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

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

Chris, sorry about your problem with some neighbors.  I can relate, as I'm a worrier also, and get very stressed-out when there's conflict.

I have a grade 10 education & even with reading a lot, I have difficulty with language skills & thinking of words to express myself with. I basically don't talk a lot either as I really don't like talking much, & tend to go blank among people. Computers are great as I can sort of mull things slowly or change things before posting. But when my sleep deprivation is at it's worst.....I'm a zombie.

Carl, your words reflect great wisdom and compassion. You don't wear rose colored glasses, you express yourself well and have such a nice way of saying things. 

Patricia, your wording is clear;  you always make good sense. Sadly, religion gives way to hypocrisy far too easily. A most destructive trait. Your realism refreshes me. 

Chris, old wounds hurt when they show up in a new situation. My guess is that these events are red flags waving, trying to tell you areas in which you need healing. Trust your feelings; they are real and provide valuable information. 

Mindy, Friday! Already! 2013 moves right along.

Option:
Do nothing;
Find the anonymous writers and movers and negotiate with them;
Thank those who appreciate your efforts;
Remove the plant and get full enjoyment out of it in your own place;
Take a vote of the building;
Retaliate.
Now the fun is deciding which option to choose and lay or sit in your favorite position and laugh.

Joan, thank you.  I'm glad you are my friend.

Chris, that's terrible about the plant!  Why would people object to it!???  People can be such ass-----!  That's a perfect example of why I don't have many people I am friends with anymore.  Thank goodness for you guys!

Happy Friday Friends <3

And sometimes small things begin to worry me disproportionately. I put a big plant in the hall of this building, and some neighbours liked the initiative and said so. Others began to post anonymous notes - it wasn't good enough - and began to pust the plant around. I found it in dark corners, where it will die, it was pushed against the wall, so the leaves broke, and I put it back every time. Now I don't know what to do: put the plant in the garbage, kill some neighbours, burn the building? I've been pestered quite a lot when I was younger, and this plant incident brings up a lot of memories I'd rather had forgotten...

Walkers are certainly worth checking into Joan. There are lots on ebay & amazon.

I find the religious only care about people if they believe in the same crap, or can convert them into it, otherwise they'll ostracize anyone who doesn't. That's what I found so hypocritical when I first began noticing that I'd hear one thing & see another....which didn't match up.

Having trouble with my wording tonight.......
