Haha! Yours are so much funnier than the actual meaning I am tempted to not tell you! Haha! I am so entertained!
It actually stands for "reevaluation counseling" It is a theory on counseling, on life, on being a human. The basic, very oversimplified theory, is that humans are emotional creatures that get taught from an early age not to let our emotions out. Men get this even worse than women. The idea is that we then come up with unhealthy channels for those emotions- such as suppressing them, lashing out in anger due to them, etc. We cannot tease out our genuine reactions to things from our old hurts because we are a jumbled mess. RC practice involves 2 people exchanging "sessions" where they can emote (cry, scream, laugh, tantrum, whatever) safely without judgment with attention from another person. The idea is that you do not need a therapist because you have the wisdom in you if you just had the freedom to get to it.
There is more to it than that but that is the basics. I have been in it for awhile now. It is what helped me actually be able to admit to another human being that I am in a sexless marriage. It has helped me own my own part in this- why in the world did I marry this person, how have I stayed in an SM for so long, etc.
If there were any RCers here it would be great to exchange sessions but I am out of luck.
Ha ha RC Cola! I love that stuff. Haven't had it in ages. I grew up in the South. Used to drink that and SunDrop - another regional soft drink. I'd crawl over broken glass for a SunDrop and a chicken biscuit.

northstarmom I have been aware of RC for 20 years and always wary of it. I have been in it now for 2 years. I am well aware of the cult like aspects and I am not at risk of being sucked into them. Thanks, though, for the concern. Like anything, you have to just take what works, leave the rest and keep your eyes wide open.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
worksforme2: Hey baza,...I know it's hot and dry down under. N.C. is having record rainfall. I would gladly trade some rain for some sunshine....

petrushka: I was gobsmacked when I heard. This is just not us. In all of 2017 we had 37 murders in the country ..... I think the echo chambers of "social media" have a lot to answer for.

misssunnybunny: petrushka, I thought I read the headline wrong (this stuff happens here, not in NZ). It is frightening the hate that is being spread; it makes my heart hurt.

saarinista: All of us, IMHO, should try to be civil and kind as much as possible in person and online. I actively Tweet (civilly) on political matters and am horrified by the rancor & trolling on both sides of the spectrum, which only inflames unstable people.
