Not the nicest thing to say, but it's done more bad than good to myself. I've helped people with relationship problems here, but more often, I find that I'm beginning to become a worse person because of the negativity, the bad influences and the people with immature thinking, behavior and mentality here. Not to mention, many users' judgement here are very poor and they give very rude answers. Thus, these bring out the worse in me.
So on the flip side, what has gag done to you?

This site has renewed my faith that there are good people in this world.
Yes, there will be pain. But through pain, you learn so much about yourself and others. You obviously care deeply about people, especially those in pain. Be careful not to fall into feeling negative in the face of it. That is the trap of being a healer.
Yes, there will be people who are still growing, and not just waist-wise. ;p There are people of varying maturity all over the world. The site is an open forum for people to converse in a relatively safe environment. Education and understanding can only be found through healthy conflict.
Yes, some answers and judgement are poor or rude, but if you take them in context, they may not be either. Some people are simply making jokes, being sarcastic or pointing out the irony of life. It may hurt, especially when quite brash, but sometimes a person simply wants attention. And, some people simply don't think before speaking, or in this case, typing.
Personally, with all of the pain I've gone through in the past year, this site has been extremely helpful for me. I get to help people understand that they're not alone with their feelings. Yes, what happens to them may not be fair, but would you rather help the world than be made negative by it? People are not confident. People feel cornered. People feel separated. People feel betrayed and have lost faith in good.
The world is one the verge of something great. And I believe that technology allowing us to truly connect is one of them. Just think about how much pain there was before the Internet, texting and Facebook. Now, the pain is more vocal, global and consumed. There is a danger in technology, yes, but there will be those on either side of the debate over it. Don't let a few bad people ruin it for everyone, most of all, you.
Wouldn't you think good would be there to balance out the evil? Evil can never be conquered, but it can be balanced by good. Without pain, we don't truly learn, and you're learning
You'll find the right balance again. I'm sure of it. Much peace and understanding for you and all!2
