I am honored to be a listener here at 7 cups of tea. I'm born and raised in So Cal. In the past, I have struggled with depression and went through many not so good things, and other various issues. However, I'm fortunate enough that I have been able to come to terms with most of it and embrace it, and in turn, I'm healing and learning to live, and I want you to start living, because you are that important. Life is short. I am blunt and honest by nature, so if I come off as offensive or hurtful, that is not my intent, and I hope you will forgive me. I'll be on here as often as I can, so please do not hesitate to shoot me a message at any time. I cannot promise you that everything will be fine and dandy (I myself don't know), but please know that I am not going anywhere and always up to talk, about anything and everything.
Also. "Love what you have before life teaches you to love what you've lost".
Note: I also happen to be a guy. Please Read: This is a place where to have a conversation, polite and respectful, and respect goes both ways. Think of it you're at a party with a friend, you talk, you go back and forth with the conversation. At the party with this friend, you do NOT pull out a 24 pages printout with what you have to say, do you? So, DO NOT do that to me. It shows that you're not respectful and you're just jumping from listener to listener searching for someone who validates what's already in your mind, or you're looking to cause trouble. Either way, you and I are not a good match, please move onto a new different listener. (Shout out to CreativeLife for this, as it sometimes is an issue for me and other listeners as well).
Also, one last thing. Please note, I do not take personal requests. If you'd like to chat with me please feel free to message me directly and I'll respond as soon as I can :).
I have been in this world for close to 4 decades and gotten through schooling and university, and now have a nice job and a healthy circle of family and friends. I love communicating with people around me. No human is meant to be an island. We are meant to interact with the lives around us, while spreading joy and positivity. I believe Humanity is meant to grow together as one harmonious symphony.
I love listening to people's stories, watching movies, reading biographies and thrillers, dabbling a bit in philosophy and spirituality, and having a great meal on a peaceful weekend afternoon.
I am glad I found 7 Cups and I hope to give to others a bit of my time especially if it can make a difference in their lives.
Hey! If you need someone to talk to, I'd love to hear what's going on. No matter what you're dealing with, even if you just need to vent, I'd be happy to listen. I'm certainly a night owl so I'm usually fine with late-night chats.I do not take long-term support. You're free to message me again every now and again, but I have no set schedule so if you're looking for a more stable setup, there are plenty of great listeners who do offer long-term support and would be happy to help you with that!Since anxiety/panic attacks/OCD/social anxiety are my main topics, I also might find you a different listener if you're struggling with something I have little to no experience in, such as addictions or relationship stress. I do not take any chats on eating disorders, self harm or sexual subject matter.Remember, if you are suicidal and/or having an emergency, I or another listener will direct you to a site for that specifically instead. 7cups is not a suicide/crisis hotline, nor for medical emergencies and we cannot offer professional help for you in that case. Any obvious trolling will only be met with a block on my end, so please use common sense and be respectful ^-^
