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

It does look like a bear Ian! lol  Can you imagine cleaning up after that dog?!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 15, 2013 at 8:09am

How nice to be among realistic and positive people :-)

That dog could earn a fortune as a stand-in for a dancing bear.

Thanks for the Mental Health Awareness pic, Napoleon! I understand more and more of anxiety disorder now that I've lived all these years with someone who suffers from it. It's often a heavy struggle to lead a life that looks ordinary and even boring to some people - but we know better than that - and I'm happy to be reminded that we're not alone.

Felaine, I love the baby-talk story!  GREAT pictures Tony! Joan, as usual, you express your wonderful thoughts wonderfully! :) Steph, super-lazy lol cat is funny.  Both of my kids had good first days of college.  Today is super-packed with classes for both of them.  I miss my daughter, but she is sounding happy. Hugs to everyone~ Melinda

Ian that's great that you exercise too.  I NEED to, but I don't.  You DO have friends right here.  I know what you mean though.  I have friends that I see occasionally, but I really think it's hard to have real friendships with non-Atheists.  I'm sure people do, it's just that that fact is always THERE.  I used to be REALLY sociable.  Now I prefer staying home most of the time. Take care.~ Melinda
