and MAYBE along the way i can help you out somehow :)
I am Misty. I am a trained and verified active adult and teen listener, and quality mentor leader, chatroom and forum mentor and community mentor leader and am glad you found me on 7 cups of Tea. **** ~ ***** * ***** ~ *****I am happy to listen to you on many topics. I have experience of lots of different areas - anxiety, depression, bi-polar and mental illness, families and relationships, love, school, college or work related problems, financial stress, healthy living, food, diets, eating disorders, I can also offer support for chronic pain, illness and disabilities. I am part of both the adult and the teen listening team, (and yes I can still remember being a teen lol) and I also offer long term support to those that I can and who are in need.(I am often asked about my age and how I can have experience of all these topics. Well, if you can keep a secret .... I am a 'mature' lady with two grown up children!)If I am not online then you are welcome to leave me a message - but please tell me what you want to talk about so we can get off to a flying start. I will get back to you when I am next able, but please bear in mind that I get a lot of messages and I will reply to the most urgent first so if you just say hi, do you really just want a hi back?At weekends my response will be slower as that is usually my time off from 7Cups,
and I may not respond to new requests till Monday.
I hope you understand that. We all need time for ourselves to recharge our batteries and relax. ONE STEP AT A TIME"We all have different size footsteps that we leave behind on our journey through life.
Sometimes we can change the size of our footsteps, the imprint, the impact, the direction.
Sometimes our footsteps land on rock and they do not show, or they land on sand and stay for a while,
Other times they get washed away by massive oceans or powerful waves.
But each and every footstep is important in so many ways.
Ways that we may not even know about.Watch your step, think about your steps, plan your next step, and the rest will follow." Listening ... one step at a time
Footsteps in the sand,
Or footsteps in the snow.
We all have the ability
To choose the way we go.
Will we turn left
Or will we turn right . .

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.

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
