*Only taking self-harm chats at the moment! Feel free to PM me for support with this topic! **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 issues 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 that strong and amazing person. 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 strongest 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.

Hey, my name is Rebecca! I love playing softball, going on hikes, and just being outdoors. I love spending time with my friends too. I am a college student. I plan on majoring in Psychology and minoring in Spanish. :)
I've been through a lot in my life. I struggled (and sometimes still do) with depression and anxiety. With the help from my best friend, I found some great coping mechanisms. I would love to share some with you if you would like to send me a message. :)
My time zone is Central Standard Time, so if I don't respond right away it could be because our time zones could be different. I'll try to reply as fast I can. I have the app on my phone and I get an alert when I get a new message. I don't judge and have a passion for helping people, so I would love to talk with you. :)

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.

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.

Hiya I’m so glad that you’ve found me here on 7CupsOfTea!
I have had many experiences with life and now I enjoy helping others to get better as I know how it feels when you are lonely and have no one to talk to, that's why you have come to the right place! I am here to listen to you and support you and guide you on what's best for you. I can listen to you if you are going through..bullying, self-harm, relationships (especially long distance), depression, panic attacks, OCD, religious issues and homelessness. I have also first handedly experienced what it's like to go through an illness so if you would like to talk about any issues that you may be experiencing, message me don't be shy and I will gladly listen to you and help you the best I can.
No question is too big. No problem is too small. There's no need for you to be alone. I can be your shoulder to cry on. Just remember that I love you all
By the way, meet my lovely friend Winnie the Bear 🐼

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."
Letting you all know I'm going to be away from January 2nd to January 28th beause I'm going on a trip with my family! I probably won't have WiFi at all so I'm very sorry if I can't get back at you during this time! Take lots of care and Happy New Year!---------
Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. In the future I would love to work in a laboratory studying neuroscience and illnesses regarding the human brain! I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.
I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here.
I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too long to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my closest ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more. Right now I have a very tight schedule, and I get aroun 5-10 new chats daily. Therefor my status is mostly offline because I can't take many more chats. I'm mainly working with scheduled chats only. If you need immediate help, I would recommend reaching to someone in the browse listeners page! My responses can take 2-3 days - but I'm always listening!
