One of the first things I ever loved was books, I think. It's something that's remained constant about me throughout the years. My favourite author at the moment's Marie Lu, and here's a quote of hers: Every locked door has a key. Every problem has a solution.
Stories just attract me, I suppose. In much the same way, people do as well. It fascinates me that everyone's so unique, that each possesses a story that's unlike any other. And thus I'm always willing to hear your story, no matter what it is! When I read, I get so caught up in the story that my thoughts and feelings are secondary to what the character's thinking and feeling. I believe - and hope! - that I listen in that way too.
Regardless of your story, you're not a waste of my time, I promise. If you're struggling, I'm really sorry, and I hope that I'll be able to support you. If you've got something you'd like to rant about, then you may think of our chat as a safe space for you, and vent all you'd like. And though these are not the only emotions, I hope my point manages to get across - that no matter who you are or how you're feeling, I'll do my best to be here for you, because you're worth it.
Some things I've dealt with include anxiety, bullying, depression, eating disorders, stress, forgiveness, loneliness and self-harm. I'm a teenager, girl, sister, student and daughter, not necessarily in that order! That being said I'm willing to listen to you even if you're not going through anything that falls under the topics I've mentioned - but if you'd prefer to find someone else, that's okay too. You can do so here.
Welcome to 7Cups. My name is Imogene; it's nice to meet you. I'm so glad you're here.
Here's a bit about my involvement on-site! I'm awfully serious at times (as you can probably tell from my bio), but I'm always ready and willing to help.
