Do you find yourself frustrated when you are in groups of people where you are not challenged?
I am in groups of people sometimes where I seem to be one of the higher functioning people....like some mental health group offered for growth...such as CBT...Often times in these groups I jump in and I become like one of the professionals, they says it's okay, and people like my input. But sometimes I feel that my "advice" might "insult" the group leader's intelligence. Often times others members are so negative and depressing, I feel worse coming out than when I came in.
Ditto. I feel the same way in most of my group therapy. I recently stopped going to my group because of this very reason. I try to keep in mind that everyone struggles.. and grows.. at their own pace in their own way. It doesn't make my therapy any more satisfying though.
The job of a group leader is to stay objective, so if they're insulted by your input, that's on them and not you. It is also the group leader's job to set limits and boundaries, which they should and probably would do if they felt you were intruding.
My final thought is that you should be proud of yourself, in a way. Being bored or under-stimulated in a group shows how well you're doing. Sometimes it's good to know when to walk away for your own sake. If you feel worse coming out than when you went in, it may be time to switch to another group.

"Good" and "evil" are concepts we apply to human behavior. When are these terms accurate, and when are they labels of convenience we apply out of laziness or prejudice?

I have a lot of hubs, and choosing which ones to place on the carousel is difficult, especially since it is in alphabetical order. Is there any way to include choices like groups or topics like the stats page has, so that it is easier to find the hubs once I decide what I want to feature?...

Do you participate in local writer's groups?I've been looking into local writer's groups and I haven't taken the plunge yet. Do you participate in local writer's groups? And if you do, do you find them helpful with constructive feedback and encouragement?
