I am a 37 year old single female. I have struggled with depression and anxiety most of my life. I have also struggled with addiction, self harm, bulimia, have lost my sweet daughter Who passed away at 16 months. I have multiple chronic illnesses and all of these things have taught me that we only have so much time on earth and I want to make the best of it. I've definitely been through my fair share of heart ache and pain and I can empathize with where you are coming from.
I enjoy writing, painting and horseback riding in my spare time. I'm an avid animal lover. I have 1 dog, 2 birds, 5 fish tanks and 2 horses. My horses names are Stardust and Starlight. They are both rescues. My dog is a certified service dog and a certified search and rescue dog. He is my companion and best friend. My family has just purchased a ranch where we will be retraining abused and neglected horses.
I also enjoy learning new languages and speak 7 languages fluently.

Hi there! My name is Julie and I'm so happy you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with breakups, relationship problems, bullying, low self-esteem, depression, alcohol addiction, anxiety, & self-harm. If I could just put a smile on just one person's face on here, I'll be happy knowing I made someone a bit happier and changed their perspective for the better. I never ever judge anyone, don't be afraid to tell me what's on your mind! I don't believe any issue is trivial, because in someone else's mind it could be the biggest issue in the world. I really do love talking to people and helping them work out issues and things that are bothering them. I hope to help guide people down the right path that's best for them and support them.

Remember - It is ALWAYS possible to change your outlook in life, whether it's with the help of a professional, or medication, or simply by changing your cognitive abilities and the way you think. I know it's not easy, but I'm telling you from personal experience that it is possible. I am so glad you decided to come here, that's a step in the right direction and I'm proud of you!

Hey there! I've spent a fair amount of time on 7 cups and would like to give back. I have been through a lot in my life and have come out for the better, even though it seemed nearly impossible. Some of these things are abuse, suicide, self harm, drug addiction, relationship issues, and attachment problems. I'm a very laid back guy who enjoys nature such as surfing and camping. I also at times like to sit back and watch Netflix or play video game. Hopefully I can help.
