***Verified listener***Not taking up personal requests for now.Hey there. I'm Emily. While you scroll through my profile, let me just say that you are beautiful. And you deserve all the love in this world.Just like a Pillow, I am here to give you comfort when you need it.Leave a message whenever you feel low and you want to talk. I'll reply as soon as possible when I'm not having exams.Take care of yourself and drink lots of water. I am here to give you love when you are unable to give it to yourself. You are important and you are valued. Stay safe. I'm here for you. And about myself, I am a medical student and an amateur writer with a taste for good music and movies and an eye and ear for deep, engaging, philosophical conversations. I can be tough sometimes so I hope you bear with me.Also trying to search for meaning and purpose in life.I've been through a lot too. I understand how it feels. I try my best to be patient and understanding without judging because I know how it feels when people judge you and stereotype.Been there, done that . I wish to give you all that I didn't get so that you don't have to feel what I went through. We're both here on a quest for happiness. Let's help each other find it.And please refrain from sexual chats. It becomes difficult and harrasing for other listeners who are not comfortable. So, please stop making people uncomfortable who are here for a good cause.Thank you! Have a good day!
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. 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. I do not have long-term relationship availability at this time.
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, I am 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.
Hello, I'm Nada! I'm glad that you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea.
It's brave of you to be here!I like to support those who are struggling with various problems and situations and I'd be glad to talk to you about any topic included in my areas of expertise.

.•* Hey there cool person reading my profile. I hope you know that you are awesome, and beautiful/handsome just the way you are
.•* Ive been through a lot, and can relate to many things. I’ve had a fair share of my own battles and mountains ive had to climb.
.•* I’m a non-judgemental person, i like to think I’m pretty fun and chill as well. Im here if you need a friend, or just a place to vent.
.•* I wish I could take everyone’s pains away and replace it with happiness. Unfortunately I can’t, but I can do my best at making things easier for you.
.•* call it cliche, but I really want to make a difference in the world, and make a difference in peoples lives.
.•* Positive Vibes, Positive Mind, Positive life
*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as a story told by you. There are many ups in life as well as many downs but it is up to the author of each story to determine the next chapter.* ~Anya Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year. Many people suffer from mental health struggles but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But what’s harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you aren’t struggling. You shouldn’t have to pretend like you are always okay, out of fear that others will judge you or talk about you or think any less of you. No matter what you are dealing with, you are still you. The only thing that matters is that you know your strength and your courage, and let me tell you, everything that you are is more than enough, no matter who you are or what you are going through. So don’t be ashamed of any part of it. Your battles are what shape you into the strong and amazing person you are. And no matter what anyone tells you, it’s okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. It’s okay not to believe it for a while. It’s okay to struggle. I assure you, you are not alone. Every single one of us goes through that at some point or another.I will always be here to listen to your story, and I will not ever judge you, or make you feel ashamed of what you are going through, or see you as anything less than the wonderful person you are. Because I know that at the end of the day, the one who has the courage to speak about it, is the one who is the bravest of them all.ListenersI want you all to remember that you guys are truly amazing. Spending time on here to help others during your free time shows dedication, compassion, and kindness on your part. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me? Feel free to send me a message at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

My name is Mel and I am a verified intermediate listener that suffers from Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and a survivor of sexual abuse. I have dealt with years of severe depression cycles where I laid in bed for months at a time in pain and feeling lonely and hopeless and felt like a huge burden to my family. I have had many years of treatment and therapy and group therapy, thank goodness for some great peer support and my own therapist, I have worked through my issues, and I am finally in a great spot in my life, I want to give back to my community (mental health) in hopes of maybe helping someone by listening and offering my unconditional support. I have 3 handsome grown sons. I have been married for 25 years to a VERY patient and understanding man and I have a listener twin here at 7 cups, her name is Paula02. I decided to go back to college since my children are grown to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree. I want to become a Therapist or an Addiction Counselor. I am here to listen and support you judgement free through several issues; loneliness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, sexual assault, and bipolar disorder.

Have a wonderful day <3<3 "Alot of people say that you can't just smile away depression. They are right, but some of it is actually wanting to get better and DOING something to get better.

If you ever say to yourself i cant do this its impossible, i cant go on...think of this quote:
"I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for."

" The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the best version of ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own nor does any woman become great on ehr own. The people around them help them to make them great. We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the best version of ourselves. Because that version all exists within us, we just need to unlock it. "
