Our Search for Belonging: How Our Needs to Connect Is Tearing Us Apart | Howard J Ross

Mr. Ross opens the book with these questions: “Why is it that we are drawn so strongly to identify with groups, how does that impact us, and what can we do about it? What is this thing we call belonging and why is it so important to us?“ He explores these questions through politics, [...]

Last Word Bird

Do you have any birds in your life? That person who has to have the last word in a discussion or argument? Maybe you fall into this sometimes? How committed to being right are you? It feels good when you are right, when your argument succeeds. And sometimes we invest a lot of energy in the [...]
