Why i like this site

When i first found the English forum it was through a curiosity thing.When i read a few of the threads i felt angry. The more i thought about why i felt angry the more i had to question myself. I realized i was jealous. Yep i know it's a negative emotion but hey i'm only human.
I was angry (just for me) that there was a superb network for newbies and i never had that advantage. I couldn't understand why i had such a fight establishing myself, not to mention the isolation, learning the language etc and you guys had it so easy. Naturally since then i've come to terms (me dad was a miner, minus the canary, we all move on) with what sense this site makes and to value the complaints of others . Sometimes i can empathize, other times i laugh.
So what am i saying? (bugger me if i know) more or less this site is great and even though i've lived here more than 20 years it's always good to hear other peoples views, because it makes you think that little bit further.
Thats me for now
