Coming, going, the waterbirds don't leave a trace, don't follow a path. I'm Charlie and I'm trained, verified and experienced as an active listener for both adults and teens. I like to support people who are struggling with something. Also people who aren't struggling with anything. And people who aren't sure whether they're struggling or not. The poem is said to be by Eihei Dōgen, a Japanese poet who wrote it around eight hundred years ago. I don't know why I like it. I just do. My photo is the moon shining on the sea. There's some darkness and some clouds there but the light of the moon shines on everything. I like this too. If I'm online, please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline or busy, please feel free to send me a message so we can arrange a time to chat. No topic of conversation is off-limits for me, not even difficult and distressing topics. Thank you for reading my profile. I'm glad you are here!In an emergency or a crisis: If you are in an emergency or a crisis—for example, if you are at immediate risk of suicide or other serious harm—7 Cups is not the right place, because we cannot deal with emergencies or provide crisis counselling. Click here for information about getting help: Get emergency or crisis support Schedule: I don't have a fixed schedule. I'm online some weekdays between about 4:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. US Eastern Time. In the UK this is 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. On other days and at weekends I'm often online too, but at times that are not predictable. If you message me or tag me in a forum I'm usually able to respond within a day or two.

 Hi :) my name is jenny and i am an adult and teen listener here im in my 40s have been married for 26 years and have three children who are all adults now I really do enjoy talking to people of all ages who are dealing with a lot of different situations i just ask that you know what you want to talk about and not just message me and then ask me what i want to talk about im fine with casual conversation but you should take the lead it is not a listeners job to try and think of ways to keep you from being bored and you can take all the time you need when it comes to saying whats on your mind im ok with waiting i do not expect quick replies and i also do not expect every question i ask to be answered - you choose both what and when  If im in online mode you can always expect an immediate response and live chat (any listener on green should be responding to you immediately) and if im in offline mode i may or may not be able to have a live chat so just leave a message and i will respond when i can and we can leave eachother messages and if we are both here at the same time we can have live chats what are your expectations? what dont you like? let me know and we can work it out and better understand eachother misunderstandings and hurt feelings happen quickly if your feelings are hurt its not ever my intention and so its a misunderstanding and i will not be upset if you bring it up i will only be glad that you let me know ... I will always be honest and open with you and will let you know right away how i feel and if im uncomfortable with anything and i hope that you do the same   I have many different opinions and interests however above all else i believe in communication and honesty between people I am also very interested in mindfulness and self awareness in paying attention to your thoughts and how your interpreting your life your reality and I absolutely believe that the way to change your reality and take control of your life is to first think about and then question your thoughts the producers of all your emotions and behavior your misery or happiness and ultimately your life I believe that there is nothing more important to your well being than to become aware of and to take control over your thoughts instead of letting your thoughts control and prevent you from having a life and future that you deserve and then making a plan and working on one thing in your life at a time until what you want becomes realityIf your feeling stuck in your life right now I would love to help you to identify and move past the internal and external blocks that keep you from moving forward and having the life ​​​​​​you deserve because we can all choose to do something different at any time outside of the established habits and routines that we have created for ourselves you choose when and how but change is definately possible its never too late and you can do it ! so if that is something that you are interested in working on it is definately something that i am interested in helping you with you are your own expert noone knows your life or mind better than you do and because we carry the possibility of change with us everywhere all the time and also the power to make it happen there is nothing more life changing than becoming more aware of your thoughts and actions find free mental health services  https://bit.ly/2KpgZKQfree depression workbook  https://www.cci.health.wa.gov.au/Resources/Looking-After-Yourself/Depressionstart getting control over your thoughts today  http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/abcde.htm  overcome your defeatist mindset  https://bit.ly/2RQg2Aido you feel like your life is out of control?

Have you heard of the mammalian dive reflex? Try leaning over a sink or surface and then placing cold water, ice or a cold pack over the temples, eyes and upper nose region for ~30 seconds. This divelike stance then triggers a reflex that occurs in nature when mammals submerge in cold water. Think back to the last time you dove into a cold pool at the start of summer – you may recall the sensation of slowly cutting through the water with your arms, and a feeling of slowed time as you drifted up toward the surface. As we dive face first into cold water, our heart rate slows and our breathing regulates as the body prepares to conserve energy for survival. We have engaged our parasympathetic nervous system and experience a calming effect.  So next time you feel highly activated, distressed, upset, angry think “T for temperature” and try running cold water on your forearms, taking a hot or cold shower, chewing on ice or just holding an ice cube in your hand.  When we briefly change our temperature, we ground ourselves. I   Intense exercise brief bursts of exercise can be helpful in the grounding process. Think of this process as ‘using up’ some of the energy that may be fueling high-energy emotions like anger or anxiety. When in a low-energy state (e.g. feeling, down, depressed, lethargic) getting the heart rate up will invigorate the individual.  It’s important to note that exercise can be a highly sensitive issue for those who struggle with eating disorders.  If you’re at a place in your treatment where you need to limit exercise, it would make more sense to try the T or P and P skills. P   Paced breathing allows us to activate our parasympathetic nervous system as we regulate and slow our breath. With paced breathing we breathe deeply into our lungs and diaphragm. As we slow the pace of our in-breaths and out-breaths, we may achieve 5-6 thoughtful breaths per minute.  Some people refer to deep breathing as “having a pill in your pocket.” In other words, breathing is a highly accessible skill – available to you at all times no matter where you are – and one that can be very effective to calm and steady you when emotion is riding high. ​​​​​​P  Progressive Muscle Relaxation is paired with paced breathing.  With paced breathing we tense and relax muscle groups throughout the body to promote a relaxing effect. If you are feeling extreme emotion, you may try mindfully tensing all of your muscle groups at once and then dropping your weight back into the ground or into your chair. As you travel from head to toe engaging all of your muscle groups or one area at a time, pay close attention to the sensationshttps://columbuspark.com/2018/04/23/easily-accessible-effective-tip-distress-tolerance-skills/     Techniques and tips that therapists use to help people deal with intrusive thoughts (including memories)Allow the thought to happen   Intrusive thoughts become more distressing the more we try to make them stop. The act of trying to stop them actually makes them more readily available in our brains and thus they are likely to return. Allowing the thought to happen allows it to run its course and as distressing as it may be it will come and it will go. Using self-talk to coach your way through the process is key. "Here is the thought I’m not going to focus on it, I’m going to let it pass." This can help that thought carry less weight. Find yourself a mantra  This can be a word or a phrase it doesn't matter what it is as long as it resonates with you.  When you start to feel/hear that onset of intrusive thoughts repeat it to yourself in your head. The idea is to redirect from those negative thoughts by putting something positive and repetitive on top directing your attention. Remind yourself that they are just thoughts  Thoughts themselves don't have any power.  By remembering that a thought itself cannot hurt you, you are more likely to let the thought exist without altering your behavior.  Intrusive thoughts are distressing because you believe them. Remember, just because you think it, doesn't mean it's true. It's totally natural to have these kinds of thoughts, but remember that these thoughts come from the past and have yet to prove that they represent the truth today we need evidence before we believe what other people tell us and we should do the same with our thoughts. Imagine that the intrusive thought is a thing or person or animal  It can be anything a bird or insect (that you can visualize swatting away or spraying!) a grey cloud or maybe a tiny cartoon character (and you can visualize the thought from the cartoon character in a cartoon bubble) Perhaps it's a 5 year old kid in the backseat nagging for your attention or a little green blob or a little Donald Trump having a tantrum you can try different things even if it's silly separating yourself from it can be incredibly powerful. Say thanks  Can you imagine how different it might be if you say "Yes brain, that's nice - but I'm not interested in that now" vs "Go away I'm so sick of you!"  Pretty different huh? So "talk" to the thoughts:  'I see you thought, you are OK, I love you, but I'm not listening to you." This technique shows both self-love and compassion for the way your brain works. Love and compassion can be critical to mitigating tough feelings of distress. Refocus  Perhaps a crossword or something to fidget with or even just something that smells nice! Try to engage mentally in something else intrusive thoughts often come to us when our brains are quiet, or when they are over-taxed and stressed. When there is nothing going on or too much going on the intrusive thoughts are triggered. By finding an activity that fully engulfs our concentration, the thoughts often move to the background. Music, movies, a conversation with someone, a sport, hobby, or activity can engage our brain in something else. Refocusing can be quite calming and even potentially healing.Grounding and mindfulness exercises  After acknowledging the thought's presence, spend 5 minutes noticing things in the room. By exploring things around the room like you've never seen them before, describing their color, texture, shadows exc. you are keeping your mind in the present moment and making it more difficult to get carried away by the intrusive thought. Anytime you notice the thought has taken you away, simply ​​return to noticing the room. sight sound taste touch the more senses the better.  Be kind to yourself - It does take time  forgive yourself for having intrusive thoughts and for not being able to get rid of them. If anything, that fuels fear and anxiety, and makes everything worse. The sooner we can accept that that's how your brain is wired for now, the faster you can work on building more grounded wisdom.7cups discussion on managing negative internal dialogue  https://bit.ly/2HOwCLl7cups discussion on dealing with panic attacks  https://bit.ly/2MomF978 hour talk down with gentle rain sounds   https://youtu.be/4i53B-y_i2oPTSD nightmares why they exist and the best treatments  https://www.verywellhealth.com/the-causes-and-treatment-of-ptsd-nightmares-3014688https://youtu.be/ySL3NllIhfAalways on 24/7 youtube livestreams of relaxing sounds  the first link is light instrumental music and the second one is calming ambient bineural beat music both have changing water nature scenes for sleep study redirection or meditation   https://youtu.be/63GF7qbr34U   https://youtu.be/4qtD8RmvWn0< breathe in - breathe out >  count up to your favorite number with each breath and then do it again you can also repeat a mantra for breath in and one for breath out focus your mind on breathing counting and repeating  free sleep well guidebook you can download and share  https://www.dropbox.com/s/bn9h4n0kcqrupma/Sleep-Guide-Verywell.pdf?dl=0 My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.   Albert EinsteinWe must not allow other people's limited perceptions to define us.  Virginia Satir  The arrogance of believing that today, that at this moment in time, we’re so perfectly correct in our beliefs that we can silence all disagreement, prevent any heretic from calling our gods false, is absurd ... It’s not that people haven’t believed they were finally so enlightened that there couldn’t possibly be any errors in their judgments, anything new to learn, any mistakes to correct. People have always believed that. And they’ve always been wrong. That’s why we still need heretics, not because they’re necessarily right but because they aren’t necessarily wrong.   Scott Greenfield When Ira Glasser Ran The ACLU                        just a place for me to put 7cups quotes that i really like :D will be adding to this as i come across comments in the forums if its here it does not mean that i take one position or another on any issue but only that i think that these words could also apply to different situations or are universally true making them genuine quotes and the wording i admire as being simple perfect and poetic also if anyone wants me to remove anything here if its your comment but dislike it here or see something you think id like just message me We have a system that devastates some of the people we most wish to support and at the same time barely inconveniences the people we most wish to exclude.   RarelyCharlie  I'm angry because I'm scared. I'm​ scared of disappointing you. I'm scared because you always told me that my reputation was the most important thing, and what people think of me is more important than how I feel about myself. I'm angry because when I express that something you do upsets me, you mock me for it, and twist it so I'm the one hurting you. I'm angry because what if I'm actually the problem? If I could just be a better child would you stop? I want to feel like I'm worth more than just how good I am.   ohlemone  https://bit.ly/2Sdt7msMaybe it's important the conversations happened in public fashion. It is scary and hard. Yes. But all the private avenues weren't working. Our leaders and friends who cared so much were literally being forced out and then ultimately eliminated. At least now we know why. If I hadn't been told, and everyone just was gone, I would have felt even worse then I do now. I would have thought, wow, they abandoned and didn't care after all.    KLM3278  https://bit.ly/2NWQwTQThe punishment of people for expressing genuine concerns. The failure to acknowledge why people may ‘bite' at certain comments. There should be understanding, not punishment. There should not be one person at the top beating everyone else with a big stick when all we have to defend ourselves is words and even then those words are often cut or misinterpreted.   DeborahUK  https://bit.ly/2NWQwTQWords do nothing. Actions do. Things can be discussed until the cows come home, but what matters is what's actually done and most of the time, what's talked about vs. what's actually done are two completely different things, I think people forget that a lot.   Torremp  https://bit.ly/2NWQwTQI always feel sad and I always remember how things were and how things are now... I just can’t accept that things changed so dramatically in just a few months. Im hurt and confused, I’m not sure who to trust anymore. I don’t know if you all understand how hard it is. I want to give it a chance but it’s so difficult to do so. I’m afraid I’m gonna lose more people and I’m afraid of connecting again... This isn’t just talking to somebody for me, this is having an emotional connection. That’s how it is for me and imagine when you lose the person you are emotionally attached, imagine how that wouldmake you feel. Feel the pain I feel not because I wanna hurt you but I wanna show you how much it hurts.   sensitiveShade5337   https://bit.ly/2x1FOFt I know you are all trying to pick up the pieces but I can’t stand by and watch people I love be replaced by new people I don’t know or who have never been apart of this community before. This was a family, it was a safe place for so many people, and now it’s been destroyed and I don’t want to be apart of this new thing ... My heart hurts so bad. I had a safe place, I was healing, I was doing better, and growing up, I had a support network on here of people who knew me, understood me, knew how I functioned and loved me. And it’s all been ripped away from me. And im never ever gonna get that back. I can’t stress just how much that hurts right now.   WaterLily16  https://bit.ly/2NzjMTH Everyone is working on putting together the pieces of their own puzzle. Recovery is a journey that takes time. It involves finding out a lot of information about yourself through a process of self discovery.  It's important to never compare your recovery journey to someone else's path. No two people ever have the same puzzle design. Some people have a 25 piece puzzle set and some have one of those 10,000 piece sets but each person's story & struggle is valid ... Sometimes you have to step back from the individual pieces and look at the bigger picture of what could be and sometimes you focus on one small piece at a time. This can help you get unstuck. It may feel like forever but every matching puzzle piece makes a big difference over time!   summertimeSamness  https://bit.ly/2CAM0cFAlthough I’m getting along and all appeared to be going well on the outside, I’m really masking my emotions and feelings masking my own pain about feeling somewhat imprisoned. In fact, when I’m faced with a fearful situation, I try to hide my emotions behind a brave front and to smile while inside I’m really crying... There’s a painful contradiction between what’s in my head my mind and the facade I adopt for the rest of the world   M2nc4s https://bit.ly/2Ge0IX9  Maybe the grieving process is tied in with change and acceptance as well... finding what you have control over vs what cannot be changed. I struggle particularly with this part, but I'm trying to tell myself that I have to reach some level of acceptance of the things I cannot change and are beyond my control. Try to bend with the wind. I believe even considering the idea of acceptance is something that must feel natural and good to a person, even if we might still feel sadness with it.    NoneTheWiser  https://bit.ly/2x1FOFtYou said that you're hoping you'll see your expectations but are getting disappointed - could you share more of what those expectations are so that we can try?   Anomalia  https://bit.ly/2OiSXk8Im struggling with the word compliment mostly because I don’t feel there’s anything to compliment with respect to me. But because self compassion is a goal I’ll try to give myself credit just for the fact I’m still fighting irregardless of how dark and hopeless things feel right now. I’m holding on to hope as if it’s my only lifeline.   ArianaMay  https://bit.ly/2OiSXk8Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.   resourcefulMagic51  https://bit.ly/2QtYypfThere is a kind of grey area between wanting to live and wanting to die that's very difficult to describe. There are really no words for it.  RarelyCharlie  https://bit.ly/2Qwicj5If you want to help people, then help people. If nurses punched walls and complained every time they got disrespected or aggressed, hospitals would be empty. Have you had 10 chats, and 6 were bad? Learn to see them coming, cut it short, and focus on the 4 chats that were genuine   Blaze  https://bit.ly/2CZ30pMSomething just took me here I don't know what this is but like am I supposed to ask for help? cause I don't really talk much/do well with taking advice lol idk why I'm here I'm so tired holy shoot (can I swear here? idk so let's put shoot)    liamlemons  https://bit.ly/2D6HHD5You're a part of that community and your voice always matters. Never be afraid to offer suggestions or feedback or discuss your concerns ... You'll never know how much impact you're going to make and how much enlightenment you can give once you speak up. Don't belittle that inner fire burning in your belly.   Erato  https://bit.ly/2S215uYSpeak up. when something happens, speak up, because it's your word against god knows how many who have come to dislike you or have been rallied, and there will be no trial, there will be no evidence, there may not even be any punishment.   bunnypants  https://bit.ly/2S215uYThere's a stereotype around here somewhere. Curiously, it's a stereotype about curiosity. It is this: As we get older, we become less curious. I think it makes sense. I'm no longer as inquisitive as I was when I was younger, and not everything has to explained - although some things still do! I've been thinking that a potential reason is because of school and exams especially the latter. Exams kind of condition you to believe in one answer, and often you're given no explanation save for 'It just is' ... But it just is what?   Imogene  https://bit.ly/2WCEUdFI have come to the realization that the biggest gap between two people is misunderstanding. Often focus is on how others may or may not feel and or think about us (which is bizzare really as how do we even truely know we aren't them and can't at all control it) Energy and time is put into trying to influence or prove ourselves and how we are judged. Perhaps instead we need to spend more time ensuring our intentions are actually being expressed in such way as best to clearly portray whats desired. Don't compromise yourself as it is enough for those who are enough for you.   tomwillow  https://bit.ly/2SFAhRKThe past is done... you don't have to atone for all and every mistake you may have made through out your life. You can't, I mean yeah you could spend your whole life trying to make up for things but it's the original players that set the whole game into motion..so technically, wouldn't you be atoning for their mistakes? Why should you have to be held accountable for the pain and frustration that they caused?  Every day is a new start a new chance to be the person you'd like to be, to learn better ways. Of course there will be days that you will fall and mess up. I'm a legend in my own mind when it comes to screw ups. But...The next day is always a new one too so you try again. Thomas Edison said "I haven't failed I just found 10,000 ways that didn't work" So maybe it takes 10,001 or a million. As long as you keep trying.   mytwisted&

I am unfortunately unable to take member chats at this moment. I strongly believe in psychology - as a psychology student - I view our Psyches/psychology to be a key for all success in life. I believe that soulfully, we are all butterflies - we suffer from trials and misfortunes, and bit by bit, we are purified by our sufferings, until we are able to soar like a great butterfly. But the greatest thing amongst the chaos of this world, is that we can unite in the face of darkness in order to grasp the light. Conquer your life today, and reach out whenever needed! 🦋I am a verified, trained active listener on several leadership teams here. I believe in the power of listening and motivating one another for success. Apart from my work here, I am a bookworm, poet, and lifelong learner. 🦋 My journey at 7 Cups started as an intern. I graduated my internship here with honors, and put together a project on Social Media Depression (link found at the end of my bio). 🦋 I am the Community Mentor Leader for the Veterans and Military Support Community. Further, as a Forum Team member I have attained several roles on the Forum Team, alongside being a Project Agent for the Forum Team Engagement Track. I also enjoy being a Room Supporter, Discussion Writer, and Feed Team member. 🦋 I have not been raised or born in Pakistan and am only just recently adjusting to the culture/norms associated with the country. My first and primary language is English and I am not fluent enough in Urdu. Kindly respect that. 🦋If you are interested in learning more about the Veterans Community and the Honors project, discussed above, please click the links below. Thank you!

***I am sorry I can't take any new chats at the moment***When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.- Harriet Beecher Stowe

I have a strong educational background on which to draw from (2 advanced degrees in Psychology and  1 in Business) as well as a life full of rich experiences.  I'm happy to listen and happy to help. All that I ask is that you come willing to invest in yourself, as much as I am willing to invest in you. Please allow Victorias Secret to remain a secret - NO SEX CHATS, discussions of the male or female genitalia or human reproduction.  Please consult your primary care physician. MESSAGES FROM THE BIRD HOUSE (This is just OUR fun spot and may change often...either something that was on the mind of Phoenix or an idea from one of my lovely baby birds ((aka my guests, and members)).  Yes, YOU!  You are my 7 cups family!  Swoop on in, we all learn from one another.  If you have a quote, a thought, or a song you would like listed here, let me know)! Try to sing a little, play a little, and dance a little every day!  Remember to love your inner child. Everything you ever needed to know, you learned in the sandbox ROCK ON BIRDIES, ROCK ON! Gym theme song for the day:  Myley Cyrus "We Wont Stop" It's me that bounce the light The Sugary Knight Shift ------This is my Tribe----- The best of friendships are born from respect.  Over time, comes a deep sense of caring, trust, gratitude and love. Octopus Twinnie: @ ItsDev  The true Octopus master of multi-tasking.  The tried and true and even when the chips are down.  They do it all along with a big heart, compassion and a smile.  (gosh, that's a lot of arms Dev, how do you do it?) Magical Twinnie:  @Alpacaking  With wand in hand the Magical twinnie will transform any room and any interaction bringing joy to others.  They sprinkle fairy dust as well with knowledge, help and huggles. (got that one right "blaby")Half Nerd Twinnie:  @VickyP  Never underestimate the power of the half nerd twinnie.  Smart, funny, the quintessential onion with so many layers.  Quick to rise to the occasion and help others in need. (you might be an onion, but you'll always be my "hi Sausage")   It's been a privilege to stand in the light of all three of you and bask in your glow!  *hugs*

   --Hello I’m Rumple--Hello I am happy to see you reading my bio So a bit about me. I have a good sense of humor and love laughing with others. I enjoy spending time with my kids, all my pets and plants. I am also very crafty and creative in concerns to arts-n-crafts. In my free time I have Netflix going on and typically into my plants or doing 1-2 more things. I have had a very abusive past myself. I suffer at times with social anxieties as well as some self esteem issues. And of course the daily life stressor's we all have. I like to share my spare time here and listen to adults/teens on a variety of topics. I can show you empathy, understanding and validation. I however do not feel it's right to give advice to anyone. I feel that it robs you of choice and the freedom to figure out what's best for you.CHATS-I-DO-NOT-TAKEI do not take any sexual chats on any topic-nor do I take any relationship chats--MY TWINNIES--MusicalMagic - such a giving heart and so devoted to helping others hereHeatherBug-She is a blessing in disguisePassionatePeyton - wonderful person, is a great encourager and mod buddyfluffyUnicorns84 - my wonderful mentor buddyArwa - is a wonderful and active listener and my Teen TwinnieCaringBrit- She is wonderful to work with and funnyLucy- Has great insite and funny, good to chat withKrinkTheMellowUnicorn- Great motivator as well as teaching me code--THINGS I DO HERE--*** Adult/Teen Listener*** Teen Mentor*** Group Moderator*** Peer Support*** Internship Mentor*** Leader of the QandA Team*** CML for Mindfulness Team*** Forum Supporter*** Safety Team*** Forum MentorAlways Remember These Things.............Always Believe In Yourself    Accept everyone no matter what  Bad days do pass Always give yourself plenty of love,respect,care and passion
