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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Felaine, no reason to apologize.  You're not being selfish at all, just a very caring and loving guardian to another living being who is an important part of your life.  I understand your worries.  Hairy Jerry is lucky to be with you when he needs special care.  

Melinda, don't get too out of hand with your new-found freedom.  We don't want to read about you in the Police Blotter.  And you better stay out of the Gourmet food aisle. 

Tony.......what can I say?  Puppies!!!!!!  What a cute pic.

hey Flying Atheist I have seen that commercial and I think it really cute and funny. Make me laugh every time. Thanks for posting it.

Tony those puppies are so adorable!

Joan - thanks for the Mantis Shrimp.

Shhhh! Please be very, very, quiet. We're exhausted!

Comment by Plinius on March 21, 2013 at 3:36am

Felaine, our cats ARE our family, so you've got a family problem and I hope for a good outcome! Xtians are always shocked and angry when I talk like this and say "It's only an animal." What do they mean by ONLY? With a little understanding of evolution we know better than that.

So all the best for Hairy Jerry - and I have not forgotten Ian's mothers; all the best for them too!

I feel stupid for whining about my cat's condition...and selfish...when some of you are undergoing much worse medical and family problems. (I'm also terrified of the cost; I don't get my Social InSecurity deposit till next week...isn't that tacky?)

I apologize.

Felaine

PS to TFA...I want a pair of those, too!  Adorabubble!

Have any of you cat lovers seen this commercial?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 20, 2013 at 9:26pm
TFA, Oh yes! "a new salad dressing. Franch: a combination of French and Ranch." I missed the opportunity to claim a new recipe.
Propaganda has such a sinister way of kidnapping minds and distorting reality. That is why delusional thinking needs challenging!
