New article on Self-Archeology blog! This one is about two aspects of fear of intimacy.

A person asks: "The longer I know someone, the more anxious I feel around them. Why is that?"

Answer: "It is hard to say for sure without knowing a person’s history and the particular situation they are in. Based on my personal and professional experience, someone who feels increasingly anxious around others is afraid of the relationship becoming more close and more intimate. Not necessarily in a romantic or sexual way (although it can definitely be that, too), but just knowing each other better, being more vulnerable, and so on.

Now why is that?"

Hi, everyone! Some of you may know that I am working on a big book project. While the first draft of the book is being edited right now, I have just finished another, much smaller project that is a guide to help people start with their self-improvement process called Self-Work Starter Kit. The ideas offered here are simple, actionable and can be implemented today. For more information, see this link: http://www.selfarcheology.com/self-work-starter-kit.html

**You can buy the guide by ordering it for 4.99 USD (6.75 CAD) or get it for free by subscribing to Self-Archeology Newsletter.**

Cheers!
Darius

A new video! This is an example of Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome. It's not just a story for a movie; it actually happens in real life. Sometimes to the same extreme degree as here, other times in more subtle ways.

A new video on why people get angry or distressed when you say no, or stand up for yourself, or express a preference – and how it is related to boundaries and self-esteem.

A new video on Self-Archeology YouTube channel!
"Robots that steal human jobs should pay taxes, Gates says," Fox News says. What does it all mean? I comment on this article and on the concepts of a job, self-responsibility, "stealing jobs," and technological progress.

A new video on Self-Archeology's YouTube channel! The following is an edited audio clip from the Wrestling Soup podcast, where the hosts comment on Adrian Peterson's vicious assault of his child, and on beating children in general. It's an older case that was documented in 2014, but, as always, the important things are observations and principles. And the principle here is that it is harmful to assault children.

A new video I made a few months ago and didn't find time to publish until now. It's a short one (2 minutes) on a tactic of Appeal to Emotion people use to get others do what they want them to do. It is used in sales, marketing, advertising, politics, media, public speaking, personal life, and it is painfully common.

I want to start the new year on an uplifting note, so I wrote a new article on treating children with respect in daily interactions.

"If you are a relatively healthy person, you treat your fellow human beings with respect. You meet someone, you say hello, you smile back, and so on. Now, since children are smaller than us and have much less life experience, it is easy to forget that they are human beings deserving decent treatment, too—one might argue even more than adults do. And yet, more often than not, children are engaged with as if they are fundamentally inferior."

Read the article here, and feel free to share it with others:
