Almost Always

I need a hug almost always.  To cheer me up, calm me down, to say hello and good-bye...I want hugs more than I get them.  I hug my kids, my cats and my boyfriend a lot, but there are people that I see everyday and talk to and have NEVER hugged, nor will I ever probably--although, I'd like to.  I mean, it would be no big deal to hug them.  It would just be like, "Hey, we're on the same team."  But I've tried this before with people that I have more of a professional relationship with...and they were mega weirded out. But, I don't think that I'm the only one who would feel better if it were the social norm to be open and generous with hugs......it's the same old question that I ask myself....why is there such a divide between people's desires and their behavior?  Anyway, it's V-Day. Lots of love to everyone.

I agree there is nothing better than a good hug. No the bone crushing type mind you .... just the great comfortable feeling of security you feel when you get a hug from someone who really means it. I also hug all my animals as well as all my friends. So I send a virtual hug to you all. Cottonfields, sorry to hear you lost your husband recently ... I send you a very special, virtual hug.

There is NOTHING wrong in needing a hug every day! I am like that too. I lost my husband 6 months ago and I SO miss the daily hugs we exchanged. So here I am sending you a virtual hug!
