Scoobies Together

I have a plan

I think everybody has hurt feelings.  I think feeling hurt sucks.  I think when we feel hurt, we sometimes hurt each other even when that's the last thing we want to do.  And then it keeps on cycling back.  Everybody is hurt even more, it sucks, we lash out, and the Demon of Cyclical Pain is Born.

You know how to slay the demon?


Yes. This is my plan. If in expressing my own hurt, I've hurt you, may I hug you? I'm sorry. I am sorry. The last thing I want to do is hurt anyone. We're so much better than this, everybody. We're so much bigger than this. We're so much stronger than this. We can all be good to each other. Let's all be good to each other.

So this is my plan. I want to start a meme. If you want to join in (and I hope you do), you can just post *hugs* in text or as a GIF on your journal.  You can even take some of my hugs GIFs and post them.  (Hotlink from my account for this purpose if you need to. I got a paid account for this month and I can't think of a better way to use it. Just for this meme, please.)

Courtesy Suggestion: if we're all going to post GIFs, let's put them behind an LJ cut so that we don't kill the load time for our flists, okay? 

So go ahead and take my hugs and spread the love. If this is too touchy feely gross and hokey, well... I think we need it right now. And we've all suffered through hugs before that we initially didn't want, but sometimes they made us feel better, maybe? I think it's worth a try.

I love my flist. I love everybody on my flist. You are not imaginary to me, you're real and I care. I'm sorry that we're hurting.
