There are many reasons to get rid of your skin. In private and at work. However, with unpleasant consequences: instead of serenity, you suffer from tension, confusion, loss of control and frustration. Letting off steam may bring short-term relief — but it is better not to let the anger boil up in the first place. Or in short: to be more relaxed. This is exactly what many find difficult: Instead of calmness and imperturbability, there is excitement, rage and fits of anger. But it doesn’t have to be. …

Grit and success are like twins, they are inseparable. At least that is the conviction of the American psychologist Angela Lee Duckworth, who deals with this personality trait in her book “Grit.

Imagination is the eye of the soul. Or as Jonathan Swift once put it: “Imagination is the gift of seeing invisible things.” It is the driving force behind new ideas and innovations, the engine of all creativity. With imagination we can increase our motivation as well as our possibilities. Provided that the imaginatively inspired thoughts become reality.

But that is the problem of the imagination: Too much realism is poison for them, nips them in the bud, locks them in the narrow cell of what is currently feasible. “Impossible!” Shouts the realist and reviles the visionary as “fantasist”. Hasty! We…

You already know that all narcissists use manipulation and tricks to deceive even the smartest people.

No matter what situation you get into, you have a tactic ready.

We all know that they trust their ability to play a role (and a powerful one at that) that is attuned to each and every person they are targeting for the current manipulation.

They can easily tune in to anyone they want to trick to get the most out of them and then let them down.

But there are a few things you didn’t know about narcissists.

I know you thought this girl just couldn’t do it.

She wouldn’t be brave and brave enough. She would never have the courage to do the right thing.

I know that you firmly believed that she would always love you more than herself.

That you would always be her priority no matter what you do.

That she would never say goodbye to you for good, and that all of her threats to leave you were just empty words.

You know all the malicious traits he has and which he often uses…

This year I promise to finally let go of you. To leave you in the past where you belong and to start a new chapter in my life.

In this year, I promise that I will stop missing you and that I will learn to live without you.

That you will stop being the first thing on my mind when I wake up and the last picture I see when I try to fall asleep.

I promise I’ll stop looking at our old photos and hearing the songs that remind me of you.

I promise myself that I will not…
