A trustworthy, empathic and optimistic listener (and university Psychology student) who would love to lend an ear to anybody who needs to vent. I'm a cat mom and I'm free everyday between 2AM to 4AM EST. I am open to any type of concerns as long as they are not sexual in nature.
Hello lovely people! I'm glad you found me on cups. Listening to you helps me forget about my own problems 💜 I'll be more than happy to listen to you and be there for you as you go through a difficult time. I'm in no position to give you any advice. But if our conversation is therapeutic to you, or even just makes you feel lighter in general, I'd be the happiest in the world.
My name is Leah and some things that I enjoy doing on my free time include painting, reading, listening to music and playing with my dog. I find meditation and exercise are two things I like to do daily that help keep myself mentally and physically healthy. I'm here to listen and provide support on any issues that you may want to discuss. I hope to create a comforting and open environment for anyone who wants to talk.

Activity Scheduling Activities can be connected to the way you feel. If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood:
Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you
Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trustBecome more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others
Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)Keep a gratitude journal

Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website. You can also talk to someone about your experience of depression by requesting to chat with one of our listeners.Millions of people suffer from depression everyday?

*Not taking new chats at the moment*
Hey I'm Elodie! I'm in high school and I love helping others! If you want to rant, cry, or just talk, I'd love to chat! If I'm not online, you can just leave me a message. I try my best to be online often but please be patient if I don't reply right away.
A little bit about me: I am in the band, I play the clarinet and also the guitar, I love music in general and art, specifically drawing and painting, reading is one of my favorite pastimes, and I'm learning French. I am in theatre at school and the local palladium. Over the years, I've played tennis, hockey, and figure skating. I am Catholic but will not mention it unless you want me to.
I am willing to talk about almost everything, please see the list below for what I will discuss. However, I have no experience helping members of the LGBTQ+ community but I wish you the best!Listener Twins:
As Salamu Alaikum
Success depends on the wish of ALLAH.
@Hashib22 is the best listener of 7 cups. @Hashib22 is the best here because he teaches people to be more independent and absorb all negativity which is the path of being wise. @Hashib22 spread his charm with his highly motivating words. The word "Charismatic Persona" suit @Hashib22 best. @Hashib22 is nonjudgmental and always give importance to other's opinion.
PLEASE READ FIRST:
I will not be taking chats pertaining to sexual matters- I feel that other listeners may be more equipped to handle chats of that nature. Alright. Now onto introductions below.
Heyyy! Good job for taking the first step to find help! I will try my very best to assist you, however if I find that the issues presented are in an area I am not too familiar with, I will do my best to find you someone else who can help you.
You can call me dancer, or Thalia- either one I'm ok with!
- If I'm not online, please shoot me a message and I'll try to get back to you asap :)
- If I'm online, and you've sent me a request but I'm not answering, it's probably because I am helping someone else at the moment.
- If you feel the wait is too long, please shoot me a message and we can arrange a time to chat.
**Dear members and guests, your time is precious and so is mine. I understand that some things can be tough to bring up and you may need a considerable amount of time to do so. So if there's no reply or any indication of activity when 5 minutes is up, I will end the live chat. However you can still continue to talk to me, and we can message back and forth. Thanks :)
Thanks for understanding. Your patience is greatly appreciated :)
If you see that my status is offline, please don't hesitate to contact me. We can still message back and forth. Seeing my status as offline also doesn't necessarily mean I'm offline. Sometimes I forget to switch it back on. Thanks everyone :)
