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.

Isn't faith like wanting wishing hoping to be or become true? Faith sounds like a stupid word.

About respect: A long time ago (30 or 40 years) I was watching some kind of serious talk show, a panel discussion, and somebody said (about someone else's religion), "Well, I don't agree with him, but I have to respect him for it." He meant for having faith.  And I thought, "WHY?"

Oh, and I can respect someone who has enOugh respect for themselves and others to think logically and not practice/preach intolerance and hate...

Lmao @ sk8eycat "sorry. But in not a very nice person."
Comment by alexa penzner on September 15, 2011 at 10:50pm
sk8eycat   -  i guess that's what i mean by respecting the person not the religion.  the people who aren't good people and expect you to follow them and not deviate are not nice people. you are a nice person (not to overuse the word). look how you care about your sister. (by the way, my experience with the jw'ers is totally different, (except for one person dumb person). but maybe that's cause they were Italian, too.  italians are a whole other story :]
