Touching Lives

BZPower Staff Experiences Life Love
After listening to the BZPowercast yesterday it got me to thinking about how much BZPower has shaped my own life. I've met some of my best friends on BZPower. That started all from our love of video games. Then I ended up becoming staff. And I made even more friends.

Those connections I made with people are some of the greatest things in the world. The people around us do help to shape who we are and how we interact with others. They gave me help when I needed it and courage to move on so many times.

I've fallen so far before, but I've had great friends who were there to support me. These connections and life experiences made me stronger and eventually helped me to accept myself for who I am. As a part of that acceptance I started coming out to people. Most people were really supportive. A few weren't but not many. And I was okay with that, because I had accepted a huge fact about my life.

To this day, even if it caused a bit of controversy, I'd do it all over again. Now, there is a point to all of this. The connections I made on BZPower and having become staff put me into an interesting position for awhile.

I had members at that time and a bit after send me PMs and IMs, many of whom didn't accept themselves yet. So, I talked to them and helped them. I told them that thinks were okay. I comforted people I didn't even know, but I knew how they were feeling.

Sometimes people need help, and sometimes there isn't anyone to talk to about those problems. At the time I didn't know it, but I became someone people could talk to in private. Someone who could help on a website that at the time didn't have anyone.

As we've all grown up with BZPower, so have our views. So many members started on the website at a young age, as they grew they faced problems that weren't easy to talk about. I did not mind at all being someone to talk to. In many ways I wished I had someone to talk to in those awkward times for myself. Sometimes, we all need someone to talk too.

Helping people through ways I never even thought that I would. Helping give people the will to move on. That is my crowning achievement on BZPower. All the stats and ranks mean nothing in the long run. The ways in which we have all affected the lives of others, that is to me the best thing about BZPower.

We always touch the lives of others through every interaction. Always keep in mind that there is someone else on the other side of the computer screen.

:kaukau: BZPower has taught me how to keep a level head in a debate so that it becomes more of an intellectual discussion. I'd like to thank bonesiii and all the people who mercilessly criticized me with the worst accusations possible (bigot, anglocentric, racist, sexist, sycophant, Mary Sue writer, among other things) for opening my eyes to the best and worst personality traits, and my ability to express myself has improved through trial and error.

I may have been absent from BZP for a good seven years or so, but in that time I had some truly amazing times with other forums. I've had tons of laughs, I've seen people pull together in crisis, I've seen people working out who they wanted to be and who they didn't want to be.

Still, by tricks of fate, I wound up not being a member of any really active forums for a year or two. And you know what? I missed it. I missed it a lot. So I came back to BZP to see what it was like, and I wound up staying. Since then I've met a lot of cool people and somehow wound up discovering a hobby (writing) that I probably would have let lay if I hadn't come back here.

So you know what? Thank goodness for the Internet, because without it most all of us wouldn't even have known the others existed. And without that, we'd all probably be a bit more boring. Hugs around indeed.

Honestly BZPower is one of the best things in my life. Something about just talking with a lot of you just makes me a happier person. It opens a side of me I don't really express elsewhere and has really helped me in a lot of ways. In many ways BZPower can act like a fall back for me, because I know that no matter the circumstances, no matter how hard life may get, I can always fall back to here. That truly is the best gift one could ever be given.

So thank you BZPower, thank you guys for just being awesome. Hugs all around indeedly.

BZP and even other forums definitely can manage to help us all grow and learn new things about ourselves. The internet has helped my make friends that I know I'll have for the rest of my life.

I like to think of BZP as a place to express oneself. It is a very welcoming community and I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who recognizes this.
