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 :) 

"For an empty tea 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 IRL-life is feeling too much out of control.  My level of grief within my heart is waaayyyy too high.  There are other things too, but I think perhaps the topic of grief is one that I could start with.  I am not sure what is going to happen for me this week, July 19-25, but staying home - being at home overnight each night - is a sure goal for me.  If any of you are people who pray, people of faith, or wish to send positive vibes -- I would certainly appreciate such things.

And so, I have decided to take a step back from the Listening side of  I'm not sure how long this might last, but I am realizing that my tea cup is nearing completely 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.)

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
They reached out to me when I needed it, I could not be more thankful. Wonderfully helpful and empathetic! Thank you for all that you do! :)
