Lifeâs challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they are supposed to help you discover who you really are.
We can't just hope we will think good thoughts. We have to actively seek them. We have to think purposely not passively.A passive mind is a dangerous thing; passive people want good things happen to them, but they just wait around and see what will happen. They do nothing to contribute to a positive results in their lives.
Be an active person; think positive. - help and strength comes from the one who gave you life!
"You've made this day a special day, by just your being you. There's no person in the whole world like you, and I like you, just the way you are."
What do you do with the mad that you feel?
When you feel so mad you could bite.
When the whole wide world seems oh so wrong,
and nothing you do seems very right.
It's great to be able to stop
when you've planned the thing that's wrong.
And be able to do something else instead
and think this song -
'I can stop when I want to.
Can stop when I wish. Can stop, stop, stop anytime....
And what a good feeling to feel like this!
And know that the feeling is really mine.
Know that there's something deep inside
That helps us become what we can.
For a girl can be someday a lady,
and a boy can be someday a man.'
Hi! I'm glad and honoured that you have found my profile, I am a trained listener for 7cupsoftea and I would be more than willing to talk about any problems that you may have. As like most listeners on this site, I have had my share of experiences and life lessons to hopefully help you someway. It is in my nature to help anyone, the qualities for a listener are....listening (obviously), patience and hopefully helping you with a resolution that might help you to solve in some way, shape or form, thank you for reading this.
Hey! If you're going through anything, talk to me. I've gone through a bunch of stuff and hell, I know I needed someone to talk to. I'll be that person for you now, if you want. I do not accept chats about loneliness :/
Hi, I'm a good listener and have been through a lot of problems myself. I've dealt with social anxiety, depression and body image issues, so I know what it's like to struggle with life's difficulties and I would like to help you as best I can. I will talk to you, no matter your age, gender, sexuality or subject matter. If you want a one-off chat or long term support, that's fine by me. I am also here if you need a general chat. Not everyone has someone they can turn too. I'm non-judgemental and a friendly ear if you need it.
Standard Availability is specific to my status bubble being Green. If it is not green, then I am not available for new chats.
If for some reason it is green but I am not responding, please note that I am generally only available during the hours of 10am-11pm CST. If you are contacting me outside these hours because the status is green, it is a site glitch.Â It has been determined that there is a current problem with my status in the search results; it shows me as always available. Please refer to the chat window for my current status and understand that I am unable to control the errors that occur on the website.
Hi! My name is Lynn, and I'm glad you've found me! I'm a trained listener with a degree in English and psychology as well as professional training in peer counseling. I am NOT a professional psychologist, and I cannot provide therapy services. My scholarly focuses were in ethnic, cultural and gender studies, and psychological studies in abnormal psychology and human sexuality. You'll find me to be exceptionally open-minded and able to talk about practically anything that is on your mind. I am GLBTQ+ friendly. I have personal experience with a number of things, and my professional training has focused mostly on sexuality, depression/anxiety management, and autism spectrum disorder. In my free time, I enjoy writing, movies, and MUSIC!!! Feel free to reach out to me anytime I'm online, and if I'm not, I'll respond to messages as soon as I can after getting notice.
Please read previous member reviews before connecting with me. If you're a fellow listener, I appreciate your interest, but I will hold you accountable to the listener agreement and will not provide emotional wellness support outside the parameters of that agreement, no exceptions!
I am, in general, an acute situation listener. I focus on immediate needs. This means I'm not likely to "just chat" though I am open to doing so. Just note that I focus on emotional crisis first.Â I do not have long-term relationship availability at this time.Â
I am also a person living with ASD. My vocabulary and style of speech has been accused of being mean, harsh, aggressive, you name it, I've heard it. I cannot help it, and I cannot change it. Believe me, I've tried. If you're sensitive to that sort of thing, it's best to move on! This being said, IÂ amÂ a person and I have feelings. All I can do is try my best, but I limit my support list for a reason and ask certain questions at the start so we can be on the same page.
My style is to talk about progressive approaches and necessary steps, whether or not they "feel good"... I'm not one to try and package up harsh realities in fuzzy packages. I firmly believe that every adult has the ultimate responsibility for their feelings and their response to those feelings, so a discussion with me will be about accountability, self-honesty and can sometimes be a "rude" reality check. My expectation for members that talk to me is that they have read this description and accept that this is what they will get from me; that I expect them to be a grown adult, able to speak about issues with maturity and a desire for affirmation and change, and will understand that it is up to them and them alone where the power lies. I am simply a facilitator in your own conversation with yourself; if something I say is sharp, hits home, there is a reason.
Generally speaking, I do not provide support for relationship issues, domestic violence, sexual trauma, discussions of incest and/or other non-consensual sexual experiences. I do not provide detailed discussions of sexual desires, fetishes or dysfunctions; if you need help in this area, I recommend working with a professional.I cannot discuss self-harm, suicidal ideation/events, or abuse events. Please seek support from another listener if you need this kind of help, or reach out to suicide.org
As any listener on here has the right to do, I reserve the right and ability to set conversational boundaries and protect myself as an emotional being. If at any time I feel that either involved party is at risk during our conversations, I will advise as much and do my best to direct the member to the best path.
While I have professional training and education, I cannot provide therapy services or fill in as a replacement for your mental health professional.Â
My background is I am a convicted felon for trafficking narcotics as a youth in highschool. I have survived peer pressure, self-destructive behavior, self-greed and overcame my ego. Survival of the fittest will require respectable morals and character.
Life is a journey on a rainbow. Be sure to experience all the colors before you settle on one.
If you are feeling blue, I may help you get to green.
Green means go, go for your dreams and goals.
Never give up on yourself.
