What’s the Problem with Promiscuity?

What’s the Problem with Promiscuity?

Earlier today I’ve been looking at my old photo albums from about 7-8 years ago. Then I was in my twenties and just started working in a summer resort called Sunnybeach.

We were all young and beautiful, dressed up, hair done, make up, high heels and sexy clothing. This is how I looked as well, this...

Wind of Change

Wind of Change

It was 1990 when Scorpions released their song “Wind of Change.” So it must have been 1990 or 1991 when my neighbor started to abuse me. It means I was 7 or 8 years old.

“I am Not What Happened to Me, I am What I Choose to Become”

“I am Not What Happened to Me, I am What I Choose to Become”

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” – Carl Jung Studying for my upcoming History of Psychology exam I discovered this thought of Carl Jung, the father of Analytical Psychology. Though this quote made me think more about the Humanistic view, Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers self-actualization theories, and this is how I apply this view to ”our“ issue –surviving child sexual abuse:   Yes, it happened to me. But does it...
