I’ve gotten a lot better at giving hugs, now I’m just waiting for other people to get comfortable enough to initiate them too. I don’t think anyone is freaked out by me giving them anymore, but getting one without being the one to initiate them all the time would feel especially nice. 6 years ago

I’m more receptive now when people want to hug me, but I’m not being pro-active about this. Obviously, unless I start initiating the hugging more, I’m not going to get more in return. Bad me, bad, bad me. I’ve got to quit being so shy about giving them. 7 years ago
I decided tonight that I was going to give my friends goodbye hugs. One is used to them, the other is a new friend and I figured if she’s going to get used to me as a hugger, better to start now than later on when she’s gotten used to me not hugging. Simple plan, right?
Maybe, but it fell thru nonetheless. Time came to leave, I was in a hurry and no one was specifically available to give a quick hug to without making the whole thing feel contrived. Ah well. 7 years ago
