The School of Life

The School of Life is an organisation dedicated to helping people lead more fulfilled lives. We help people understand themselves, improve their relationships, their careers and their social lives - as well as find calm and get more out of their leisure hours. We do this through our films, our workshops and a range of our own books. You can find us online, in our London HQ and in welcoming branches around the world.

We publish one film a week, on Wednesdays at 14.00hrs GMT.

Dating When You've Had a Bad Childhood

 Dating is always a slightly daunting process, involving the need to gather our courage to reveal that we like someone - and that they may not like us... But we're not all the same in our levels of anxiety around the dating game. For some of us, dating is especially arduous for one particular reason that we may not have considered in enough depth: our childhoods...

Most people around us won’t be any the wiser, but with greater or lesser subtlety, we will be scanning: suggesting coffees and lunches, accepting every invitation, giving out our email addresses and thinking with unusual care about where to sit on train journeys. Sometimes the rigmarole will be joyful; at times, a bore. But for a portion of us, as many as one in four, it will count as one of the hardest things we ever have to do. Fun won’t remotely come into it. This will be closer to trauma. And it will be so for a reason that can feel more humiliating still: because, a long time ago now, we had a very bad childhood - one whose impact and legacy we still haven’t yet wholly mastered. It may not look like it, but babies are also looking out for love. They’re not going out in party smocks or slipping strangers’ their phone numbers. They are lying more or less immobile in cribs and are capable of little besides the occasional devastating cute smile. But they too are looking out for someone’s arms to feel safe in; for someone who can soothe them, someone who can stroke their head, tell them it will all be OK when things feel desperate and lend them a breast to suck on.

Can People Change?

 We're often in a position of deeply hoping that someone on whom we depend might change: become (perhaps) less defensive or less angry, kinder or more thoughtful...

On Disliking Oneself

 Many of us are walking around with an enormous secret burden: we deeply hate ourselves.

The One Question We Need to Ask Ourselves When We Feel Anxious

 The problem with anxious moods is that they often hide from us what it is we're actually concerned about. It feels like we're worrying about this or that, when in reality, the origin of our anxiety actually lies elsewhere. Here is a wonderfully simple tool to learn what is really on our mind - in order that we can start to address it and be liberated from it.

It squats in the middle of our minds and refuses to let anything else in or through. Though the anxiety causes us great pain, it denies any attempts to be questioned, analysed, probed or reconfigured. We are both terrified and unable to think beyond our terror. Our thoughts become low, relentless, repetitive, stymied things: returning again and again to the issue of whether the door is locked, the accounts were signed off or the social media account is not under attack. Anxiety dominates over and excludes any other form of mental activity; all that will be in our minds is terror.

How to Test Your Emotional Maturity

 Knowing how emotionally mature someone is can be the most important thing to know about them; but this knowledge may take (painful) years to acquire. This is why we've devised a very quick and very reliable test that can - in a few minutes - help us to ascertain our own and other people's level of emotional maturity. It all has to do with how one responds to vulnerability.

We can be fifty-five on the outside and four and a half in terms of our impulses and habitual manner of communicating - just as we can be on the threshold of adulthood physically while an emotional sage within. In order to assess our own and others’ emotional development, we can make use of a single deceptively simple question that quickly gets to the core of our underlying emotional ‘age’.

The Capacity to Give up on People

Intimacy and Closeness

 The weird thing about relationships is that the more we get to know someone, the harder it can be to desire them - and vice versa.

Why We Should Dare to Be More Selfish

 We're taught to think very badly of selfishness but in truth, completely obliterating ourselves and living only for others and their wants (as it can be so easy to do) may be a fast route to depression and inner numbness. We may need - on occasion - to do something that sounds rather surprising: relearn how to be beautifully and intelligently selfish.

We must - wherever possible - learn to think more of other people, keep in mind how often we fail to see things from their point of view, and be aware of the small and large ways in which we disadvantage and ignore collective interests. Being good means, at its most basic, putting other people more squarely at the center of our lives. But for some of us, the problem isn’t so much that we are heedless to this advice, rather that we take it far too closely and remorselessly to heart. So mindful are we of the risks of selfishness, we run into an opposite danger: an abnegation of the self, a modesty that borders on self-erasure, an automatic impulse to give everything over to competing parties, a shyness about pressing oneself forward and a manic inability to say ‘no’ or cause the slightest frustration to others.” MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Visit us in person at our London HQ: www.theschooloflife.com/london/about-us/ Watch more films on SELF in our playlist: bit.ly/TSOLself You can submit translations and transcripts on all of our videos here: tr-me.com/utitle-timedtext_cs_panel?c=UC7IcJI8PUf5Z3zKxnZvTBog&tab=2 Find out how more here: support.google.com/youtube/answer/6054623?hl=en-GB SOCIAL MEDIA Feel free to follow us at the links below: Facebook: facebook.com/theschooloflifelondon/ Twitter: twitter.com/TheSchoolOfLife Instagram: instagram.com/theschooloflifelondon/ CREDITS Produced in collaboration with: Gabriella Marsh gabriellamarsh.com/ Title animation produced in collaboration with Vale Productions www.valeproductions.co.uk/

The Hard Work of being Lazy

 We live in a culture that hugely values activity and 'hard work'. But - paradoxically - the hardest work we can sometimes do is to stop rushing around and, for once, sit with our thoughts, analyse our feelings, take stock of where we are and understand ourselves better. From the outside, it might look as though we're being lazy. But we're in fact doing the hard work of processing our emotions, in a way that can be hugely helpful to our mental well-being and, in its way, remarkably difficult.

All we have an appetite for, it seems, is to loll on the sofa and maybe dip randomly into a book, wander down to the shops and buy a packet of biscuits or spend an hour or so soaking in the bath. We might, at an extreme, merely want to sit by the window and stare at the clouds.

 We are collectively obsessed with the idea that an attractive person is, first and foremost, someone who looks terrific.

The Hardest Person in the World To Break up With

 The hardest people to break up with are those who tell us they love us while, simultaneously, not in fact behaving in a loving way towards us.

Why You Don't Need to Be Exceptional

How to Survive a Loss of Reputation

 We spend an inordinate amount of time worrying 'what other people think.' But for some of us, there may come a time when we need to step beyond living for our reputation in the eyes of others - and have to learn how to cope without the warm blanket of social status. Here is a guide.

It’s what you will get reduced to when you aren’t illuminated by love.

 6 aylar önce

 We spend an inordinate amount of time worrying 'what other people think.' But for some of us, there may come a time when we need to step beyond living for our reputation in the eyes of others - and have to learn how to cope without the warm blanket of social status.

How To Know Yourself

 One of the hardest things in the universe to understand is the interior of our own minds: we can have spent decades on the earth before we've grasped even very basic things about who we are and how we function.

How to Overcome Trauma

 A great many of us have - in one way or another - been traumatised somewhere in our past. Not only have we suffered greatly, we are likely not to have been able properly to process and digest what we have gone through.

How to Get Attention Without Attention-seeking

 It can be painfully scary to ask a partner if they still love us. So at points when we feel insecure, we may be tempted to go in for a very understandable but very counter--productive strategy: attention-seeking, that is irritating or nagging them to notice us, rather than making ourselves sufficiently vulnerable to ask them for the reassurance we crave.

How to Approach Strangers at a Party

 One of the most intimidating things we're ever called to do is to introduce ourselves to a stranger in a social context.

A metre away from you, a group of people are chatting animatedly. Someone is telling an anecdote, it might be something about a train ride they took or the mishaps on someone’s bicycle, and their companions break in occasionally with rich laughter and stories of their own. The group as a whole seem confident and attractive and the main narrator especially so. But there may as well be a high solid brick wall or a lamprey-filled moat between you and they. There is resolutely no way you could ever move in to say hello.

Knowing how to pull this off isn't a small question of etiquette, it goes right to the heart of knowing how to feel we deserve to exist and need not feel crippled by shame.

A metre away from you, a group of people are chatting animatedly. Someone is telling an anecdote, it might be something about a train ride they took or the mishaps on someone’s bicycle, and their companions break in occasionally with rich laughter and stories of their own. The group as a whole seem confident and attractive and the main narrator especially so. But there may as well be a high solid brick wall or a lamprey-filled moat between you and they. There is resolutely no way you could ever move in to say hello. You smile your characteristic weak, loser’s smile, pretend to study the bookshelf - and leave the gathering ten minutes later.” MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Visit us in person at our London HQ: www.theschooloflife.com/london/about-us/ Watch more films on SELF in our playlist: bit.ly/TSOLself You can submit translations and transcripts on all of our videos here: tr-me.com/utitle-timedtext_cs_panel?c=UC7IcJI8PUf5Z3zKxnZvTBog&tab=2 Find out how more here: support.google.com/youtube/answer/6054623?hl=en-GB SOCIAL MEDIA Feel free to follow us at the links below: 2KTWiZv Facebook: facebook.com/theschooloflifelondon/ Twitter: twitter.com/TheSchoolOfLife Instagram: instagram.com/theschooloflifelondon/ CREDITS Produced in collaboration with: Alexandra Balan www.sashaanimates.com/about Sound Design: Volkan Kiziltug, www.VolkanKiziltug.com Music: "Chill Wave" by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com), Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License, creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Title animation produced in collaboration with Vale Productions www.valeproductions.co.uk/ #SchoolOfLife #HowTo #Socialize

The Importance of Kissing

 Regularly exchanging a kiss with one's partner may seem a trivial matter, but in truth, it creates a vital point of connection which might help to save a relationship over the long term.

Why Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs Matters

 Maslow's Hierarchy, (or Pyramid), of Needs is one of the central ideas in modern economics and sociology. The work of a once little-known American psychologist, it has grown into an indispensable guide to understanding the modern world. This film explains who Maslow was, what his pyramid is, and why it matters so much.

Why We Should Expect Less Of Love

 Expecting that a romantic partner could answer all of our needs might sound very beautiful; but such idealism is in reality rather counter-productive, rendering us impatient, angry and ultimately bitter.

Should You Complain to Your Parents About Your Childhood?

 Many things go wrong in a childhood and so, understandably, we might want to try (as adults) to have a conversation with our parents about what happened when we were small.

Why Did They End the Relationship?

How to Avoid Being a Bore

The Problem With Being Too Logical in Love

 There's a particular kind of argument that can take place in a relationship when one person starts to be - provocatively - too 'rational' and logical. It sounds like this might be a clever and good move, but excessive logic can constitute a kind of obtuseness all of its own.

We are used to thinking highly of reason and logic. We are not normally enemies of evidence and rationality. How then could these ingredients become problematic in the course of love? But from close up, considered with sufficient imagination, our suspicion can make a lot of sense. When we are in difficulties what we may primarily be seeking from our partners is a sense that they understand what we are going through. We are not looking for answers (the problems may be too large for there to be any obvious ones) so much as comfort, reassurance and fellow-feeling. In the circumstances, the deployment of an overly logical stance may come across not as an act of kindness, but as a species of disguised impatience.” MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Visit us in person at our London HQ: bit.ly/2Sq72Cl Watch more films on RELATIONSHIPS in our playlist: bit.ly/TSOLrelationships You can submit translations and transcripts on all of our videos here: tr-me.com/utitle-timedtext_cs_panel?c=UC7IcJI8PUf5Z3zKxnZvTBog&tab=2 Find out how more here: support.google.com/youtube/answer/6054623?hl=en-GB SOCIAL MEDIA Feel free to follow us at the links below: 2SseZ9X Facebook: facebook.com/theschooloflifelondon/ Twitter: twitter.com/TheSchoolOfLife Instagram: instagram.com/theschooloflifelondon/ CREDITS Produced in collaboration with: Creative Seed creativeseed.co.za/ Title animation produced in collaboration with Vale Productions www.valeproductions.co.uk/

Arguments When There Is Too Little Sex

 There's a special kind of argument that can arise in a couple when, for a range of reasons, there hasn't been enough sex.

Arguments When There Is Too Little Sex

 10 aylar önce

 There's a special kind of argument that can arise in a couple when, for a range of reasons, there hasn't been enough sex. Unfortunately, couples tend to feel too ashamed to mention what the argument is really about - and so squabble about essentially unrelated things. Even worse, the fact there are arguments makes it ever less likely that sex will actually take place in the future. The couple is stuck in a cycle that needs to be understood - and then broken.

Where Are the Creative Jobs?

 Many of us want a job that is 'creative', but the reality of the jobs market can seriously challenge our hopes. Why are there not more creative positions?

Why We Sometimes Try to Make Our Partner Sad

Why It's Useful to Think of Yourself As a Sinner

 We're generally taught nowadays to think very well of ourselves - and look with horror at religions' suggestions that we conceive of ourselves as 'sinners'.

How to Cope With an Avoidant Partner

What We Should Eat on a Date

 Choosing what to eat on a date might sound like a very trivial and inconsequential move but if a date is an audition for love, then food can play a subtle and significant role in communicating who we are and why we might be a suitable match.

No One Really Knows

 What often holds us back from taking the initiative is the sense that other people out there must know better than we do. But in a great many cases, there is a more exciting, slightly scary and at heart thrilling idea to discover: that no one really knows. By this we mean that, in unexpected areas, there is no high up authority that can tell us for sure what is going to work or not, what is good or bad, why things are the way they are. Recognition of this can liberate us: we can work it out for ourselves; we can take take our own steps towards making sense of things, we can be original.

How Much Does Luck Decide Our Lives?

How To Fight In Love

 Arguments in relationships are always tricky but given that they are also inevitable, the skill we need to learn is how to fight well rather than not fight at all. By 'well' we mean, with charity, compassion, understanding, humour, intelligence and good will. Here is a guide to the best sorts of arguments in relationships.

Their relationships are marked by enormous outward politeness; they say thank you a lot; they make each other cups of tea; they can look rather horrified when there’s a mention of a squabble in someone else’s life. It’s understandable if they’re privately a little pleased with themselves. But surface harmony isn’t, in reality, any reliable sign of health in love because it’s impossible to try to merge two lives without regularly encountering deep sources of incompatibility. A lack of arguments is more likely to be a sign that we have given up caring than a superhuman achievement of maturity.” MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Visit us in person at our London HQ: bit.ly/2E9gKl2 Watch more films on RELATIONSHIPS in our playlist: bit.ly/TSOLrelationships You can submit translations and transcripts on all of our videos here: tr-me.com/utitle-timedtext_cs_panel?c=UC7IcJI8PUf5Z3zKxnZvTBog&tab=2 Find out how more here: support.google.com/youtube/answer/6054623?hl=en-GB SOCIAL MEDIA Feel free to follow us at the links below: 2reyMJU/ Facebook: facebook.com/theschooloflifelondon/ Twitter: twitter.com/TheSchoolOfLife Instagram: instagram.com/theschooloflifelondon/ CREDITS Produced in collaboration with: Lois de Silva www.loisdesilva.com/

How to Be Attractive on a Date

What to Do If You Hate Small Talk

 One of the reasons many of us find social encounters difficult is that they force into that particular conversational byway called small-talk - where we have to pay a lot of attention to the weather and the upcoming holidays.

Existentialism and Dating

 At first glance, nothing immediately seems to connect the business of dating with the European philosophical movement of Existentialism.

We gingerly enter a diner but, as we take in the warmth and convivial atmosphere, are struck by acute self-consciousness. We blush crimson and clumsily turn to leave before an approaching waiter has had the chance to offer us a seat.

Who Initiates Sex and why it Matters so Much

 The issue of who shows an interest in having a physical relationship in a couple might be mistaken for rather trivial; after all, what counts is that it happens, not that one or the other party initiates.

The Danger of Being Too Polite in Love

 Being polite is a wonderful and hugely necessary quality; but there can - in love - be moments when politeness becomes an impediment to sincere feeling. We may at points need to give free rein to our resentments and annoyances and say it like it is - if we're later to feel properly loving and spontaneous.

The Danger of Being Too Polite in Love

 Yıl önce

 Being polite is a wonderful and hugely necessary quality; but there can - in love - be moments when politeness becomes an impediment to sincere feeling. We may at points need to give free rein to our resentments and annoyances and say it like it is - if we're later to feel properly loving and spontaneous. Good relationships are filled with respect, but they also know moments of proper frankness. There are moments when we need to put extreme politeness to one side.

When Someone we love has died

 The death of a loved one is pretty much the saddest thing that can befall us. The French 16th century philosopher Montaigne once wrote: 'To philosophise is to learn to die.'

How Can We Grow Emotionally?

 From our earliest days, all of us are set on a path towards physical growth and maturity. What is less well known is that there are forces within us that - in comparable ways - push us towards emotional growth and maturity.

Should We Play It Cool When We Like Someone?

How to Cope When You’ve Been Left

Why Avoidant and Anxious Partners Find It Hard to Split Up

 Fractious couples are often made up of one party who is 'avoidant' (hiding their intimacy needs) and one who is 'anxious' (nagging and pressuring counter productively for their intimacy needs to be met).

There is, in such couplings, a constant game of push and pull. The anxiously attached party typically complains - more or less loudly - that their partner is not responsive enough: they accuse them of being emotionally distant, withholding, cold and perhaps physically uninterested too. The avoidant lover, for their part, stays relatively quiet but in their more fed-up moments, complains that the anxious party is far too demanding, possibly ‘mad’ and, as they put it pejoratively, ‘needy’.

What Is Your Attachment Style?

 Attachment theory refers to a set of ideas formulated by psychologists in the 1960s that gives us an exceptionally useful guide to how we behave in relationships. Knowing whether we are secure, anxious or avoidant in our attachment patterns gives us a vocabulary with which to get on top of some very tricky dynamics and helps us grow into more predictable and more joyful companions in love.

The Secret to Leaving Comments Online

 Reading the Comments sections beneath films and articles can leave one feeling certain that humanity must have gone mad - or is inherently vicious and unkind. The truth is a good deal less tragic: it's just that we've never been taught how to comment or how to spot the connection between our own unhappiness and alienation - and our desire to take vengeance in the anonymous digital world.
