"Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you" --Walt Whitman
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 ❤️ggffffffjfdfjdkjfksjdfksdjfdshfsdhfsdnbfbsdjfbnsdjbfjdsbnfjdnskjfjsdfksdfjjdsf
*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!

Hi! Welcome to my userpage :) you can call me Arc! I am a listener and am happy to listen to you if you need to let something out or talk about something. I love to see people doing their best and that includes you! If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Feel free to have a chat if I am online, there is no need to be shy (maximum one hour). If I can help that would make me happy too. To me there are no limits and nothing that you can't talk about. I am happy to take long term members!
However if your topic is about breakups or transgender in particular, I may not be the best listener for you and I would ask to find one more suited for that.

Sometimes the only person that can be your therapist is yourself
Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?' Brian Tracy
We cannot be someone else. We can only be the best version of ourselves and that is the best thing we can offer. But as we aspire and work hard, realise you are most perfect now in the present. You do not have to do something or to change- you are okay right now. It is a moment in time we will not get back so appreciate it dearly.
Keep close your loved ones and those who make you happy and remove those who bring no good to your life they do not belong there. It is key to good quality of life and you are worth that effort.

Recovering drug addict /alcoholic who has struggled with weight and sexual assault since I was very young. I have also dealt with hormonal issues my entire life so if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask. I am always happy to help and lend a listening ear. Happily married pansexual woman that tries to help others. Spiritual but not religious... I do not mind listening to sexual issues as long as they don't try to lead to "that type" of talk. I am extremely comfortable with LGBTQ+ issues being a member of that community myself.
~~I am generally set to away mode on here, however, I do lurk, take a chance to send me a message and I will get back to you!
~~~~ Greeting to you all. Although my time has been sporadic; please feel free to send me a message and I will return it as soon as possible. You can find me periodically in the support rooms and listener peer support rooms.~~~~~

Currently not taking member chats, please go to Browse Listeners to reach out to another listener♥Welcome to my profile - I am Evie. I love cats, coffee, nice sketchbooks and listening to music with my eyes closed. I know what's like to feel alone and need a non-judging ear to listen to your perspective and your struggles, we all deserve that space and sometimes isn't easy to take that step. It's good you decided to reach out, proud of you♥
I am glad you found me on "7 cups of tea". I hold a Masters in Counseling. I have two wonderful boys who have helped shape me. I personally believe that the "Terrible Two's" do not exist, sorry the "Terrible Teens Years" do. Importantly, I have real life experience in dealing with social issues. Remember that god did not create us to crumble. WE GOT THIS!
*I preferably take scheduled 1-1 chats about 3-4x a week, after 4:30pm-8pm, EST, Mon-Friday and weekends vary. In addition to this, I am also a Room Supporter, feel free to stop by and say Hello😊.
