Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. My name is Crystal. I am here to lend an ear if you need it. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. I want to be here for you, to listen and let you know that I value what you have to say. That's all I want when I need someone to lend an ear, and I am more than glad to do the same in return.
During our chat I can promise you these things:
*To listen without judgement or bias
*To be up front and honest with you
*To show you that your negative experiences, abuse, traumas, depression, or illnesses do not define you
*To let you know that you are not alone
If I say I can relate with what you're going through, it's because I can and have been in that position, or a similar one before, and I have no problem sharing my experiences with you. If I don't fully identify with what you are going through, I empathize in every way I can. It's the type of person I've always been. Helping you see that you're not alone, helps to remind me that I, myself am not alone either. I hope to learn from you just as much if not more than you learn from me. My overall goal when everything is said and done, is not to tell you what to do, but to help you find a solution on your own through our conversation.
In my spare time I enjoy singing, playing the ukulele, cooking, attempting (poorly) to do crafts I see on youtube tutorials, blogging, experimenting with makeup, spending time with my wonderful boyfriend, and of course, netflix. I am also very into fitness, self improvement, and the law of attraction. I believe that before any improvements can be made within yourself, you must accept and love yourself as you are, so that you can love yourself in the future. My favorite color is purple and Cherry Garcia ice cream is my weakness. Also, froyo.
I've overcome a lot in life to become the person I am today. I love to smile and laugh, and try to as much as I possibly can. I'm a believer in the Law of Attraction and do my best to apply it to my day to day life. I live each day as if they are each their own separate experience, irrelevant to tomorrow and yesterday.
If I happen to be offline, then please do not hesitate to send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Remember that we're all warriors. I'm here for you.
