Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 832
Latest Activity: 8 hours ago

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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Glad you are here Sylvia!  We are here to listen to you and it's AWESOME that you are refusing to ignore your intelligence.  There are MANY of us here that agree with you, so don't feel alone in the world.~Melinda

Joan, give the credit to Courage Campaign, they issued the poster.

I admire and envy Sally Ride for her courage and intelligence and that she really went for the dream of going to outer space and adding to our knowledge and understanding.  That her partner cannot get the benefits which would be her right if she were a HE positively INFURIATES ME.

This inequity cannot be allowed to stand.

Welcome Sylvia! There are some really great people here, very supportive and warm, you've found a good home and we're happy to have your friendship!

@Skeycat - you get a massive /head nod/ on that commentary, I can't tell you how tired I am of all this hate and pardon me for saying it, horses**t, but it's having a positive effect on my workout and meditation schedule!

Sylvia Gibbons, I am glad you are on this site. When 99% of the world (I exaggerate) disagrees with your position, life can seem pretty lonely. I don't know what your issues are, but this is a good place to take a risk, test your ideas, and pay attention to feedback. Sometimes some people get pretty rough in their criticism of new ideas, but there are those here who appreciate those who ask questions, make statements and then survive unscathed. Many of my ideas have been challenged an many have been supported. Either way, I am stronger because of the discussions. I'm sure you will enjoy your experiences here.

sk8eycat, I'm reposting your Sally Ride poster on Facebook, may I give you credit? Also on my site here. Thanks!

Tammy: That picture isn't my property....share it with the world! 

We seem to be living in a terminally ill country, which makes me furious.  Our founders wrote such high ideals into the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and we are slipping farther and farther away from them.

Too many people are frightened witless by any change, but one rule of life is "Change, Grow or Die."

Comment by Sylvia on July 26, 2012 at 4:38pm

I'm so happy to be apart of this. I don't have anyone in my life that agrees with me. Everyone has turned against me and I refuse to ignore my intelligence. So I would rather be a independent thinker and move forward without these people in my life. I have so much going on right now. Thank you Ruth for welcoming me. My grandmothers name was Ruth!
