The way to prove yourself is better yourself. I have no sympathy for people who squander their gifts. It's sickening. It's worse than sickening. Its unpatriotic. 22,open minded, pretty laid back guy, from Ireland

BEEN is used when you are talking about a place you have visited.

Examples are: 

- I have only BEEN to Ireland twice.
- I have BEEN there before.

BEEN can also refer to a state of mind you have encountered, or if you are comparing the present with your past.

Example:

- Have you ever BEEN involved in a car crash before?
- This is the first time in a long time that I have BEEN in a romantic mood.

BEING usually relates to someones behaviour or their state of mind. In this sense it is like BEEN, but it is in the present tense. 

Examples are:

- I am BEING awkward.
- She is BEING a pain.
- He is BEING really helpful.

You would never say: He is BEEN a pain.
You would however say: He is BEING a pain

You would never say: I have BEING to Ireland.
You would however say: I have BEEN to Irenad.

BEEN is past tense. BEING is present tense.
