Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 10 hours ago

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.

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts. Yes, I have people I can rely on for support. Will also be coming here to let off steam and get cheered up. There's nothing like a LOLcat or dog for putting a smile back into life.

Ian, I am very sorry to learn of your mother's condition and know this is a hard time for you. Thankfully, you have worked with old people and know her mind is deteriorating and your job is to remain stable and compassionate with her. Do you have a good support system? Take really good care of yourself so that you can provide the support she will need.

You're a lovely bunch of people, thanks for all your kind words! (Sniffing softly - am I catching a cold?) Almost 7 AM here, and off to work.

Hey Tony I got home just a while ago myself. Just exhausted today. So I'll be back here tomorrow to catch up.
Nice to hear from all of you!
Hope you had a good Monday.

Hey everyone. Just getting home from work. Boy, did the extremely malodorous fecal matter impact heavily upon the rotating blades of the air circulating machine today. One of the busiest we've ever had. Just trying to catch up now, over 187 messages in my in box. Well, I'll talk with you guys later. Have a good one.
