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

Sorry to hear about your parents Patricia, but pleased to hear about all the other good peeps in your corner.  

I also don't want any "duty" visits from my family.  They are all firm Mormons, and Morons put a lot of emphasis on duty.  So, I get the idea that their visits are mostly that, and I would rather have none.

What a wonderful group of friends' messages to awaken me to a new day!. 

Tony, your poem set a perfect tone. 

Ruth that sweet photo prepares me for my little mouse family that lives in my garden and make crunching sounds as they break open bird seeds and scamper just out of my vision. They are part of my family and your sweet photo reminds me of that fact.

Ruth I love your animal picture - I think it's a mouse. I'm taking these pictures for my ever growing collection. What a beautiful rainbow Tony! Breathtaking.
Hugs to you all. Love you guys! I'll come back with a cute picture for you.

Good morning,all. Beautiful day.

Thanks for the group hug Joan.  I like that pix, especially because Eeyore is happy in the middle of it.  I relate quite a bit to Eeyore.

Congress is a very good name for a large group of baboons.
