It depends on how serious you are about art.

No. Simply no. Art has made me realize nothing. Only that I am a bad artist and I have no way to improve. It has been this way for 12 years, and my art is still the same...

I generally hate my art now. It's so... the same.

I think the problem is no one cares to teach me.

Even those tutorials, videos, and such don't help

Art changes the way people see the world whether they realize it or not.  Art is everywhere, from company logos to how your sink is aesthetically designed.  Humans are naturally visual creatures and they enjoy looking at beautiful things.  Art is a form of human expression.  It is a form of human love and pain, the trials of life and the inevitability of death.  It’s used for propaganda, it’s used for pleasure and it’s used for everyday practicalities. 

Art is the manifestation of a species that is self-aware and trying to understand its place in the universe.

What about people who draw art but can't get any better, and draw what is simply "On their mind", and at the same time, their art is crap to others, and now to themselves?

Don't draw for other people, draw for yourself.
I can't sing very well, even though I love to.  I do it for me.

Your art is a window into who you are, there doesn't have to be reason, talent or message behind it.  It's just simply a part of you.

I do it for myself to. But now I'm sick of it because it doesn't improve and it all looks the same

You know, I've never been a great artist myself.  There have been times when I've taken a break from drawing for three or four years.

Do what you love. :)

I love art. But now I do not. I'm a lost soul without a desire.

Heheh well, I think it's changed my sense of who I am (as in I have a better sense of myself and I've discovered more of me), but I dunno about you guys.
