Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative things about being a *B/DL. I've heard some people say that they LOVE being a *B/DL, and they're so happy to be one, and that's fine...but I think if everyone's being honest, there are definitely some downsides to being a *B/DL. I would imagine that everyone has felt some negativity in our lives because of it, even if they don't currently.
However, I also like to think that being a *B/DL can have a positive impact on a person too. Sometimes I try to imagine the kind of person I would be like if I wasn't a *B/DL ( as impossible and silly as that is, but still), and I think that I would be missing a lot of key parts of who I am, even just beyond the AB feelings.
For now, I won't go into the details of it, just to save time and energy...but I may go into it later, especially if anyone shows interest.
But, I would like to hear from other people...pretty much just describing how being a *B/DL has had a positive effect on your life or who you are.
