I thought I should start a thread on this, because, honestly, I feel that ATS has really helped me progress socially. I ultimately came her both
because I have been addicted for years, but probably more so because I found it difficult to communicate in physical life.
However, when I started posting and making new threads I gathered more confidence in my ability to communicate both online and offline. And I would
like to thank everyone who has helped cause this to be.
However, much of the content on ATS has really gotten me down and depressed, such as constant news stories and graphic experiences. While I truly
believe that there is a lot of content on this site that the public should really be aware of, I have become somewhat harmfully addicted. Thank
goodness for BTS. It is said that for every negative comment, it takes about 4 or more positive comments to reverse the harmful effects. Obsession,
paranoia, and panic have also become side effects of my habits, so to speak.
Every action, however, is meant to be. In looking at this I see that ultimately good and many lessons will and have come.
Love hate, lol.
I would also like to acknowledge the great conduct that is both held and valued among the ATS community standards.
Anyways, that’s my story. So, how has ATS affected your life?
