"Listen to understand rather than listen to respond."***Leave me a message and I will get back to you so that we can set up a time to talk. I look forward to hearing from you!***Hey guys, my name is River! I am a soldier in a constant war, but I can say with certainty that I'm winning.
I'm an Aquarius sun-Scorpio moon (for those of you who don't know what that entails, it means I'm argumentative but also very open-minded!). I am also an ISTP-A and primarily a Type 8: The Challenger, though I'm not nearly as scary as that sounds.
I love to read about the human mind, random facts, mental illnesses and how to manage them. I also write pretty much anything. I draw well, too, but usually mess my drawings up when I try to add colour. I'm a huge fan of rock music; you'll find me dancing to Green Day or Marianas Trench at 4 am. I like to cook as well, and I make a killer salad. The trick is orange and lemon juice as a dressing (citrus yum). I want to go into experimental and/or forensic psychology and perhaps neuroscience or criminology! As you can see, I still have much thought to give it.
I watch Supernatural (“A wise man once told me, ‘family don’t end in blood.’ But it doesn’t start there either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them. Family’s there; for the good, bad, all of it. They got your back, even when it hurts.”), The Big Bang Theory (Bazinga!), and Criminal Minds (Hotch and Blake are my favourite).
I have Bipolar Disorder which is like an unwanted rollercoaster ride and Asperger's Syndrome, this means I'm a genius hah. I also have Synesthesia—basically means that I have some werid wiring in my brain and I connect certain things to other certain things instinctively—not as much a diagnosis as a superpower! This means that I feel the same physical sensations as other people do (mirror-touch), and I see people as colours (personality-colour). This being said, it might not sound so weird when I say that I like green, purple, and orange people!My Roles:Verified Listener - I have been verified by the 7Cups community based on quality active listening skills.

Kenz is both an amazing listener and astounding friend! She is highly empathetic which shows in every aspect of her life, be that her listening, her frienships, or her relationships. She loves being overprotective of others. I'll let you in on a secret: she likes to think she's tough but I can vouch for the fact that she is a major softie. Icicle0212:
Van is hilarious and lighthearted, but is so incredibly caring that he surprises me sometimes with his endless wisdom. He's open-minded, and much more of a lover than a fighter! greenfox3456:
Benji is a close friend of mine; always thoughtful of others and very welcoming! He was one of the first people on 7cups who made me feel like part of the community, and I can never thank him enough, though I do try by giving him oreos and skittles. Sydney113:
SydnEy has a very positive and loving energy that follows her into whatever room she enters. She's very lovable and the kindest person I have ever met! I don't even feel that bad when she steals my chips.
~ And a quick shoutout to my mentors @hopedreamlove and @24Help1! ~***Feel free to text me about anything, I can hold a conversation pretty well (especially if it's about shrimp)***

I am happy to take chats on Coronavirus CoVid19 wuhan and 7 Cups has a whole category of forums devoted to the topic here:-https://www.7cups.com/forum/QuarantineSupportCoronaVirusCoVID19_201/If I am not online then you are welcome to leave me a message - but please tell me what you want to talk about so we can get off to a flying start. I will get back to you when I am next able, but please bear in mind that I get a lot of messages and I will reply to the most urgent first so if you just say hi, do you really just want a hi back?At weekends my response will be slower as that is usually my time off from 7Cups, and I may not respond to new requests till Monday.
I hope you understand that. We all need time for ourselves to recharge our batteries and relax. ONE STEP AT A TIME"We all have different size footsteps that we leave behind on our journey through life.
Sometimes we can change the size of our footsteps, the imprint, the impact, the direction.
Sometimes our footsteps land on rock and they do not show, or they land on sand and stay for a while,
Other times they get washed away by massive oceans or powerful waves.
But each and every footstep is important in so many ways.
Ways that we may not even know about.Watch your step, think about your steps, plan your next step, and the rest will follow." Listening ... one step at a time
Butterflies are a symbol of hope that we can all change from a small
brown grub into a beautiful amazing butterfly! One step at a time!
