Hello and welcome to 7CUPS! It is lovely to have you in this community. I hope you can find people here with whom you can share your troubles and be helped through your difficulties.
I am LatteJoy. I am a writer and helper at heart, intrigued most by the subjects of psychology, philosophy and art. I am a lover of people, animals, learning and a good chocolate ganache cake. Being a veteran night owl, I can be found around more when it's dark.
I have had my fair share of suffering from mental illnesses and life in general. Through everything I have learned that it is more than a little supportive to have a willing, non-judgemental ear who can, if not help, at least validate our pains. That is precisely what I am here to do for you.
I am respectful toward all beliefs differing from mine. So I want to give the reassurance that there will be no judgement or criticism from my end with regards to another person's views. My sole purpose of being here is to provide comfort and a virtual shoulder to lean on.
I know that life can sometimes beat us down and that it is not always a smooth ride. That is okay because I believe very strongly that we need some afflictions to shake us out of our natural habitat and drive us to individual growth. In Sigmund Freud's words, “One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.”
If there's anything that you would like to talk, vent or rant about, I am more than happy to hear you out. I'm here to listen, but only you can help yourself best. It is only you who knows what goes on in the deepest, most isolated parts of your mind. All I can hope to do is provide some perspective and consolation.
Thank you for being here. Have a good day and take care. ^_^
