Hi guys I am copvsthief247 and people also call me jet, Captain Jack or just Jack. My theory related to life is a bit different from others. I don't think life to be a bed of roses, it's a competitive world we live in and people have to work day and night to fight the world and claim what is rightfully there thing. It's also not just about competition, you will find a few people in life who will help you and will always be by your side without expecting anything in return. These people are our true friends and you should not lose them cause they will be the one's supporting you in ups and downs of your life.I don't want to specially mention anyone's name here saying him/her thank you because, each and everyone over here has been equally good to me and the love that all people have given me here is beyond words and I love all of you for that.Your life is shaped by the experiences you go through and that's what shapes your character and personality. You just need to figure out the uniqueness inside yourself and work on it so that one day the whole world knows you. You can achieve what you want to provided you don't stop chasing your dream till the very end. Be yourself be unique and don't let anyone tell you that you are less.
HELLO, I'm Era!I'm not taking any new member chats right now due to having a hectic schedule. My apologies! However, if we have talked before, feel free to message me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

I like to help others and like to be helped also. Created the following to help everyone please let me know if there is a web site that I should add as a resource:
- An Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
CBT resources - How CBT can help- Anxiety Worksheets- Cognitive distortions
- Health anxiety
DBT resources - psychcentral.com/lib/an-overview-of-dialectical-behavior-therapy/
- Coping with Flashbacks
- Feelings wheel
- Turning the mind
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?

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:
- Jan 21-Jan 24
- Feb 11-Feb 19
- Feb 21-Feb 22
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,
Currently unable to take any member chats
