Hello! I'm glad you've found 7 Cups of Tea. I am a trained, active listener and I am here to help. I wont lie to you to make you feel better, and I promise I wont say anything I don't mean. You are important, and whatever you need help with, or if you are just here to talk, I will be here right along with you.
-If I say I understand something, I do. I wont lie to you. I wont speak to you as if I know something i dont--if I tell someone I understand, its because I really and truly do.
-I'm here for anyone who asks. If I refuse a personal request, it is because I am chatting with people who need my undivided attention. Feel free to try and get back to me a few minutes later.
-I cannot give advice.
-And this is a question I am frequently asked: Yes, I am a person. I joined 7Cups first as a guest, then as a listener. I know how odd, how scary, how uncomfortable, or how helpful talking to a listener can be.
-I love many movies, books, tv shows, and plays (musicals as well). Feel free to talk to me about any such subject if you need to de stress.
-To anyone who wants to ask: Seven Cups is a therapy-esque site, created to help those who needed to speak to someone about an issue occuring in their lives.

| Teen Quality Mentor | Teen Transition Mentor |Active Listening 1 (Grading & Feedback)You can call me Amp!Greetings, I'm so glad that you've reached out for help. I know that life can seem like a complicated journey sometimes. During this time, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed, confused or frustrated. My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgemental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You don't have to feel you are alone on the journey.

Relax. Take a nice, deep, long breath... and just let it all out. there you go. It's going to be alright. just focus on this for now and let everything else go. You just survived 12 seconds, all you have to do now is take life 12 seconds at a time. and whenever you just feel like you can't even take that; that's why I'll always be here, to help you through every obstacle that seems too large to defeat About Me!!!Hey there beautiful people <3. I'm Angel XDfrom the day I joined 7 cups I have always wanted to create a little corner where everyone can just forget about everything in life that kind of sucks to just take a moment to breathe. no matter who you are and what your little amazing quirks are, I want to help be a backbone to those who need someone to just be THERE! I've been through a lot and personally, I didn't have anyone to help through that. I believe that everyone is amazing and has the ability to do great things and most people myself included doubt their selves. You don’t need to have certain characteristics to be special, and you certainly don’t need a specific look to be beautiful <3. I just wanted to create a little space here on 7 cups where you can feel safe, confident, and loved! I will always be there for you, I may not solve your problems but I'll be right there with you so we could pass that obstacle together! always remember that no matter what your problem is it's never too big or too small, we all go through things and they all are problems that do matter.If I'm online then please feel free to start a chat if I'm not, leave me a message and I'll reply to you as soon as I can😊! I'm here for you through whatever, whenever. I will stand by you no matter what ❤️ggffffffjfdfjdkjfksjdfksdjfdshfsdhfsdnbfbsdjfbnsdjbfjdsbnfjdnskjfjsdfksdfjjdsfFor Listeners!Want to get verified?

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.

Hi. I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups. I know it's so hard to face it all right now, but reaching out and seeking help really shows how brave you are to keep going. I'm a verified active listener and I'd like to support people struggling, or helping their loved ones coping with the problems listed below, plus psychosis and dissociative identity disorder (DID). I love music, art, photography, nature, food, learning foreign languages, clinical psychology and reading. I use "They/Them" pronouns.
I’m grateful for the hardships I’ve experienced and I would like to help you overcome yours. If I’m online, feel free to start a chat. If not, please send me a message so that we can set up a time to connect. I'd really appreciate you leaving me a rating or a review so that I could improve our listening experience. Looking forward to chatting with you!
