Are you in a Relation with Peter Pan? The Wendy Syndrome

Peter Pan and Wendy 1

Psychologist Dan Kiley, who defined ‘Peter Pan Syndrome’ in 1983, also used the term ‘Wendy Syndrome’ to describe women who act like mothers with their partners or people close to them. Wendy is the woman behind Peter Pan.

She is the one making every decision, taking on all of “Peter Pan’s” responsibilities, and so, she justifies his unreliability. She is the overprotecting mother prototype. Both “Peter Pan” and “Wendy” do not acknowledge that they are having a problem, they aren’t aware of it.

A couple of hours ago, while I was lining up in a grocery store, there was this guy, in his early 20s, standing behind me and lecturing his girlfriend about „fitness and related stuff”. Having to listen to his lecture for couple of minutes – it was just my fault because I forgot to grab my headphones from home – I’ve not only realized that this guy’s aim was only his girlfriend’s shape, but not all of us are aware of the key importance of the physical activity.

The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. Why? I will only mention a few of them.

Animal equality a.k.a. Veganism – a new way of living?

Veganism is a controversial matter. Some of us state is not healthy, nor logical to change one’s diet over night, the others scream as loud as they can: we care about the animals, that’s why we are vegan!

Where lies the truth?

girls talking

The voice is a very important part of the nonverbal communication. Each time we speak, our voice tells the others something about us: gender, emotional state, our relationship with the person we are talking to, age, background, origin, level of education and so on. These data are included in small fragments of speech, that can be read remarkable accurate. We encode information about ourselves when we speak, the others decode this information (as well as they can).
