Why join Being Human?
Because if anything defines us human beings, it’s that we’re not content just to survive—we want to thrive, to live fully and richly. We are storytellers and the story we’re most invested in is the story of our own lives.
Being Human, therefore, is about what it means to live meaningfully, and I explore this in weekly essays and notes through the lenses of psychology, culture and faith. Here’s some essays to give you a sense of what I write about:
Mind your body: How the two became separated in our minds
Good art demands good critics: My love-hate relationship with criticism
We believe what we find believable: Why “facts” don’t matter as much as we wish
I’m Christian and I don’t believe mental illness is “spiritual”: How I reconcile faith and practice
Therapists are the new priests: Need I say more? 🙂
