Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 836

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.

Ky, Congrats on your math-whiz g-daughter.  And, if you can't brag here, where can you brag?

Comment by k.h. ky on May 10, 2014 at 10:00am

Bear with me I've gotta brag..My third grade g-daughter took first place in the county wide math competition.  She out scored almost  two hundred other third graders to do it.

Way to go baby girl!!!!!!!!

Patricia, I like the "SIT" pic.

And Joan, I'm with you.  I might like a dog if I could get a bird to train it for me.  And are those cute things otters?

Sorry for the bad day you peeps have had.

Ruth, sorry for your frustration with Blue Shield.  They sound like a horrible company.  Their actions or inactions would make me very angry and depressed.

Thanks for all the great pics (and unusual music). Just the stuff to come home to after a night's work. Warmth and good cheer :-)

Hugs to each one having stress in our lives. A virtual cuddle, a soothing expression of care, and an experience of gratitude for friendship across the miles can ease the feelings.

Looking at Earth through the lens of Cassini doesn't relieve the pain and frustration of living; it makes it more important that feelings of strength, power, competence and agency replace helplessness, anger, fear and hopelessness.  

Chaos of modern life can be challenged with a determination to experience beauty, comfort and serenity, especially as we express our deepest frustration at incompetence.

A good song, FA, thanks! No migraine, so I got up early and will do a lot of work today. Have a nice weekend, everybody!

I hope everyone has a good weekend and that next week will be better than the last.
