My friend S is going through a very difficult time right now. S, I just want you to know that I would be there if I could and you're always in my thoughts and prayers. Your not alone! Love you.

This hug is for you and...anyone else who needs one.

Some people like to get hugs, it makes them feel loved or protected or at least cared about. Others don't, it infringes on their personal space or they don't like the physical contact.

How about you? Do you like hugs and why?

I have a lot of trouble with hugs. I want to like them, but they tend to make me tense instead of comforting me. I suppose it's because my parents didn't show their affection by hugging me, so I just never got used to them. (I'm not saying that to criticize my parents -- it's just the way they were)

Hugs are great. They help, they mend, they love, they comfort, they support, they are anything you need them to be. Big hugs are the best!!

I am a very physical person. I will hug people I haven't seen in years. Sometimes they are taken aback, but usually they respond with joy to be so well received.

It depends on the situation, who is hugging me, and how sincere they are. If I am struggling to maintain my composure, I don't want to be touched.
