As I read the discussion started by dolphinlady on hurt feelings, a reoccurring question came to mind about hurt feelings and "friends" on websites. The sentiment was submitted repeatedly that DC is truly supportive; so I ask each one of you to think and be honest. Do we acknowledge everyone on our friends list with a hello or a thank you for a hug or gift that we give or receive? Did we just accumulate friends for the sake of a "badge" or do we really care about all of our DC friends and not just one or two that we interact with? Sometimes it's the quiet ones that are suffering or could use a hello or hug. Sometimes we have to go beyond the obvious and acknowledge the small flower in the corner.
Let's be honest, shall we? when was the last time you went through your list of friends and sent a note or hug to say "Hi" to a person you do not speak to everyday?
Everyone here needs a hug, everyone here needs to know they are not alone regardless of their points or badges or lack of. Just a thought.
