Hello. I have dealt personally with ADHD, addiction, marriage difficulty and loss of family members. I have experience dealing with family members with mental illness.
Have you felt that in one little moment, it all implodes. Know that in this painful moment, "This is Not Everything You Are"
The reason I am here is summed up by Frank Turner song lyrics:
Life is about love, last minutes and lost evenings,
about fire in our bellies and furtive little feelings,
and the aching amplitudes that set our needles all a-flickering,
and help us with remembering that the only thing that's left to do is live.
Is your past like the saying: "everything that I have ever loved and had to let go of has claw marks." Let's chat about how to let go of the past for a brighter tomorrow.
I think you are best listener here. I feel like I can talk to you about anything and you do not judge me. It feels safe. I have found a really nice friend. Thank you!
I have known this person for a year now. He's been helping me out come out of my issues. I have never seen anyone as good as him. He's a true friend.
Nice, warm and friendly. Just is here for me, and that helps to go through the day
Great to talk to a successful married couple.
Cute couple. They are great.
absolutely love them.
Great listener all around!
Sincere, honest and caring person, just is here wgen I need to talk, appreciate him so much!
Very helpful, kind and responsive. There was one moment where a question was repeated but was very receptive to feedback when I pointed this out. I felt welcome and cared for. Thank you.
It's nice to know that even a stranger can care about others problems.
I love her

I am so glad I can talk to this listener. In a way he has kept me accountable since I could talk about things that were going in my life, on tbe other habd he was just there, understanding, supportive and a real friend who wishes you get better and move on with life. Thank you!
he has obviously a huge amount of experience dealing with feelings, negative or positive and knows how to treat them, that's worth a lot more than it might seem.

Truly one of the most worthy people who deserve to be called a listener on this site.
TiredWithJoy really listened, was easy to talk to and had great advice.
Wow! There should be a "Men's Forum" and this guy should lead it. Solid, caring, experienced advice. He gave it gently, but with enough of a "guy's touch" so that it connected with me. I deeply appreciate what he did for me tonight.
