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

Any Grey's Anatomy fans out there?  If so or if not, something happened in yesterday's episode which bears on us more than a little.

Great pic, Carl. Being shoved into "smart" clothes at that age should count as abuse :-D.

Very witty, Felaine. Those jokes definintely brought forth some smiles here.

What a cute picture of you, Flying Atheist. Thanks.

Good luck with the finger, Mindy. Soaking in as hot water as is comfortable has always helped me a lot for such ouchies.

Mindy, I hope your digit heals quickly.  How lucky you are to have your birthday on Easter this year.  Will you be baking a cake?  May your batter rise up as well.

Sk8, true (unsubscribe), but then I might miss something!  Same with the monthly newsletter. We'll see.

Great photo, Carl! Ah, memories. 

Comment by Ian Mason on April 18, 2014 at 3:22am

Spot on with that, Mindy. I hope your thumb problem clears up. It's a really useful digit for us humans.

Those were the days, lined up for the walk to church! Who wouldn't have a sour face in those circumstances?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 17, 2014 at 11:49pm

OK, folks.  With Easter coming up, and at the risk of serious personal embarrassment, I thought it would be apropos to post a photo of me from Easter morning back in the early 1970's.  Yes, that's me in all my glory with the too-short pants, white socks and making a sour face.
