Yes! You Can Build New Habits That Last!! – Self Improvement Can Be Easy!!

What is it that always stops you from making the changes that you want to make? Or what makes you start and then give up. Is the problem inside you? Is the problem the environment you are in?
If you can’t find the problem when you think about it, just do a dummy run: Start a new pattern you want in your life and write down everything that happens. If you’re lucky, this might be the one that sticks. If you fail find the algorithm in your notes that sets you up to fail. Once you find that, find the way to eliminate it from your life or mindset.

The Dangers and Lesbophobia of 13 Reasons Why

As I write this I have just realised how long it has been since I have written an article or a proper story.

I mean, else that picture of my best friend and I posing as the world’s most famous fashion victims is twenty years old! There’s no way … But soon my self-denial had to shut itself up and admit that, yes one of the biggest and most influential comedies of the ’90s has reached its 25th anniversary. Time to look back on how it all begun. More

The Importance of Communication and Interpersonal Skills

A lot of people go through life unnecessarily unhappy and depressed. They feel unvalued and misunderstood, seeing no way out of whatever problem they are facing. Often, though, their issues could be solved easily, by doing one little thing.

Talking.

On Asexual Visibility

My name is Dannii Cohen, I am a new writer for She Knows. I am a feminist, an author and a psychologist. I am part of the LGBT and I am also an asexual. Ah, I bet that last part caught your attention. Some might know what this word means in biology, some might even know it can be applied to humans but most of you might be confused.

It has been scientifically proven that at-least one in hundred people is asexual. This number seems rather high. But despite this it’s the sexuality that is the most ignored. More
