Honestly I don't really let bad or negative people get to me because I know that what they say or do is a reflection of them and not me. I just try really hard to gain wisdom and understanding of life so that I can become a more loving, kind and thoughtful person to me and everyone else. I sometimes think I spend too much time on here and I need to leave for awhile. I need to become more quiet and just more aware of my surroundings. I like GAG because I can dump my thoughts but I think I need to just talk to myself more.
There's lots of toxicity here, but sometimes it's like a hole that sucks you in. It prevents you from living life. If life is going well, and you're actively engaging with it, then Gag will feel good. If not, then, well. All these things are a case of what one dwells on.
I thought there was a bit of a dark phase in last while but I thought it was getting better. Over a couple of accounts I have been here about 16 months and there has been about 5/6 shifts in direction, some good, some bad - Best thing is take a step back and choose where you want to join in, the areas most positive to you.
Mel, I can't say I blame you. For me at this point, it's mostly about writing Takes. A lot of people here are either inexperienced in sex and life, or very experienced and just gross. If you want to leave, it's okay. I'll give you my email.
You'll probably consider this comment to be "toxic" and "unfriendly" as well, but I get the feeling you're the sort of person who just wants to hear he thoughts and feelings repeated back to her in an echo chamber. If you can't handle disagreement, yes, I would suggest you leave.
I'd rather you stay because I'm curious about the opinions of people different than myself, but I will not coddle you.
It's the internet, everything gets ruined sometime.
You aren't doing this for attention right? But It has gotten worse. I've just learned to ignore it. I hardly answer any questions anymore. If you can't handle it then leave but don't let a bunch of idiots ruin it for you.
