The only positive I can agree with is empathy to others. It does help, especially in my male dominated work environment that I am more open to others feelings than some of my colleagues.

You are so right @Lee Empathy is in short supply and so needed now more than ever. To be able to take your own sufferings and use what you've experienced to help others going through similar torment is so much more comforting and uplifting than a simple well meaning pep talk from one who can't relate at all.
