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

"from ancient grudge new mutiny breaks forth". I wish I knew how to get rid of old resentments. I can hold on to them longer than the Mafia!

Violence in the home is a horrible thing. Here in Denmark there's been some attention recently to the problem of women who beat. It seems to be a more common occurence among the younger generation. That said, the "traditional" form is still dominant.

The tazered cat is great :D Thanks.

One Billion Rising

"In her video, Ensler said she wants to make stopping violence against women the center of the global agenda, and she hopes everyone takes a pledge on February 14, regarding what they are going to personally do to end this violence."

And now something to smile about! :)

I always had a loving mom and 2 sets of grandparents (one that lived in our city and I spent lots of wonderful time with), they were actually my real 'fathers' parents.  I still am angry about growing up with an asshole of a stepdad, but I wouldn't hurt my mom's feelings by telling her that now.  She was just doing the best she could at the time.  I had a pretty good childhood, but I know my 'dad' abandoning us to party his life away affected me in a terrible way.  I clung to my high school boyfriend for security, and we got married too young, but it turned out well.  We've been married 25 years, and he is a really good husband and father.  I wouldn't change a thing, because then I wouldn't have the kids I have now.  My mom says that too about marrying my 'father.'  So, life goes on... :)
