I have been on this site a few months now and have enjoyed the companionship and knowledge gained. Something not so nice happened to me today. I have always tried to be supportive and nice to everyone I have come in contact with and for the most part everyone on this site has reciprocated in the same manner. However today, I received an email from a member saying that there were a couple members in need of a hug today. So, trying again to be kind to others I hugged them and told them to take care and God Bless as I usually do. For the hug I gave one of the members I received a NO Thanks. Now, I don't want to date this person or even get to know him I merely hugged him because I was told he was really in need of one. It really kind of hurt to have my kindness thrown back at me. I don't want anything in return. I don't know that I will hug anyone again. It's that old fear of rejection. I never thought I would get kicked in the teeth by someone on this website who went through or who was going through the same thing that I am. So in advance, hugs to all of you. I won't be giving anymore hugs to anyone individually.
