Hey there! You can call me Ben) and just like you I found this site during times of severe emotional stress and it helped me feel better! Im here to listen to you, be a shoulder to lean on.. To help you. Feel free to reach out to me!
About me personally I'm 21 years old and a student of Uni. I have suffered physical and psychological abuse as a child and my early teens which has left me damaged. I've been shamed and neglected, rarely remember ever waking up with a smile on my face and yet I kept silent about it all for a long long time.. in social circles tried to fit in and be normal, be cool and be accepted.. it never worked out. Ive experienced failure and severe loneliness.. I've seen a lot of death and misery in my life since childhood and had a very poor support system to help me then, but despite it all I've always had an undying hope for the future!
This site and some of the people I have met here too are my ray of hope, keeping me going and helping me with my daily battle with depression! Reminding me that as long as i'm here, I have someone i can count on and to support me
Hopefully I can be that person for you as well) Learning to love yourself for who you are is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself!
I enjoy doing calisthenic/bodyweight workouts, volunteering, listening, writing and playing music. The guitar is my instrument of choice 👍
A former metalhead now with a liking for calmer music and a special love for Avicii songs))
I love doing research and sketching portraits as well
I take chats on Social anxiety, Relationships, Depression, College life, Bullying, Family stress and Healthy living but I'm willing to listen to anything you have to tell me with an open mind and heart! And I'll try my best to be helpful 😊
Looking forward to getting to know you! 😉

Quote of Acceptance :When we don't accept an undesired event, it becomes Anger,when we accept it, it becomes tolerance.When we don't accept uncertainty, it becomes fear, When we accept it, it becomes an adventure, When we don't accept other's bad behavior towards us, it becomes hatred, When we accept it, it becomes forgiveness.When we don't accept other's success, its becomes jealousy, When we accept it, it becomes an inspiration.Acceptance is the key to handling life well !!

New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time. I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- Jan 21-Jan 24
- Feb 11-Feb 19
- Feb 21-Feb 22
Otherwise, my normal availability will stand - I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slightly slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.
Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out!
You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me. I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you.
If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
"Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself."
"Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day."
Much love to all,
