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.

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

Mindy, thank you. I hate dumping all my daymares on everyone here.  I try to keep my sense of humor alive, and very much enjoy the funny pics everyone posts in here...especially all the silly cats. It helps a lot.

Cats can be SO funny, and they resent our laughter so much. The black Devil cat we had 30+ years ago used to play and play and play till he had to pant like a dog, and if anyone laughed at him, he would go into a corner, turn his back and start washing his face.  It was like, "I don't know what you alll are laughing at; it certainly wasn't anything I did!"  This usually was after he'd been batting an ice cube all over the kitchen floor.  He loved that game.

He also used to love to sit beside my dad in the recliner to watch the news, or a football game.  After Dad died, The Devil still got into the chair when it was time to turn on the TV....and waited, and waited.  I would sit beside him, but I guess I didn't smell right (Devil was blind by then.)

Pumpkin likes to snuggle up to my shoulder when I'm reading in bed...he also rubs his chin on the books I have stacked beside me.  His favorite (right now) is Losing Faith in  Faith by Dan Barker.  ;>)

I also like and saved the ice cat from Steph and the meatball shaped planets by Mindy.  I've saved a lot of images, but sorry I haven't had time to respond to much.

Patricia love the rat nap.

Felaine sorry to hear about your social security and rising cost of living expenses. Wish there was something I could do to help.

Congrats on your daughter's job Booklover.

The rat nap is cute Patricia.

I'm sorry you have to worry about that Felaine! I understand why you would be really stressed over that! I was always very physically strong as well. I swear after giving birth, my body fell apart. Gallstones, major panic-attacks, terrible Acid-reflux, the list goes on and on. At 46 I don't feel that I could work full-time. Luckily I don't have to. I wouldn't trade having my kids for anything, but it did make me physically and now mentally (anxiety) weaker.
My daughter started her job today, and goes Thurs. to talk to another counselor re: finishing her degree. Here's hoping!!!!

I like changing things because I get bored very easily......& it's fun to find pictures to add to my collection.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 9, 2013 at 8:29pm

Geez, it seems like many people here are sporting new profile pictures.  I may have to jump on that bandwagon and get up to date.

Ruth, I have that “why did I come into this room?” experience about 7 times a week!
About 4 times in the last 20 years I've had an experience where I don't recognize the room I'm in, even though I've been there many times. It's a little scary, but I just turn around and go back out, and I remember. I don't get too upset with it. My other memory problems don't bother me at all. I just laugh at them.
I stress at many things, but memory isn't one of them.
