In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
It may seem counterintuitive but being good can be bad for you.
Sorry, say that again? Isn't being good what our parents and educators told us to be?
It's time to break the status quo!
Being good can mean becoming stuck in the self-defeating habits of perfectionism or people-pleasing. It can mean putting up with things you shouldn't or judging yourself harshly against impossible standards. In the quest to be good, we often forget to be kind to ourselves.
As a recovering perfectionist, Kate Witteveen knows what it is like to try to be all things to all people and lose yourself in the process. In 'Why Being Good can be Bad for You: How to Get Clarity, Confidence and Courage to Step out of Stuckness she shares her journey from compulsive good girl to burnt-out academic, how she figured out who she wanted to be instead, and when she had to be 'bad' to get it!
Drawing from psychology, neuroscience and real-life, this must-read book provides an unflinchingly honest account of the traps of perfectionism, and how to overcome them. It will enable you to understand why being good may indeed be bad for you, and how you can liberate yourself from the burden of impossible expectations.
