Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words … will ruin our relationship.
Have you ever put off discussing a difficult topic with your partner, because it will inevitably lead to screams and slamming the door? Have you ever said something in the middle of a conversation that unintentionally (or perhaps deliberately) angered your partner? Have you ever finished a conversation with a feeling of frustration, inaudibility, incomprehensibility? You are not alone; communication and conflict resolution is hard work.

Sometimes the way you communicate (or not communicate) is a real cause of conflict. Continue reading
Haptophobia is one of the most obscure phobias for others. It means that such people are afraid of the touches of strangers. Holders of a phobia do not want to contact others, because they experience fear and panic attacks.

The socio-demographic group falling under the definition of “youth” has a higher level of perception and acceptance of modernization of society.
It is easier for youth to adapt to modern conditions of existence; it is easier to master innovations in various fields. Culture, politics, social and economic activities and much more do not stand still, guided only by the cultural heritage and experience of their ancestors. All social sectors are changing, gaining new modern outlines. It is extremely difficult for people who have crossed the youth frontier to accept such changes because of the deeply rooted conservative views. Over time, the reins of society are passed into the hands of the younger generation. That is why it is so important to create favorable conditions for the self-realization of youth, helping young people to become harmonious, comprehensively developed personalities. Continue reading
