Maybe it's just me but I feel like there are so many unhappy or even outright miserable people on here. Every day I see at least 5 questions of people saying how they're so depressive, how they've been struggling with anxiety issues for the past 10 years, how they're just generally bitter about life, how they think that they're ugly and wish they were prettier/more handsome, how they believe they might be autistic... etc.
It seems like either this place is an incredibly strong magnet for unhappy people or people with mental issues (no offense intended) or these people exaggerate their own state of mind and for example claim to have a depression when in reality, they've just been experiencing some sadness for the past few days.
If these GaGers are indeed genuine about their feelings, it seems a bit strange to me that they would share them so prominently on here. I'm not saying it's necessarily a bad thing but I've experienced a severe depression myself a few years back with psychological therapy and all that and I remember that I didn't want to talk about it with anyone except my therapist... let alone strangers on an online forum. I also wouldn't have expected these strangers to know a solution for a personal, emotional problem that even a trained psychologist was struggling with. I hope this doesn't come across as insensitive... I'm just kind of confused I guess.
What do you all think?
