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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

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

Brent, good to see you back. I remember someone giving you a hard time a while ago about posting the details of your friends radio show. You made those posts before each broadcast. I never, ever viewed that as spam and I didn't understand why that person got all bent out of shape about it. It kinda came out of nowhere. I'm sorry it was enough to keep you away from here.
Anyway, I'm sorry you've had a rough time lately dealing with family health issues, but it's great to have you back with the herd.

As promised, a few pics: Jerusalem High Street and shops, 2,000 years ago. Potholes caused by a Roman demolition squad pushing bits of temple off the hilltop in the year 70.

Nice to have you back, Brent and to hear that you're bearing up under the strain. It sounds like life hasn't been easy of late.

That's a good weights and measures system, Joan.

A family should ideally help you to cope with the ups and downs of life, a secure base to help you survive the vagaries of your journey but it sounds like many need help just to survive their families. Very sad.

It is nice to learn of your life has improved through the years and you are much better. I expect you will be scooting around town all in purple. A very sweet image.

Thank you Arp.

I didn't fit in school or the neighborhood, & didn't fit in church either as dear ol' dad didn't get baptized until I was 16, & I finally told mother I was done with church at 17.

After I met my husband & his family, a new world opened for me. I am much happier, although it's difficult sometimes, but life now is sooooooo much better!!!! I like my home, my town, my surroundings, & those I choose to spend my time with.

Comment by Arp on April 7, 2014 at 11:27pm

Patricia, I'm very saddened to know what you experienced as a child. No child deserves that. May you have all the happiness now!

Comment by Patricia on April 7, 2014 at 11:05pm

Thanks Joan. As I've said before, I am not naturally a humorous person, so I have to work at it. It likely explains too, why I'm not particularly a kid person & am rather a loner. Being the only moron family in the neighborhood  set me apart in school right away.

I think we all pretty much agree there, Arp. 

Comment by Arp on April 7, 2014 at 10:46pm

Hello comrades! Its nice to know many of you including Joan agree with my point of view.
