Hi there!  Welcome to 7 Cups!
I'm so glad you've found us :)

I was just writing a note to another listener and
I thought, "I really should add this to my own profile."
So, here you go :) 

"An empty cup cannot pour out kindness, love, and compassionate listening (or anything else!), without first being filled up with more delicious tea!" 

Dear friends and future friends!
My life outside of 7cups is getting more and more chaotic feeling.  I wish I had the right supplies to take a week out camping at one of our state or national parks.  I may decided to just go and leave for 24hrs, with enough gasoline for my car, but just "get out a dodge!"  If any of you are people who pray, people of faith, or wish to send positive vibes -- I would certainly appreciate such things, yes definitely hugs too.

And so, I have decided to take another step back from the Listening side of  I'm not sure how long this might last, but I have realized that my own cup is nearly empty.  I need to care of myself (much better than I have been); otherwise I will not be able to care for & listen to others well.  So, I won't be checking for messages here every day, but if you would like to, please send me a message anyway.  It may take longer than usual for me to get back to you, but I hope you will still write to me.  I will get back to you, I promise! 

Yes, so all of that to say, "Hey! I'd like to talk with you." :) Please send me a message!  Whether I am online or offline, I'll get back to you just as soon as I am able!  Then we could set a time to chat, okay? 

I hope to hear from you soon and Dieu te bénisse! (oh, and also, I love French.)

During a very difficult time in my life when I was struggling for words to even convey how I am feeling, this person helped me feel so comfortable in conversation that I naturally developed a sense of serenity and security enough to find the words I needed. When I found the right words, this person easily provided a lot of encouragement and support, while also giving me opportunities to listen as a human being. This kind of conversation has been so helpful for me, just having a friend to speak with without a fear of judgment, that it has somewhat brought me out of a mental crisis situation which has lasted for several days. I want to offer my most sincere gratitude to this listener for displaying the genuine compassion and insight that builds empathy, empowerment, and understanding. I hope to speak more often.
So wonderful to chat with this truly special person
She is awesome...!!
Really helped me understand what I'm doing and why I'm taking my first steps into bettering myself.
Really understood me, thank you.
wonderful just like talking to a friend I. she was very professional no judgement and had a lot of empathy for my situation. I don't have an easy solution for my situation and I don't expect actual advice, but having someone listen like her was very nice and very helpful. God bless and hugs to you
Thank u
