Links I Love: Volume 4

Hello people. This one is late because I was under the weather over the weekend. I’m better now, but I’ll probably still go to the hospital.
Anyway. This week I bring you articles on sexual abuse and why we should talk to kids about sex early; what saying thank you means in different cultures (one Indian and one Chinese); why you shouldn’t care (in general); the best piece of marriage advice ever; and why you should pause before saying amen to prayers (there are 2 articles on this actually).
There’s an interesting article on this widely experienced phenomenon now tagged “parental Stockholm syndrome“. There’s an article discussing why daughters don’t have to get married, and another on why there’s no big deal in a man taking his wife’s surname (if you don’t read any other article, you should read this one). There’s an article on procrastination, the “procrastination doom loop” and how to break the loop (great read, and actually very helpful).
There’s another interesting article on “the beauty of the brothel” (another one you should read) and a true story that takes catfishing to a whole new level. There’s a work of fiction that I loved.. It’s titled “You’re not dying, and this breaks your heart
Enjoy and let me know your comments on any article!
