Life can be messy. Sometimes you need a little support to make your way through it. I love to help guide people through their challenges & to find the beauty in our messes.

You can use 7 cups oftea to discuss your feelings and at the same time spend quite a time tuning into your feelings and just feeling them until they fade. Talking to someone here can help you gain a better perspective on your problems so it is easier to deal with. Also try looking for opportunities to keep making new friends

I often feel as if no one cares about how I feel, and all I want is for them to see that I'm sad and Lonley. Trying to get over that feeling is one of the hardest things in the world. However, when that little voice pops up in my head I talk back, I won't let it overtake me anymore. I tell myself that there are people who love me and if they knew I felt this was they wouldn't leave me alone. The reason I started talking back to that voice is because I remembered who I am and how great every person is, because we are individuals whose voices can move nations. We are important because everyday we make a difference in someone else's life. I tell that little voice that I care, and people that I will meet in the future care. There are people out there who need me to care for them and show them that someone loves them. Finding yourself is one of the longest hardest journies we all have to make, but first you have to remember that you are bigger than what you think, you can change the world.

You find your strength from within yourself, in other words something you're passionate about and expresses it. You will feel like you have something to be confident in and that you don't need anyone else. For example, writing, painting, singing, etc.

Hello, i will write from my experience about from where I get strength to overcome my pain when it seems that no one cares. Well, I am an artist, so expressing my self is a important thing to me. When I feel any kind of pain or sadness, and no one wants to or can't listen to me, or don't care, I try to show my pain in a drawings. I draw what i feel. And in the end, when I see my pain in a object, it feels like pain was lefted in a drawing whit every stroke of my pencil and I do feel better, because drawing is my way of resting.

From within yourself. Self-confidence and belief go a long way! It "seems" no one cares, but you will never know unless you try actively, right? Just mount up a bit of courage inside, fight off all the negativity, and you will get better by the day.

True strength is from your inner self. Only YOU can truly tell yourself how amazing you are, and how you will overcome this.

You should sleep! Sleep helps deal a lot of issues and emotions. Drink a lot of water. Spend more time doing things that help your mind getting busy. Love and care for yourself, when you will start caring for yourself, people will understand your worth!

I often find my strength in the fact few others seem to be worried in it, not realising how serious the issue is. I delve deep down to find strength in myself that i can use here and now...

It's really difficult situation in life when no one cares for you and no one acknowledging your pain. But sometimes we has to care for ourselves no matter what. Self care is most important thing to deal with pain. Rather than anyone else in life we must ackowledge our feelings and our emotions. You should find ways to release your pain by crying it out, writing journals or expressing it with Art or whatever is comfortable for you. Do it on your own pace. Self compassion works best. You can try self compassion meditations as well. Involve youself in any activity in a day. And in life you should try to connect with new people who will care for you, may be you will get good connections on 7cups itself.

You can listen to your favourite music, do some meditation or yoga, or maybe a bit of martial arts, what about painting or playing a musical instrument? It is important that you develop your self worth, then you will be stronger next time you feel vulnerable. Maybe make yourself a mindfullness checklist and put it on your kitchen wall, something like. 1. Read a book 2. Take 5 deep breaths 3. Bake a cake 4. Go for a walk 5. Watch my favourite tv programme. When you have done one or all of these things, you could tick them off on your list, then you will feel like you have achieved something, and you can read it back to yourself when you are feeling down.
