"Listen to understand rather than listen to respond."***Leave me a message and I will get back to you so that we can set up a time to talk. I look forward to hearing from you!***Hey guys, my name is River! I am a soldier in a constant war, but I can say with certainty that I'm winning.
I'm an Aquarius sun-Scorpio moon (for those of you who don't know what that entails, it means I'm argumentative but also very open-minded!). I am also an ISTP-A and primarily a Type 8: The Challenger, though I'm not nearly as scary as that sounds.
I love to read about the human mind, random facts, mental illnesses and how to manage them. I also write pretty much anything. I draw well, too, but usually mess my drawings up when I try to add colour. I'm a huge fan of rock music; you'll find me dancing to Green Day or Marianas Trench at 4 am. I like to cook as well, and I make a killer salad. The trick is orange and lemon juice as a dressing (citrus yum). I want to go into experimental and/or forensic psychology and perhaps neuroscience or criminology! As you can see, I still have much thought to give it.
I watch Supernatural (“A wise man once told me, ‘family don’t end in blood.’ But it doesn’t start there either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them. Family’s there; for the good, bad, all of it. They got your back, even when it hurts.”), The Big Bang Theory (Bazinga!), and Criminal Minds (Hotch and Blake are my favourite).
I have Bipolar Disorder which is like an unwanted rollercoaster ride and Asperger's Syndrome, this means I'm a genius hah. I also have Synesthesia—basically means that I have some werid wiring in my brain and I connect certain things to other certain things instinctively—not as much a diagnosis as a superpower! This means that I feel the same physical sensations as other people do (mirror-touch), and I see people as colours (personality-colour). This being said, it might not sound so weird when I say that I like green, purple, and orange people!My Roles:Verified Listener - I have been verified by the 7Cups community based on quality active listening skills. Peer Support - I am trained to support listeners after an upsetting, stressful, or triggering chat.Discussion Leader - I host weekly discussions on different topics. Feel free to drop by!Safety Patrol Team - I help keep 7Cups a safe place for everyone.DJ team - I am a member of the DJ team.

Kenz is both an amazing listener and astounding friend! She is highly empathetic which shows in every aspect of her life, be that her listening, her frienships, or her relationships. She loves being overprotective of others. I'll let you in on a secret: she likes to think she's tough but I can vouch for the fact that she is a major softie. Icicle0212:
Van is hilarious and lighthearted, but is so incredibly caring that he surprises me sometimes with his endless wisdom. He's open-minded, and much more of a lover than a fighter! greenfox3456:
Benji is a close friend of mine; always thoughtful of others and very welcoming! He was one of the first people on 7cups who made me feel like part of the community, and I can never thank him enough, though I do try by giving him oreos and skittles. Sydney113:
SydnEy has a very positive and loving energy that follows her into whatever room she enters. She's very lovable and the kindest person I have ever met! I don't even feel that bad when she steals my chips.
~ And a quick shoutout to my mentors @hopedreamlove and @24Help1! ~***Feel free to text me about anything, I can hold a conversation pretty well (especially if it's about shrimp)***

English isn't my first language, and I'm not really good at English, so I have some grammar mistakes and a little bit meaning mistakes.

I am diagnosed with Depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), so I have direct experiences about those situation. In fact, I'm not good at relationship, for I am diagnosed with ASD, so I have some communication barriers. I had self-harmed in 2016-2017, so I can help you with how to cope with this problem. Otherwise, I am suffering with depression, so I am finding some coping methods. Also, my mum is diagnosed with Schizophrenia and Bipolar, so I know a little bit knowledge about it.

If you read to here, I am so appreciate your attention
Hello everyone! I'm Busranur. I know how being alone makes you feel. I experienced, and I want to help people who go through some difficulties because you are not alone, I don't want you to feel like that. Maybe, I can't solve your problem, but if you write to me, you will get my support.
Since I'm not a trained psychologist, there are some problems that I can't help. These are; sexual problems, self-harm. I don't think I can be helpful on these problems and I don't want to waste your time. There are plenty of other listeners who can be more useful in these subjects.
About me: Hi! My name is Dan; I am a 7cups.com Adult Teen Listner (ATL). I have been on 7cups.com for over four years. I am also a trained crisis counselor, so when I say I have heard it all, I have listened to it all. There is nothing too big or too little for me to handle. I have lots of resources that I can give you. You will never be judged by me no matter what is going on. We all human, so that means that we all have struggles and issues, we can't handle alone. Projects I am involved in Welcoming Team, Peer-Support, Room supporter for disability, 35+, and family and caregiver support. I am a listener coach and I am a quality mentor. Please note that due to the number of projects I am now involved in, I will am not taking new one-on-one chats at the moment with the exceptions to mentees.
Life and it's complexity bring us here and now.
Emotions that followed help us to figuring out what's happening with chain of logic words. Sometimes, make it clear enough to see what we care the most through how we react to those feelings.
I have direct live experiences with anxiety and depression, bipolar disorder and still on medication for at least two years ahead.
It's so challenging for me but i think i already pass another downest period. Now, i do change a lot, to love myself, live moment to moment, untill i get my energy back to do routine, school, and other activities as balanced human being
I made sure that I was ready to provide support before reaching you in the chatroomPlease make appoinment with me for intense listening supporthttps://bestbraveheart57.youcanbook.me
Remember, dear, i can't guarantee my existance and my role here as i still trying hard to integrating my values with my motion and motivation, but talking with you is more than enough to raising up my own faith both direct-indirectly
