pressure.

Around my blog, you’ll find several inspiring quotes attributed to Mahātmā Gandhi. I received feedback from a friend, who asked me the very valid question if it would be wise to include his quotes in my blog, considering his opinions on women and sexuality, among other things.
