How You've Changed Since Joining FT
« on: January 20, 2016, 09:51:18 pm »
I learned to be open to new ideas and also I became more social because I'm really shy irl and this site has helped me open up more :)

How have you changed since joining FT?

Everything - I'm a completely different person than the one who joined back in 2009, lol.

I think I can sum it up by saying I generally matured. Compared to back then when I felt like Derpy McKnowNothing-Face, I actually have solid, for-sure life goals and I know how to accomplish them. I've become WAY more social in general (thanks FT!) and I've learned tact, respect, and the art of the chill.  8)

I'm still a goober though  :badger:  :lol-fox:

Meh, my nothing changed so far(to my social status),,
 But i just feel better ^-^)
It's like something starts growing inside of me,
I'm starting to like being myself (i'm kinda hate being myself).
None of my friends and family notice any change, because i'm a faker.
I can set up my own condition even if my mind doesn't like it.

Now, i'm an internet chara! I can be myself without being noticed in RL. I feel safe, having fun with other internet chara

I don't think I've changed much, but I do feel better about myself ever since I joined.

I'm very new to not only this forum but the entire fandom, and I've already noticed an improvement in my self-confidence and self-esteem! Woo!

I definitely feel less alone. I don't really have any close friends yet IRL so going on a site like this makes me feel like I have a place to go and people to talk to if I have a problem. :3 I also met some great furries here, and I am so thankful I did. I don't know what I'd be doing right now without this forum. :lol-fox: I haven't really noticed any changes on how social I am, but this forum makes me feel like I'm not as alone.

It's nice to feel a part of the community in a positive way and definitely been a good place to talk to people and get people well acclimated for the fandom :)

I'd like to think that I became a better person, but I dunno. That is a kinda thing for my peers to decide.
Just like a burn will linger, she crept between my fingers, and to my body she has now become a new disease. A fog to cloud vision, more like an apparition. She made a mess and now abandoned me.

Haven't really changed that much. But I do feel like I "fit in" here. I haven't ever really felt that before. :fox-:):

       This website has taught nothing that I didn't all ready know. So far, I've actually became more emotional than I ever have before. I don't enjoy it at all. This is due to a lack of social development that I seem to suffer from. I thought maybe this site would help. I've only been here for a month and a half though and begining tensions have seemed to settle down. Maybe this is what I've needed, or maybe it will only make things worse. Considering I was involved with a flame war in the Debate/Discussion Board within my first month of joining, things may not be so bright. I hope this site has more to show me.

I have learned a lot more about the furry fandom, have have become a lot better at roleplay, and i have become more out going and open about being a furry. This website has changed me for the better :3.

When I first joined I was pretty petrified of people judging my posts 'n such. I've gotten a bit better at the whole "being social" thing now.

I also had a greyfox/crow sona. We dont talk about that anymore  :fox-:P:

I haven't changed at all. Judging that I joined this morning, I'm not surprised.    :fox-:P:

I've become better at articulating ideas and emotions through text. That's the big change I've noticed as I used to not be so good at writing stuff. Ive also learned how to be a part of a community which is quite nice ^^

I feel I've become a faster typer and more tech-savvy recently.
and also more open to making friends beyond my street via the internet.
along with just being a better person overall.

I really haven't changed much, I've just become better at drawing, and a bit more obsessed with Black Butler, oops. xD
