The Psychology of Value – Culture

Carrying on from yesterday’s post, I noted how this concept of value stems from our childhoods. How we internally form an attachment to particular items we deem as ‘ours’  from a young age. Yet when comparing this globally, there are certain cultures where regardless of age, this trend does not appear. For example in a... Continue Reading →

The Psychology of Value

What do you think is more valuable, the price of these rings in the picture, or, the relationship symbolised by them? No rush to answer! How about the question below instead, as a continuation from yesterday's post:   If I gifted you a Swiss chocolate bar to begin with then a few moments later asked... Continue Reading →

Peanuts To A Monkey

They say religion is used to control the masses when really the truth is that it’s money. We give value to pieces of paper and metal, to invisible numbers forever changing in our online accounts. As humans, as a society, we have given value to something which if you really think about it is valueless.... Continue Reading →

Poem: Trust

Trust is like trying to catch a spawning salmon in a freshly flowing river. You catch it! Then all too soon it slips from your tiny grasp. Whether it's trusting others or trusting yourself. Trust never seems to want to last.   Are we blinded by bullsh*t or beauty? All we need is for someone... Continue Reading →

Man over beauty. I'm not a feminist, But a minority of men give me reason I should be.   Are you threatened by... Continue Reading →

Why You & I Both Hate Shopping

Nothing sinks my heart further into the pit of my stomach than the sight of two mums fighting over the same cable-knit jumper in the 'Winter' aisle, or better yet, one of them fighting with yours truly. Not that I would ever buy a cable-knit jumper or anything remotely resembling it but the point still... Continue Reading →

ASMR – Does It Work On You?

Sometimes I have out-of-body body moments and starkly  realise that I've just been entranced by some sorcerer on YouTube swishing saliva about in her mouth, repeating the word 'stipple' about a million times and making weird butterfly motions with her fingers. Please help me! Is anyone else grossly engrossed by this phenomenon? Some of my... Continue Reading →

Poem – Shy

I'm Shy. Is that ok? I know I should meet your eyes more than sometimes. But I don't. Should I be ashamed?   I get nervous when around strangers. Find I become a stranger in myself. I feel paranoid of the dangers, That lurk just behind the shelf.   I'm angry for being this way.... Continue Reading →
