*If you have been referred to me by another listener you are not required to schedule with me. I have agreed to accept your chat and am available for you now.*I've been here for 6 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. You can find a full list of topics I support down below under categories. I work almost non-stop at my real life job which unfortunately has a huge impact on my availability. For this reason, I am not able to take on long-term members at this time until I am able to find a balance.♥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day based on my work schedule♥
~ due to a busy schedule response time might be a bit long ~
Hey there, I don't know who you are but it's nice to have your eyes looking at my profile! You can call me Ila (with capital i). I'm 22 and I'm a girl, coming from the beautiful Italy but currently living in Germany. I'm in University and I'm a programmer. I'm a straight-forward person, sometimes sarcastic and a bit silly but hardly ever uncomfortable with a topic.
I will do everything to be a professional and empathetic guide because you only deserve the best, never feel like you're bothering or burdening me because you're absolutely not: I appreciate your courage and your choice to share your story with me.
If you ever feel alone, overwhelmed or lost, I hope you'll consider reaching out for support, it's not worthless at all. Looking for help is the first step for recovery. "There's a world of difference between what we see and what is."
**On a break for an unknown amount of time**
----Count Your Rainbows,Not Your Thunderstorms.----Sometimes all you need is someone just to be there even if they can't solve your problems. Just knowing there is someone who cares can make all the difference. Happy to help!♥*Apologizes I'm currently not taking new chats.*
NOTE: My status is almost always offline - you can still PM me and I'll get back to you ASAP, or look in the chatrooms to see if I'm online
Listeners: I am back! I am working on getting some badges back so I can be a full mentor again!
