Welcome to the Fourth Installment of the Hugging Thread. For the first time, we had the choice of closing our thread. We felt we needed a new start. The mission of this thread is to help people. I have seen this thread do wonders for people and help people get back on their feet. We all need advice and support sometimes. Sometimes we just need a hug or kind words. Whatever the case, we are here to help you. So join us in this new beginning and give a hug or two.

However there are Some Rules:
1.No Spam- I can’t stress this enough. We are here to help people. The first 2 threads failed due this. We can’t have spam. It only hinders the thread and people get over looked.
2. Remember give helpful advice. Don’t make jokes about the person problems. People come here for comfort and support. I remember when I first started giving advice here I could be a little rough on the person. I learned in time to give proper advice with words of comfort. A lot of people aren’t in good state of mind when they come here. So remember to be kind, because everyone is fighting a hard battle.
3. Keep open mind to others advice. Don’t under mind others advice, just because you don’t agree doesn’t mean you’re right. There are many opinions out there. The main purpose is to help the person, it’s not to fight with other posters.
4.Don’t forget the hugs.

*post without any actual advice olololo*

Seriously though, I'm a little surprised that there's a new thread, and I just want to be on the first page.

Do you still want to cop a feel? I occasionally think of posting in this thread and then realise I'm a heartless bastard.

The point of the thread is not just give random hugs. It meant to help people. Don't spam the thread. I will report it.
Edit: Wizard's just never edited it back. Seriously this is a serious thread guys.

What about chestbumps? Are they all good? Cos hugs are gay

I was wondering this as well - and if not, would making a separate chest-bumping/bro-fisting thread be appropriate?

Calm down love, I think someone needs a hug.
There's no problems yet anyway, we're just lightening the mood so far

I was just kidding. It's the first page, of course I'm not going to do this once the thread gets going.

That would just be a permanent Bro Night thread.

Hugging thread 3 is getting closed as soon as Element closes it. He told me make the thread and send him both links.

I just asked in the Ask the Mods thread, and he said not to, but he has plans for future Bro Nights.

I love hugs. But I've only had a few in my entire life that weren't from family.

My future is going to suck

No bro. Your future will be fine, and if in ten years you are unhappy with your life, then you can come to New Zealand and you can live with me and I'll show you how to be happy.

Best of luck guys. Feel like I owe you an explanation for all the diasappearing "I'm coming back to help now!" lolneverseenagain that I did in HT3. Basically, what goes on in this thread is a small piece of what I do for a living now. After going to work at 8:30 and spending all day hooking people up with low-income resources, teaching them relaxation techniques, helping them to understand their mental illnes, talking some through legitimate crises, etc, I don't come home at 5:00 looking to do it some more. I'm tired and I just want to go shoot shit or yell at men for not putting the rubber disc behind the other men better. I can't risk the burnout and I think that's what kept me from clicking on this thread in my control panel and eventually unsubscribing.

So best of luck to you, keep going strong, and for anyone who feels like it can't get better, I offer the truest cliches I've ever heard: First, every long journey begins with a single step. Second, write your own life story.

The intent of this thread is not to propogate your stupidity. You have the rest of the pit to be an idiot in. Please don't do it here.

EDIT: ^No worries bro. I think I might be a Hugbro in this thread.

vBro I love you as well. I <3 all of The Pit

I had like 700 posts in the last thread. I'm not as big of a dick as I seem (although I do have a big dick).

Sorry for my posting dropping off as much as it did. Still trying to deal with my situation, doing a lot better than before though. You guys helped me weather the hardest times of my life by a huge margin, thank you.

I always thought you were just pretending to be a dick. I bet you're like a Canadian Dr. Cox in real life.

You probably don't remember me, but two years ago, in the last thread, the advice and support you and Le_Bunny gave me over the course of about 6 months quite literally saved my life. I highly doubt I would be a functional human being, or alive for that matter, had you not been there to tell me that everything would be okay. I don't think I've ever properly thanked you for that. So thank you.

To everyone else: I've always felt guilty about using the HT as an emotional crutch for the better part of a year without really giving back to the community. I'm now at a point in my life that I can properly do that, and I intend to try my best to post in this incarnation of the HT, rather than just lurking, like I did the last one.

for all.

It's going to be okay. I believe in you and you're going to do well on your exams if you study and apply yourself.

lol. I'm not worried about exams at all. If I don't get into Uni I'm gonna get a secure job which I already wanted, and if I do I'll get a lower paying job which I want a little bit more.

Life is good when it's win/win.

Year 12, I have 6 exams and I have done one so far (English, possibly one of the easier ones).

I have three consecutive exams in three days and they're hard ones (physics, bio, math)

And now I'm here in the Pit
