Hey there! You can call me Ben) and just like you I found this site during times of severe emotional stress and it helped me feel better! Im here to listen to you, be a shoulder to lean on.. To help you. Feel free to reach out to me!
About me personally I'm 21 years old and a student of Uni. I have suffered physical and psychological abuse as a child and my early teens which has left me damaged. I've been shamed and neglected, rarely remember ever waking up with a smile on my face and yet I kept silent about it all for a long long time.. in social circles tried to fit in and be normal, be cool and be accepted.. it never worked out. Ive experienced failure and severe loneliness.. I've seen a lot of death and misery in my life since childhood and had a very poor support system to help me then, but despite it all I've always had an undying hope for the future!
This site and some of the people I have met here too are my ray of hope, keeping me going and helping me with my daily battle with depression! Reminding me that as long as i'm here, I have someone i can count on and to support me
Hopefully I can be that person for you as well) Learning to love yourself for who you are is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself!
I enjoy doing calisthenic/bodyweight workouts, volunteering, listening, writing and playing music. The guitar is my instrument of choice 👍
A former metalhead now with a liking for calmer music and a special love for Avicii songs))
I love doing research and sketching portraits as well
I take chats on Social anxiety, Relationships, Depression, College life, Bullying, Family stress and Healthy living but I'm willing to listen to anything you have to tell me with an open mind and heart! And I'll try my best to be helpful 😊
Looking forward to getting to know you! 😉

I'm Charlie and I'm trained, verified and experienced as an active listener for both adults and teens. I like to support people who are struggling with something. Also people who aren't struggling with anything. And people who aren't sure whether they're struggling or not.
The poem is said to be by Eihei Dōgen, a Japanese poet who wrote it around eight hundred years ago. I don't know why I like it. I just do. My photo is the moon shining on the sea. There's some darkness and some clouds there but the light of the moon shines on everything. I like this too.
If I'm online, please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline or busy, please feel free to send me a message so we can arrange a time to chat. No topic of conversation is off-limits for me, not even difficult and distressing topics.
Thank you for reading my profile.

Hello! I chose the picture of an apple because it represents to me growth and potential. The apple can grow to become the best apple it can be. My strengths lie in relationship/friendship problems and infidelity issues.
I'm a 28 year old who has always been told I'm a good listener and person to come to. People have come to me years after talking to them because they remembered I was someone to confide in. I like to think of myself as open minded, non judgmental, and compassionate. I try really hard to give unbiased, but honest advice while still being on your side. I love to help people and sometimes I say things that people need to hear even if they don't want to. My approach is supportive, yet helpful rather than tough love because I've always liked advice most when it was honest coming from a person who cared about my well being enough to be honest.Activities/Positions I am involved in include: Chatroom Mentor, Forum Mentor, Quality Ambassador, Peer Support, Chat Support help, Adult/Teen Listener, Teen Chatroom Mentor, Group Mod, Safety Patrol Team.
