It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.....
.......I'm always willing to talk, about anything. Any questions feel free to ask. I mightÂ be able to relate to most things. And I hope I could help......
About me, I like archery. I don't have much to do these days so there's a lot of xbox. I like metalwork, but I haven't had access to do that much recently. I really love blacksmithing, something about the fire........My stalker uses this site to contact me I apologise if I seem strange upon answering a personal request. I'll answer all personal requests if I can get to them soon enough or you can click the chat and leave a message that i can get back to laterÂ
Hey :) Glad you found me. I'd love to help with whatever you got going on. Nothing is too big, small, or out there. My experiences with Aspergers, social anxiety, OCD, depression, abuse, stalkers, andÂ bullying have taught me to approach life with an open mind, seek out new perspectives and experiences, think independently, find empowering inspirationÂ in the little things, see the powerÂ in others, and help them see and harnessÂ it themselves. Helping friends along their mental health journeys has been a very gratifying experience and helped me find meaning in my own.Â RealizingÂ the societal misconceptions and judgments that pushed me to consider ending it were never really my own has shown me the power of internalization and inspired me to help people feel comfortable in their own skin and proud of who they are. 7 Cups is a huge inspiration and a testament to the life-changing power of a little TLC and I love being a part of this awesome community of fighters, survivors, and friends who share my belief that everyone is worth fighting for.Â I'm into tech, music, travel, and artsy stuff. I love puppies. Oh and my goal in life is to make the world a better place. Making a positive difference in people's lives means more to me than you know and I'm here for you. Love to chat. My availability is spotty but please still message meÂ if I'm offlineÂ and I'll get back to you. You're awesome. Don't ever doubt that
We are all on our own journeys to living our most happy and fulfilling lives. If I can help you get there in some way, even if I cross your path in the tiniest moment in time, I'd be honored. Verified listener.
Hey thar! Not currently listening as |busy| as heck butÂ if you'd like ta gimme a try anyway, do leave a note. If you hear silence, it is only that. Have a bad memory but this IS the promise. To see feed (RTA), open this page in incognito/private window! That's [ctrl-shift-P]@firefox and [ctrl+shift-N]@chrome ;)Â
When Listening: Hi, comrades and friends! Or still a stranger? Sound the drum anytime. If you hear silence, it is only that. Have a bad memory but this IS the promise. Me is GMT+12, you honies. :D
Two days and four evenings to make the intro this short. You may applaud me, hahahaha.......

---: Usual Times + Frequency (/7)-----------
Evening Eleven is checking in. Uh.. 2.5? Can likely schedule sessions into this time! Same to you, you guesting listener-catchers. Tuesday is sometimes reserved for general chats' grabbing. 0.01 to that. Two to three hours have been the average session. Semi offline and multi-tasking listenees notwithstanding. Note: I can't the multi-tasking myself. 0.8-3 with current listenees. Not many as my profile might tell you. Regular or otherwise.Note! If I'm on around the hours of 2am NZ time and suddenly fall off the visible grid we both had happily inhabited, don't panic! My net for some reason, is regularly crapping out at these times. Most times (yep..) I have made it back. In much the same panic you lovelies are in, worrying over what you might have dones, what might've happened to me, whatever might become of the rest of the session-- Yeah, none of that. Don't see back after 2hours, bid yourself some beauty sleep. Don't come back even if I do at later hours, for your sake more than mine. Life is life and more than a slow, strong, abiding tractor. We can always make up time next or some other time.
Will not ditch without warning. PROMISE. Fellow sufferer of boredom and feelings alike, Slander this name to high heavens if it break. Voodoo dolls! I have my own moments of unreasonably hiding from the world for the longest times. Or pieces of it. I will be back. We will have exactly if not similar kind of fun still and forever. As long as you keep me. Yous who know me (even the teensiest) know this already. Anticipation for new friends is one and same all. Though we may get weary and or wary, nobody likes feeling alone. For the original introduction message in all its (additional) bulk, read on!
And on. Skip all that bit! And on.. Fingers crossed on there never being a character limit on listener profiles. Though that might actually be a more pleasant thing for you, oh wondering readers of a talkative loon. Have had some really cute feedback on old intro but feel free to have more of a hold on my personality before deciding to chitter back!
I know myself too well to claim to be a good listener, giver of advice, confident of life, non-judgemental, entirely open-minded etc. Or unwordy individual. I don't even (consistently) read self help books like so many others on this site. For the same reasons as avoiding horror and melodrama stories- The feelings and atmospheres scare me, even bore me. However, I have ears, I do and will employ them. I have a heart and I will feel for your existence. I have sense, learned the hard way, I will and can keep secrets. My honesty is my insecurity as well as my pride. That same part of my personality promises that whatever it is I say or think, as long as you do not hurt, I most likely won't and can keep talking, listening, being around for all the rest of me 7c life.
Reprimand me for things. If you feel it's any way in order. Even when I do mind. Because development of interaction takes two and me playing bulldozer as I do in everyday life is no help to anyone let alone someone within the depths of distress. Please help me make less of a fool of myself elsewhere and next time. That is all? For now. X)
**A heart filled day to the passionate, a monotone sleep to the tired, a gorgeous, gorgeous smile to wreck the faces of the afraid, the lonely, the outcasts. A thumbs up to the rebel and skeptic but that's just because we're bias and similar peoples.** Oh and yes, I do love paragraphs given and receved, why do you ask?
---: MESSAGES -------------To EVERYONE,
I am learning about this extra sort of someone, extra sort of personality. I am the slightly scolding, slightly brainlessly joking, poking fun listener. Reading forums now, I see this can turn very, very wrong. Either a listener or a listenee, do contact me with more insight on these ways. Especially if you offer info or advice on any of the later two. If you'd like to try me anyway regardless of the fact that our 'styles' are much different, I'd be glad if a little worry prone to have you. I cannot say you won't regret but pinky swear that an unceremonious dropping of conversation is out of our future.Individual guests, non-guests, insecure, fellow paranoids or anon-happy. And people I cannot reach through chat at all. Others, read on pain of vague:
Left ya all in for the sake of blackmail and anonymity. Duh. Less permanent (all my everyday(?) gobbedy, sappy gook) messages like temporary updates, shoutouts, quotes (and gook) to everybody or nobody in particular, etc can be found in either direct PMs and or feed.OAK and East, don't give up on me. I'm sorry you disconnected(?), not sorry I stayed up to 7am procrastinating because you (re!)found me again and showed such delight in doing so! OMG moment, O.M.G. Let's be the permanent friends for real as we intended to be. The passphrase be the last thing we talked about. Guess it's time to set an alarm or something.Z-GIRL, what happened? I proposed to you and you break my heart? Kidding. Hopefully none is sinister reason. (Too much ban hammering on site recently). Here's a balloon for your busier hours, a muffin for your stressier ones and a bowtie for your fabber. Be okay always, be fortunate always. Passphrase is your favourite color.
Heya CAT, sessioning that day so couldn't reply as quick. Maybe I should check the last few links on OUR etherpads.. Anyhow, I fell asleep a few hours into said session. Mortifying I know. Haven't been able to reply 'til now. There's my excuse if you were looking for one. Hopefully, might hear from you again? Unless THAT unfortunate incident happened again. Ugh, site. Passphrase is that [something] burgers I have yet to hear about.!
Dearest LIN, where'd you go? You no longer even exist. Don't be it that anything happened okay, find me again as soon as you can. Find me again even if just to say "am okay but dun want you around again." Was great chatting 'it' for what, once, thrice. Or every time, ha. Only sorry, I did more youtube lyric searching than anything haha. Passphrase is that second artist with that longass name I could never type right. Got it recorded now, yuppers.DAP, we were sessioning, me crapping out like only me connection can. But your name fell off every one of my lists once I finished with my snacking afk. Chat, impacts, etc. Don't keep the stress. You know you can move it good. And if this happens again, maybe you really should look into registering a thousand times :/ See what the authorities say. I will lay my anxiety to rest since you are one of my older listenees. Passphrase: O_en.ARSH, me gone lovely. I spent what feels like a lifetime in denial (or laze) until typing up a message for you here. Lyk, how could you proffer a piece of your heart to me and then simply leave it here? I fear growing dislike or hidden concern on the horizon and only ask to be told at least. Don't worry about coloring chats "wrong" , don't worry about being too deep for our usual talks. I am your strived to be listener, your natural friend to be. Passphrase: Uhm, I don't know. It's been so long! The thing you said your name sounded like.To all LISTENEES: (from sep15-21 feed+)
These are busy weeks. I fear losing some of you from neglect. Some of you again, others' like agains. "Ghosts", they called it in forums. For now though, I ask you to bear with me, us and of course, continue getting "revenge on existence itself" with me. A life with you guys existing in it is real bliss. If I wanted in on a community, I got 7c. I got you guys. Because communities don't exist without a me and you. You, don't leave Me too soon, kay? :))
Also. You GHOSTS who stalk my profile should come talking into PM more. I don't ever bite that hard :) Whether it's the reverse concept of self-satisfaction or not, you all too have become another reason for my continued existence and strongly so.
Everybody, you know where the place is to pour the rants, tears and chatter!
Just of course, be careful of the 10PM or so limit. Which may or may not have gone with the new site design.:/ In the old, if you sent 10+ posts, i would miss everything after number10! Sadness. Thankfully(?) I am all and totally 'ok' with any mass of blob-texts you might need to get out to the asap or otherwise. :D
--- : INTRODUCTION, yo -----
Hello! I've discovered and signed up for this via. @habitRPG challenges and talked to roughly two random others before deciding to continue. I don't think I can offer much in advice (and surely, the challenge also says never to do so because one never knows the exact circumstance and said "advice" can be harmful. I'll try not to reach talk that sounds like preach too much then ;)). But! I will listen to anything and everything (really!) and have talk aplenty that's super off-topic if all you need is that and a super abstract breather :D
I like most creative endeavours, would like to try them all one day and nothing on my bucket list has been fulfilled yet.. Yeah, aw.. I try not to assume and can be blunt when I think or have perceived something about someone. Stories are love and words with personality more so. I'm only sorry that despite all my dabblings into languages, I've gotten only a tad wiser in digital logic and the more obvious fallacies of English.
What else.. Hit me up for random chat, faux philosophical, a rubbish bin of emotional vent or just another friendly and slightly idiotic face in general ;)
Iâm glad you found me on 7 Cups!

My Online StatusÂ Green - This means I am onlineÂ and available to give you my full attention. If you're interested in having a live chat, just send me a request!Â Orange - This could mean one of two things. (1) I might be at my computer, but I might not be ready to give you my full attention in a live chat. I do have some other commitments within the 7 Cups community, so I might be working on those. (2) I might already be in a live chat with another member. So, if I begin a live chat with you, and I change my status to "busy", please don't worry! This just means I'm letting other members know that I'm not available.Â Red - This means that I am offline. While you are welcome to send me a message, please allow 24-36 hours for a response.Â
