Jenny Connected

At some point in life, I expect most people will wonder what life’s all about, what it means, what’s the point? In a recent discussion that Iain had with Jordan Peterson, Peterson said that death is a friend of life (in Iain’s words, a friend of being) and a necessary stage in life.

Jenny Connected

Once the choice is made the need for acceptance and like-minded people becomes very strong: at the beginning the stress from explaining and defending “deviation from the norm” is very high and it helps a lot to be with people who share your views. Friends are found, choices made, routines are working.
