Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

p.s. Ian, I really love the ending that says you're still around, just less-orderly! ha ha! :)

Ian, I sent what you want read @ your funeral to a bunch of people, Atheist and not (the not Atheist people know I am one and are more open-minded).  I saved it.  I want it read at my funeral too.  It made me smile to read that.  Thanks for making my day!~ Melinda

Spread the Good Word, Sister Melinda. If I ever officiate at a funeral (being on Ordained Minister of the First Church of Atheism, I can) I'll use that text.

Comment by booklover on July 3, 2012 at 2:32pm

@ Ian.  First of all that cat pic is great!  We should ALL have a snow cone in this heat (and a LOT of the US has awful heat right now).  Second of all, the thing you have saved for your funeral is AWESOME.  I am going to send it to some of my Atheist friends if you don't mind.~ Melinda
