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

Hey!  Not only is it easter and my birthday, it is also national pot-smoking day, and hitler's birthday. lol.

Thanks for the birthday wishes friends!

My daughter came home last night and told us she is officially dating the young man she has been going on dates with.  Now they are a couple.  It seems she has gotten over her feeling of being nervous about having someone "in her space."  She decided to give him a chance. :)

How did I miss Mindy's birthday? Happy Birthday--today (20th) I take it.

Yes, I concur with all the wonderful things directed to Joan, a most remarkable, and never boring, lady.

I'll join in the group hug! Happy birthday, Mindy! Thanks for the compliments,Joan - I hardly feel I deserve them - but you make me feel good! Happy spring days to all of you!

Felaine has a way with finding really cute pictures, and this one is just right for your celebration! A very happy birthday, tomorrow! 

Sorry about your thumb looking ugly, and yet you type well. I am surely glad that you can stay in touch as you heal. 

Gee, I don't know if I am uncomfortable with compliments. It seems I do a lot of writing about dreadful things and hope my optimism and pro-action shows through! While current events distress me, I know there are solutions that we can use to make this incredibly wonder-full planet healthy.
