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.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

A good family is a great thing. A bad family can be a nightmare.

My Dad was married twice so I've got 2 "Mums", both very jealous and posessive, so there's been some conflicts. Peace seems now to have settled over the situation but that's probably because they both know that the end is in sight, which is a sobering thought for them.

Patricia, please remember that your own well-being comes first. Do whatever moderates your mood and blood-pressure and to Hell with anything/anyone else.

Patricia, I am so very sorry that there isn't a warm relationship; life is too precious to have to put up with people who judge or don't accept one. So! Make each day extra special for yourself! Make your happiness and joy and enthusiasm depend on you, you are too precious to let another stand in the way of your standing proud, strong, happy, and full of vinegar.

Best to know where the border is, Patricia, and you know - but even so it's a rotten situation.

Felaine, my dentist told me once that injections in an inflamed area don't work, because the medicine cannot spread in swollen tissue. That might answer your question.

Oh dear, 50 is way too young. I wonder if he had any warning signs? Melinda, let's remember to make every moment full of joy ... even as there is so much going crazy around us. I wonder what his stress level was ?

Grinning Cat, How'd you get the cat to sit for that photo? Funny!

Joan, I forgot toadd that Jessi Arrington is a DELIGHT!  thank you for posting that link. I wish I had her figure and hairstyle, but neither is possible at my age.

(I'm still wearing some clothes that I bought at an outlet store in McMinville, Oregon almost 10 years ago.  Shoes, pull-on pants, tops, sweats, and a Chanel knock-off handbag...total for everything $75.)
