Why do I keep sticking around?

Sometimes I wonder to myself why I continue to stick around.
Don't get me wrong, I really like Bulbagarden, its wiki and its forums. I think its one of the more better Pokemon forums out there. But there are days, sometimes a little too frequent for me, where I just feel that I don't get along here very well. Or rather how I get called out on my apparent stupidity on things when I'm just trying to make some decent conversation.
I get it. I'm not a very smart person, which is not something I'm proud to admit either. I like to say that I'm smart at certain things, but certainly not everything, and the rest were things I have struggled with. Okay, so I say something without really giving it some thought behind it first, and in the end come out in error over a false statement. I'm human and I make mistakes, and apparently I make more of them. I do not need a very critical response detailing and putting my mistake to light to everyone else, nor do I want to feel like I'm being attacked over it, because sometimes I do feel that way. A simple post of lighter correction would have been enough.
I'm not the smartest person, and disagreements over things are a given. But critical criticism is something I do not need here. I get that enough IRL, which has became the main source of my anxiety difficulties, and I don't need more. Maybe this is why I sometimes disappear from here for weeks or months at a time.
