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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

Oh, did I just get some MONSTER news from my kid!  Two line items, in fact:

  1. She has just been accepted into Georgetown University's graduate Intelligence program (and that's "intelligence" as in Langley!).
  2. She has just been hired by the news division of WRC, the NBC affiliate in – get this – WASHINGTON, DC!!!

Yeah, she's doing both things and yeah, it'll be a challenge, but it is PRECISELY what SHE wants to do ... and I am freaking THRILLED outta my brains for her!

It takes some incredibly twisted thinking to lie for jesus, when the buybull says all liers are going to burn in hell.

Comment by Loren Miller on March 20, 2018 at 1:42pm

Those jerks are apparently willing to do and/or claim anything in order to advance their bullshit.  The problem is that their credibility is probably on a par with a certain occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania, NW.  To a degree, they're probably trying more to salve their own belief rather than try to get others to buy into their crap, and in that regard, it's little different from Christian apologetics.

Challenged, this supposed conversion will dry up like a puddle in the Sahara, and we can get back to business.
