*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**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 struggles 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 the strong and amazing person you are. 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 bravest 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. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me? Feel free to send me a message at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

-- Currently on a break from chats--Heya everyone!!*drum rolls*Who am I?Well person reading this, I’m Yendi! (yes, I promise it is). I might not have a lot of experience with everything but the least I could try to do is give you a space to vent, a comfy, safe space. Sometimes all we need is to know someone is listening, hearing what you do have to say, lend a shoulder or ears when needs be, right? That is what I can try to provide for you. We can have chats about anything your heart desires and I’ll try to keep up along with you.I’m an open-minded person so you don’t have to worry about what is said when you have a chat with me! Also, I am open to talking about any topics that you might be worried about talking about.Little about me: I love love to read books, mostly crime novels/psychological thrillers so if you have any to recommend, you can pm away as well. I’m open to listening to any kind of music since I don’t have a specific genre that I like. I know what’s it like to deal with chronic pain since I go through it so I know what’s it like to be in pain and although every pain is different with each person, if you feel frustrated and want to scream, you can scream in my pm’s.Sidenote: I am around the site randomly throughout the day, so you can pm me anytime! However, due to health issues, my response time can be unpredictable and because of it, I might not always remember to message right away but if you pm me once and I haven’t responded within a day, you can pm me again, just for me to remember <3
UNFORTUNATELY I AM CURRENTLY NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW MEMBERS.
Hi, you! :)
Yes, you! Welcome to 7cups of tea and my profile! I am very glad that you are here! :) That's awesome!
In case you're wondering whether the two of us would be a good match, I want to share a few things about me.
I love helping others, I am a dog person, I love reading and art and long walks, and big cities, and getting immersed in a good movie or tv show. I have been through my fair share of things, and supported people around me with the issues they were facing.
I believe that every issue you are dealing with, no matter how big or small you may perceive it, is worth talking about and that's why it's so awesome that you're here right now. I also believe in the power of humor, at the same time I know it's not everyone's cup of tea ;) and that some topics are not funny whatsoever. I am not a professional psychologist, but over time on here I have learned my bits and pieces about active listening and offering emotional support, which I believe if done well, can go a long way. And offering emotional support through active listening is what I will try my best to do during our chats. It may not solve any issues you are facing, but maybe it will take the weight off your shoulders and make you feel less alone with it.
I am happy to listen about pretty much anything and everything! :) Naturally though, I am stronger/more experienced with some topics than others. My listening strengths lie in LGBTQ+, relationships (including yourself, your partner, friendships and families!), grief, work, struggling with beliefs and belonging, being a TCK, TCI, CCK, support in situations of being discriminated, and PMS/PMDD.
Currently my schedule is busy, so I currently take chats one person at a time, an hour each, and regulars weekly.
I am looking forward to meeting you and listening to you! :)Make sure to meet my awesome listener twins
| 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.
💭 It's not always easy to talk about ourselves, our problems or views, we never know how others will react to what we are saying. It's not easy to feel at ease when opening up to a stranger or finding someone who you feel comfortable with. I can't promise to be the right listener for you, I can't promise a fix to your problems, feelings and thoughts, I can't promise an answer to every question there is, but I can offer a friendly ear to talk to and to share your story with. We all have a story, we all express our feelings in a different way, we all react to things differently. No problem is small, if it affects you, you have every right to talk about it and feel the way you feel about it. You have every right to share it with someone and it's what I am here for - to listen.
☑️ Teen pregnancy/ Teen parenting friendly! Any related issues you can discuss with me, I won't judge and I might even understand it more than you think.
🕠 I'm online at least once a week, so if I'm not online, you can leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If I'm online message away and we can chat. If you would like to schedule a chat with me, you can simply message me and we will work out the best time that works for both of us!Thank you for reaching out to me! 💜
New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time. I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- July 11-14
- July 19-28
Otherwise, my normal availability will stand - I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slightly slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.
Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out!
You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me. I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you.
If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
"Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself."
"Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day."
Much love to all,
