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.

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

Carl, this display is just about as ugly as one can imagine. Too bad the effort wasn't directed at some other activity, like contributing to the community dinners held for homeless folks, or reading to children in the child's cancer ward, or volunteering a few hours to Meal on Wheels, or countless other things that bring joy into the hearts and minds of depressed, hopeless people.

Flying Atheist, that Christmas internment camp is cre-e-epy.

Thanks for the belly laugh, Bertold! The pustule that detached and went to college --- <eye roll>.

I love those things you gave Berthold.

Comment by Loren Miller on December 12, 2016 at 8:58pm

Berthold, I have to say, you're two-for-two there!

Daniel, glad to see the progress in your kitchen!

Carl, if it weren't for the fence, the Santas and snowmen would simply look like they're assembled and ready to go to work.

And on the subject of "interesting" menorahs, this year Chanukah begins on the evening of December 24, which is also the date of another celebration...

Someone's crazy about xmas decorations!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 12, 2016 at 10:38am

That's a lot of work, Daniel.  But it's good you are able to do this on your own without having to hire someone else.  I commend you for your abilities.  I have no skills in that area.
