I strongly believe in psychology - as a psychology student - I view our Psyches/psychology to be a key for all success in life. I believe that soulfully, we are all butterflies - we suffer from trials and misfortunes, and bit by bit, we are purified by our sufferings, until we are able to soar like a great butterfly. But the greatest thing amongst the chaos of this world, is that we can unite in the face of darkness in order to grasp the light. Conquer your life today, and reach out whenever needed! 🦋I am a verified, trained active listener on several leadership teams here. I believe in the power of listening and motivating one another for success. Apart from my work here, I am a bookworm, poet, and lifelong learner. 🦋 My journey at 7 Cups started as an intern. I graduated my internship here with honors, and put together a project on Social Media Depression (link found at the end of my bio). 🦋 I am the Community Mentor Leader for the Veterans and Military Support Community. Further, as a Forum Team member I have attained several roles on the Forum Team, alongside being a Project Agent for the Forum Team Engagement Track. I also enjoy being a Room Supporter, Discussion Writer, and Feed Team member. 🦋 I have not been raised or born in Pakistan and am only just recently adjusting to the culture/norms associated with the country. My first and primary language is English and I am not fluent enough in Urdu. Kindly respect that. 🦋If you are interested in learning more about the Veterans Community and the Honors project, discussed above, please click the links below. Thank you!

Hello~ You may call me Abbi. I am a listener on 7 Cups and I'd like to help if I may. I'm a good listener in the real world, so I hope I can do well here as well. Also, I'd really appreciate the feedback on my ability to be a listener. Constructive criticism never hurt anyone who wishes to improve. But about me: I am a huge anime fan. In a casual conversation, I don't mind discussing good animes. :) I also enjoy video games and books. When I am not here, I am a waitress, and my opening line here is so cheesy because of it. xD Anyway, it's a pleasure to be here and to help anyone who requests my assistance. May you all feel better, stay wonderful, or both~ :)

  Not taking new chats!!         Piney is not available as she is off living her life. Many apologies to all the people who I have talked to and since have stopped. I know how rude and selfish that is of me, but it's really for the best of everyone involved. As always, my love goes out to everyone.         Stand firm, and you will win life.

7 cups intern graduate, verified listener, member of feed team and welcoming committee, forum supporter, peer supporter! Compassionate. Introvert. Sapiosexual.  I believe that GOODNESS is not just an outcome, it is a PROCESS!!!  To all my member speakers I'd say, "The important thing in life is to believe that while you are alive, it's never too late!" Just have a little faith!!  As a listener, I follow this quote from To Kill a Mocking Bird: "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."  Also, I wouldn't forget to express regard, gratitude & respect to some of my initial speakers I have had memorable listening experiences with. They are Metalhead girl, hypnoticpoison & Brokensmiles.  -I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity-

Hey, welcome to my Listener profile. Before continuing on I would like for you to take a minute to close your eyes, and take a deep breath. You may not be feeling great right now, and that's what's brought you here today to 7Cups, and to my Listener profile. First I'm going to give you some generic information about myself, who I am, and why I'm here, so you can get to know me. Then I'll give you the different kinds of chats I may be able to help with. After that I will talk about my own personal experiences, in order to give credit to the chats listed above and help you get to know me a little better in a way that wil hopefully make you feel more comfortable sharing and talking to me. Although if not, that is completely okay too, as not every Listener-Member pairing will work, and I want you to have the best possible experience here at 7 Cups. Lastly, I'll talk about more fun things such as my hobbies, interests and things of less consequence.Basic InformationCurrently awaiting a username change.Hello, my name is Nate, I am a 17 year old autistic, transgender man from Scotland. I joined 7 Cups of Tea in July 2016, but have been inactive since about January-Feburary this year. This was because of the personal issues I was facing including gender doubt, family issues, the transition from school to university, compassion fatigue, andmy own mental health. I started listening when I thought I was a woman, but have since came out as transgender . My pronouns are he/him. :)After my long break, I am hopefully here again to stay.I've been through a lot of things in my life, that have not been pleasant and have even changed me for the worst. I joined 7 Cups as a way to utilise these experiences in a way that can create a positive impact on the world. I thought that my knowledge and experiences, good and bad, could hopefully be something that could help others understand their situations, their own thoughts and identities, and ulitimately, even prevent people having to struggle and suffer in some of these ways. I am back here today, as someone who has even more stories to share and who is hopefully more mature and thoughtful, because I still hold these same valuesChats (a non-exhaustive list, as I'll always be prepared to help someone, no matter their situation):Family issuesAnxiety and panicLow mood and depressionMood swingsTrauma: r*pe, and sexual assaultTrauma: Growing up in a violent/abusive householdBorderline Personality DisorderNeurodiversity, and the issues surrounding usLGBT+ Self-harmMy ExperiencesI have experienced issues relating to all of the above chats. I'm going to keept this part as short and non-descriptive as possible in order to avoid triggering readers. If you would like me to change any part of it because you find it triggering, don't hesitate to message me. :)I've had a lot of issues with my family, for many reasons. My parents were never the best people, my dad was always violent and my mother manipulative. I lived with my sister for almost 2 years because of this, but she and her partner also became cruel. My LGBT+ identities, and neurodiversity have also played a role in my family struggles. Intermeditate family arguments and such have also left most of my family estranged for most of my life.I have also struggled a lot with anxiety, and mood. As a neurodivergent person, the world is inherently anxiety-provoking, and I experience anxiety almost constantly, more so in new enviroments, situtations, or in social situtations. I also struggle with low mood, and mood swings/emotional impermenace, relating to my personality disorder. I've had to work really hard to get to where I am today, and I hope I can help other people to cope with their symptoms and improve their quality of life.I'm a trauma survivor, as previously mentioned I grew up around violent and manipulative parents, and have been in more than one abusive situtation. I am also a partner rape survivor. Trauma is likely the reason that I have BPD, which I am currently in the process of diagnosis with. Borderline Personality Disorder, and other Cluster-B disorders, is a wholely misunderstood illness, and if you'd like to learn more about it, feel free to drop me a message just to chat. Because of BPD I have struggle with intense emotional mood swings, attatchment issues, impulsive behaviour, dissociation, a belief that I am truly evil, worst of all I've been... completely anti-recovery (and that wasn't a choice. I wanted to want to get better.), and so much more. I want any other borderlines out there to know that you are not inherently evil, or abusive, or Bad. Your illness is valid. You are worth it. None of it is fair, and it's scary, and I'm sorry. But we got this. Together? Maybe?As previously mentioned, I'm neurodivergent- Autistic. If you want to have a rant about Autism $peaks, or infodump about your new special interest, or have a compassionate ear for an ableist experience you've had- I'm your man. :)I've also already said I'm a transgender man, I'm also pan-ace (panromantic, asexual). So I've.... got a fair share of experiences with LGBT+-phobia, and many other issues. I've battled particularly with internalised transphobia, a phenomenon I've dubbed Doubt Dysphoria, and unaccepting family. If you're experiencing gender doubt, erasure, trans/ace/biphobia within or outwith the community, any of the issues faced above, any other LGBT issues, or just want a friendly LGBT+ person to talk to about anything, I would feel honoured to help you with anything as best as I can.Self-harm sucks. I first started self-harming when I was 11 years old, and sometimes still struggle with it to this day. If you need to vent, help with creating or performing healthy coping mechanisms, or just distracted, you can always send me a message.I've also struggled with stress, chronic pain (eye pain, carpal tunnel syndrome), and bullying.With all of that out the way, I hope you feel more comfortable and at ease with talking to someone who's been through issues that may mirror issues you've faced or are facing yourself, and now...The Not-So Heavy StuffSo I'm a 17 year old boy, and I really like Disney movies, anime, and cartoons. I like reading a lot, and writing although I'm in a permenant state of writer's block.I'm incredibly enthusiastic about Lush bath bombs.I collect Monster High dolls.The movie Trainspotting, and it's sequel T2 Trainspotting, is my favouritve thing of all time. I have both the Choose Life monolouges memorised.ASK ME ABOUT SHARKS.The highest level qualification I did in high school was Advanced Higher Drama (which is like Year 1 at uni here), and I got an A even though I can't act. I did my dissertation on minorities in theatre.I'm currently studying English Studies and Psychology at university, and I hope to work with neurodivergent children, as a teacher or in some other form.I have 7 cats. Latest Special Interest: 'I Love You Philip Morris'

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  Coping skills -  Alphabet of Stress Management and Coping Skills -  Adult Pleasant Activities -  Adult Pleasant Events -  99 Coping Skills  Books -  5 love languages and then discuss it-  Mindfulness for borderline personality disorder  Contacts -  Cancer-  Cahoots-  Doctor Reviews-  Doctor Specialists-  Acupuncture-  Chiropractor-  Dermatologists-  ENT – Ear, Nose, Throat-  Find A Hospital-  Find A Physician-  Find top rated doctor in my area-  GI - gastroenterology-  Gynecologists-  Doctor search-  What to expect from visit-  Hospital Reviews-  How To Find A Doctor That Accepts My Insurance-  How To Search For Doctors That Accept Medicaid-  Massage-  OBGYNs-  Ophthalmologist and Optometrists: Similarities and Differences-  Types of Doctors-  Urgent Care-  Find a Trusted Mental Health Treatment Center for You-  Hourglass-  Mission-  NAMI-  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – 800-273-8255/Text 741741 (Text Start)-  Pleasant activities list-  Couples-  Find a therapist-  Open Source Counseling-  Optometrist-  Psychologytoday-  Types of Therapists-  List of suicide crisis lines-  befrienders.org - helps you find helplines by country-  imalive.org - an online crisis chat service, for anyone anywhere in the world.-  Psych Central Common Hotline Phone Numbers-  suicide.org - List of suicide helplines-  suicidestop.com - helps you find online chat, emergency numbers and crisis hotlines for many different countries in the world-  Warmline-  White Bird-  WomanSpace  Self-help guides -  7cups  Other Links -  Abortion-  Advice for Teens-  Alcohol-  Anger and Aggression-  Anxiety-  Bible Study-  Breathing Exercises And Techniques -  Detox Local-  Exercises for Relaxation-  Problems-  Problems: Causes, Tests, and Treatments-  Coping with Depression-  Crisis hotlines the recovery group-  Depression - A majority of people experience depression at least once during their lifetime, but they may or may not be aware of it. 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?
