*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!

Hey I'm Sphere and I have finished my internship on 7 Cups. I'm a 19 year old who has just graduated from High School! :) I've been through a lot, and I specialize in Self-Harm chats, even though you're free to talk to me about anything else! :) I'll definitely try my best to help out. Feel free to start a chat with me if I'm online, or you can leave me a message if I'm offline or busy. I'll get back to you as soon as I'm available! :) Also feel free to drop me a message if you would just like a casual chat! ^.^

Hope you find another lovely listener, friend! And I am proud of you for being here~ Asking for help takes just as much courage as offering help.

Hey!! It's Becca. I am 18 years old and I am a feminist. I'm glad you have found me on 7 cups of tea. Since, I have been through a lot myself and understand what it is like to need someone to be able to listen and understand. I have ADHD, OCD, disorder eating, and a learning disability. I also get academic support in school. I understand what it feels like to look different because you need a reader or you get extended time. One of my talents is I am amazing at distracting others. So, whenever you need a distraction, I'm your gal. If I'm not online, I'll answer you asap.More about me: I have been dancing since I was 2 and I also love Photography, graphic designes and writing. Currently I am working on a start up, and am the CMO. Please note that I am still in High School. I am both @Helena's and @Annie's mini me :pMy listener twin is @Lee www.7cups.com/@lee

This is a test, a test to see if you are a human. Please note if something applies to you:Have you ever eaten a booger long past your childhood?Have you ever made a small, weird sound when you remembered something embarrassing?Have you ever purposely lower-cased the first letter of a text in order to come across as sad or disappointed?Have you ever ended a text with a period as a sign of aggression?Have you ever laughed or smiled when someone said something unpleasant to you, and you wondered the rest of the day why you reacted that way?Have you ever put on a pair of pants, and then realized much later that there was a loose sock smushed up against your thigh?Have you ever tried to guess someone else's password so many times that it locked their account?Have you ever had a nagging feeling that one day you will be discovered as a fraud?Have you ever hoped that there was some ability you hadn't discovered yet that you were just naturally talented at?Have you ever broken something in real life, and then found yourself looking for an "undo" button in real life?Have you ever marveled at how someone you thought was so ordinary could suddenly become so beautiful?Have you ever stared at your phone smiling like an idiot while texting someone?Have you ever subsequently texted that person the phrase, "I'm staring at the phone, smiling like an idiot"?Have you ever been tempted to, and gave into that temptation, of looking through someone else's phone?Have you ever had a conversation with yourself, and then suddenly realized you're a terrible person to yourself?Has your phone ever run out of battery in the middle of an argument, and it sort of felt like the phone was breaking up with both of you?Have you ever thought that working on an issue between you and yourself was futile, because it should just be easier than this, or this is supposed to happen just naturally?Have you ever realized that very little, in the long run, just happens naturally?Have you ever woken up blissfully, and suddenly been flooded by the awful rememberence that someone had left you?Have you ever lost the ability to imagine a future without a person that no longer was in your life?Have you ever looked back on that event with the sad smile of autumn and the realization that futures will happen, regardless?Congratulations, you have now completed and passed the test. You are human."Be as honest with yourself as you can possibly can. And it's not going to work for everybody, and I know you're going to be afraid of that, but please don't worry about being accepted by everybody. The people who like you and want to be around you, that's what matters, and that's what's healthiest for yourself." - Hasan MinhajMy lovely Listener twinnies are @allTheLove, @Bella20, @CelegnirCuthalion, and @MadilynRose!

Some of my favourite quotes:
"Everyone wants to be the sun that lights up your life. But I'd rather be your moon, so I can shine on you during your darkest hour when your sun isn't around."
"A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because it's trust is not on the branch but on it's own wings. Always believe in yourself."
"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light."
'Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain."
"Every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."
