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.

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

Booklover and Patricia I really like your Atheism posts - I agree.

I'm saving the pictures and reading up on how everything is going on with all of you. I did not watch the Superbowl - I am just not interested in that. But I am wondering if there were any commercials that stood out. I think there's a webpage that goes over the Superbowl commercials.

Joan, it's funny, the things my daughter says I do to her that bug her, are the same things my mom does to me that bug me... LOL.  An example is I can't let my daughter off the phone, I always have one more thing to say... and I complain when my mom does that to me!  Oh well!  If that's the worst thing... :)

Ian, I hope things smooth out soon. That kind of stress feels awful! I am thinking about you, trusting that you have done all you can to solve those organizational and systemic problems, not of your making. I know you have everything you need to weather the storms and find solutions that work.

Good news of your daughter's safe return. Isn't it fun, when they grow up and become great friends. There is always the parent child thing ... but there is so much more.

Melinda, Oh yes! that is what life is like! And it is great! Funny thing, when they grow up, I begin to hear my voice coming back at me.
