I Owe You, Thank You

Deep down in this emotional roller coaster, there’s an urchin that is stuck to a snorkelers fin. She kicks and kicks, but cannot shake the cling of depression.
Having battled many urchins of depression, I am here to listen.

Iouty helped me to understand many things about myself, which I could not, so professional, patient and kind, great listener, thank you very much!
Very kind, compassionate, insightful, and helpful. Would love to chat again sometime. Thanks so much.
This Listener is Awesome.... :).... Thankyou so much for Listening to me .....
Beautiful Young Lady !
Very helpful, in fact the one person who actually helped me out of over a dozen.
Great help and really restored my faith in this site after a string of bad listeners..
Great listener, Highly recommend, Let me vent and was very attentive.
Thank u:)
Iouty was fantastic. 7 cups is blessed to have them. I will recommend this site to everyone I know. Thank you so much for your time and help.
Lovely person, cares a lot and tries to help as good as possible.
this listener really helped me solve my problem of sleep deprivation and paranoia she helped calm me down and gave me suggestions that i requested for and she was very informative on my situation and listened to me it listeners like her that give this site such a good rep
Amazin gb person overall
she seem to speak out of true empathy. Either from self/traditional education or experience she have a general understanding of mental anguish and are very sensitive to it. She is pretty easy to talk to but not pushy, She's good at reassuring sanity. :)
My listener was excellent. My listener was able to get me to express my feelings that I have hidden for quite some time. I will now be able to get the help I need. Thank you.
Amazing listener, so honest and compassionate, could relate to a lot and listened to me for hours. Thank you for being so patient and caring.
So very patient, encouraging and kind. I felt no judgement and that's important to me.
Awesome listener :)
louty is the most thoughtful, compassionate, kind soul I've ever met. I no longer feel alone in a dark, dangerous and scary world, I've found my light. I am forever indebted to louty for all the help I've gotten. Thank you. I hope we can remain friends for a very long time, maybe even forever! (I know that sounds quite naive, but I have utter faith).
Very kind and helpful. I felt so much better after talking with iouty!
Helpful and understanding.
Really pleasant listener!
I was in a dark place and I tried 5 different listeners before I got the compassion, genuine attention, and care Valerie showed. I will never forget it.
iouty is a superstar!
Made me realise a whole different side of the story. Really has been a help to me!
Thanks for your honesty
Great person
helped me a lot, very good listener and very wise
Good listener, even though I had a problem not included in their topics. They also provided links, to the issue I was talking about.
helpful and nice :)
I haven't really felt listened to in a while. It is really hard for me to open up cause I have major trust issues, but I feel comfortable and supported, and not judged at all. I can't thank you enough for the help!
Fantastic, didn't need to say much but gave me some great ideas for getting onto the right track! Thank you again! :-)
In the short amount of time I've talked to this person (I had to end the conversation a few min after it had started), I found him/her to be genuine and insightful. They said exactly what I needed to hear.
Very compassionate!
It Was trully helpfull. Thanks.
He offered real suggestions to my problems. Not like those we find online. It really helped having someone to actually hear and suggest something of true worth.
