I read somewhere that hugs are kinda powerful, like if someone hugs you when you're down and someone comes and give you a big hug you suddenly start to feel ok and vice versa.
That has being my experience.I hug all my friends and somehow we are so close now. I remember once i was so depressed and was tring to isolate, a friend of mine call me and asked me if i could go to her house to hang out and when i got there at first i was trying to stay away from all my friends, but then my friend gave me this huge hug that all the walls i have build went down and i opened up about what the hell was bothering me and i felt good, when i was saying my good byes i hug them all and felt so much better because i felt love and they feel the same way everytime they get hugs.
And for you all i give you a BEAR HUG! love!
