    What Hugs Mean To Me.

    HUGS I think it’s just me, but I find it really hard to just give a hug to say hello or good bye. It just seems just so …… fake. Hugs to me should mean something. There should be intention behind the hug. There should be feeling and not just with the body, but with the mind...

    Hug For Me To.

    I does seem that in the worst of times that a hug helps me so much. I'm always smiling and laughing on the out side but not on the inside. I'm looking for people that may understand what i'm talking about. I think that as time goes on I will be able to share more.
