Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

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.

Mindy, so very sorry to learn of your daughter's challenges. You are a great mom and provide the safety she needs, and we are here to provide you emotional support, even if we can only give virtual hugs and lots of encouragement. Be sure to take good care of yourself. You are the strong dock she needs as she figures out life' storms. The depression worries me, as I know it does you. With clinical depression, she may need Rx. And of course you already know that.

Poor Mindy's daughter! I'm glad she has got a good family to back her. Wish her well!

Oh, man, Mindy.  Talk about being shat upon all at once.  I feel horrible just thinking about your daughter and what she's going through.  Like Sk8eycat said, I'm sorry I can't do more, but please let her know that this total stranger from an internet site wishes her well.  I know she's in good hands with you around.

Sorry to hear about your daughter Mindy. I hope things work out for her in the future. We are thinking about her and wish her the best. Ruth I love that cat picture.

Felaine, hugs from friends are plenty! You're so sweet. Hugs back to you. I'm glad you and your Aunt had each other in life. Both wonderful people.

Booklover: I'm thinking a lot of hugs to you and your daughter....I'm sorry  that I can't do more.

My poor daughter! She has been seriously depressed, feeling nauseous (Gastro problems like mine), the guy she was starting to date dumped her, and tonight she lost her job!!!!! They had to let people go because business isn't good. She had had plans to move out with 2 friends on Dec 1st. I know some people have much worse problems. She knows it too, but she's still my baby even if she's 21, and I can't stand to see her hurting. Sometimes life just sucks. Too bad it all happened to her in one week! Thanks for listening Friends. <3

Do you remember the old observation about how many people will actually touch a wall or something else in a public place that has a "Wet Paint" sign on it?  Amazing.

I never liked Art Linkletter much, but the title of one of his programs was spot-on: People Are Funny.

Oh, BTW, my sister bought a gadget called a "Telemarketer Repellant." It has a choice of 25 recorded rude remarks...just hold it up to the phone, and push a button.  Some of the recordings are VERY rude!  Hee-heeeeee!  Of course it's useless for robot-calls.

Comment by Patricia on November 14, 2013 at 2:44pm

A lot more can be accomplished by watching paint dry! At least there's chance of the paint actually drying!!!

Ruth...Love that "recording cat," and the ones you posted in "Ailurophiles" about the "brown bath beads."  Eww.  Tee-hee.

"Recording cat" reminds me of "Your prayer is very important to us..." but I can't remember the rest of it.  I'm having Senior Moments more and more often lately, and they scare me.  I did remember a line in one of Carl Sagan's books; he was paraphrasing somebody else about people praying for a particular need..."Why pray at all?  If God knows everything, then he already knows about the problem, and how to fix it."

That's my thought for today.

I think.
