1) My response times are slow. Even when I am working on making them faster, if you talk with me please note there will be delays. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
2) I help myself when I help you.3) Some issues with my Username:(3.1) 08/Auguest/2019: On this day, I found out that "ThankYouForLettingMeTryingToHelp" should be instead ThankYouForLettingMeTryToHelp. It seems first one is grammarly incorrect in English. I am sorry for my mistake. Thank you for pointing it out, @Nada and @DestroyingAngel .(3.2) 18/October/2019: On this day, a 7Cups Member told me this: "Your name is still incorrect. ThankYouForLettingMeTryingToHelp. We all know that if you are "trying" you are not doing. A man should not try his best, a man should do his best. Your name subconsciously sends a message that you will "try" which implies failure is the most likely outcome. ThankYouForLettingMeHelp would be much more appropriate and will send a positive message that you will help."(3.3) 14/November/2019: On this day, a 7Cups Member told me this: "Saying "trying to help" means you will do your best expecting nothing from those you encounter. The way your username is written seems perfect. To me it seems humble and that you know that not everyone can be helped."

Hey there! It's EmpatheticJem, but you can call me Jem. I am a verified listener here on 7 Cups of Tea. People often ask me why I am here, and why I give my time to total strangers. Honestly, I don't have to think about it. During my time on this beautiful planet, I have been through the mill - and I wish I were exaggerating! I am very honest and open about my past, hence the abundance of topics that I'm comfortable discussing. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression at the mere age of 16 - with the rising stress of GCSE exams. But back then I didn't know of stress! I feel so foolish now, but at least I've experienced most things and can use this to help those on this site.
I will say this now... Yes I have been diagnosed with BPD.
Please don't let this taint your view of me. I'm incredibly empathetic and understanding. I leave no room for negative judgement! Everyone deserves a chance at happiness. Why not let it be you? 💕
***I'm not taking any requests at this time***
My name is Katheryn. I'm a trained active listener, and I would love to listen and support you through the rough time you may be facing. I have a bachelor's degree in sociology and a master's degree in social work. My focus is on learning to accept and understand negative thoughts and feelings instead of giving them power. I also focus on living a life in accordance with our values. I know that many times in life, we can feel hopeless, worthless, or lost. I'm here to be your guide, your cheerleader, you're helping hand along the way. I know that sometimes it feels like life is scary and hard, but I'm here to help you realize your strengths and regain your sense of hope.
I believe that people are mostly good, caring people. I believe in the power of a hug or a kind word, and that life surprises us all, but those surprises don't have to be bad.
Hello! I’m Light, as in ‘a light that can guide you out of your darkness’.
I am open to talking about most issues(sexual issues excluded) and will do my best to help you feel better about yourself/your situation.
If there’s a green light, then I’m on the site and ready to chat! If there’s an orange light, I’m on the site, but I’m busy. You can still message me though and I’ll respond as soon as I can, but responses may be delayed depending on what I’m doing. If there’s a red light, then I’m currently not on the site, but you can still message me and I’ll get back to you when I can.
There’s a list of issues I can help with to the right. If there’s a yellow star, then I have personal experience with that issue.
*Note: I can speak some German, although I’m not fluent in it*
A little bit about me!
I’m a teen who loves cats, dragons, sharks, and snakes.
I enjoy drawing, writing, reading books, cooking, grilling, playing videogames, listening to music, and spending time outdoors.
I play basketball and play-fight with my sibling.
Legos are awesome, and I am a proud TFOL.
Thanks for connecting with me.
You might wanna take a deep breath and relax, you have to take life this way, that everything happens for a reason and life always want us to learn lessons in a hard way.
But you don't have to rush yourself and forget that God has bigger plans for you and there is some reason for you being here..
Special thanks to My mentors

My name is Mel and I am a verified intermediate listener that suffers from Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and a survivor of sexual abuse. I have dealt with years of severe depression cycles where I laid in bed for months at a time in pain and feeling lonely and hopeless and felt like a huge burden to my family. I have had many years of treatment and therapy and group therapy, thank goodness for some great peer support and my own therapist, I have worked through my issues, and I am finally in a great spot in my life, I want to give back to my community (mental health) in hopes of maybe helping someone by listening and offering my unconditional support. I have 3 handsome grown sons. I have been married for 25 years to a VERY patient and understanding man and I have a listener twin here at 7 cups, her name is Paula02. I decided to go back to college since my children are grown to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree. I want to become a Therapist or an Addiction Counselor. I am here to listen and support you judgement free through several issues; loneliness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, sexual assault, and bipolar disorder. My preferences are to talk to those suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, Sexual Assault victims and Domestic Violence Victims. I am sorry but I am not accepting long term members at this time. I DO NOT accepting chats on fetishes, sex, or sex fetishes and I DO NOT talk about sex. I am only taking new chats Mon-Thurs 9am to 12pm EST Please leave me a message and I will return ASAP when I have free time. Have a wonderful day <3<3 "Alot of people say that you can't just smile away depression. They are right, but some of it is actually wanting to get better and DOING something to get better. Take your meds, talk to someone or anyone, self-care like eating something delicious and brushing your teeth afterwards"-AnonymousMy accomplishments and duties at 7 cups:*verified listener*intermediate listener*7 cup intern graduate*bipolar support team*safety team*welcome team*bipolar room supporter*forum supporter*Peer support*I am NOT a trained medical professional and it is not within my limits and capabilities to provide advice, including medical advice.
