Just use your own personal experience, and try to put yourself in the other persons shoes.

Discovering online social services such as the Listener program at 7 Cups is a great way to engage with people. As you discover your own skills, talents and abilities try to think of ways to share these with others online.

Just be there for them, let them know that you understand how they feel, and can relate to them in some way.

All you have to do is be there for them. When they need someone to talk to, be that person. Tell them they are not alone. Tell them they have you as their friend even when you just met each other.

Talk to them and listen to them. Actually CARE about what they say, don't just try to fill a quota

There are lots of ways, from participating in these forums or listening to people in need here on 7cupsoftea (of course), to participating in other forums or helplines/webchats, befriending people who need someone to talk to, signing petitions to change the way things are done, and taking part in charity fundraisers, and discussions. You can help raise awareness of certain services or causes by writing or creating art about them. The list is long. If you ask me, this is a very good place to start. :)

Just be there for them. Talk to them when they need it, let them vent to you, get any negative thing bothering them off their chest. Just talk and be there for them. And don't leave them, because a lot of people do that and the other person learns not to trust others and doesn't be very open to anyone anymore. In my opinion and experience.

it's not fully assured of my very certain help may help others, however, i may only help others as best as i can, if not, i can point out other listeners who may help more than i can, for my words are not always correct to them, so in this case, others may help

By choosing areas that you specialise in and be empathetic to those in a time of need, they will appreciate it a lot.

Just be there for them, empathise with them. Chat to them. Be nice! You can't fix something for someone straight away, but you can set them on the right track.

You can start by becoming a member in 7 cups of tea and taking the test to become an active listener. That way you can help and talk to people online who are in need of your help.

Well for 7 Cups of Tea, you go through a little course to show you what's the best way to help others, along with a quiz.

7 Cups of Tea is a great starting point. Helping talk with people through their troubling times is a very noble thing and it does make a difference. There are many other ways to help people too, however it depends on what kind of help you want to provide. Use a search engine to find out other ways you can make a difference.

When it comes to people online, if someone needs a friend to listen to them then I can lend a supportative, compassionate ear. I can actively listen to their worries and fears and even help celebrate in their achievements and triumphs. You can be a good friend online just by taking the time to conversate with someone.

I can listen to them as I am very patient, give good advice and make them feel safe and comfortable talking to me. I will also help find support in their local area that helps with their particular problems. For example I helped someone who was having trouble at home and helped them get the form to go on the housing register and I help with all kind of things. I am experienced in bullying, mental health, anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, family issues and breakups so I can help most people. I aim to give people the help and support I never had.

By listening and being there. Often people just feel that they are being misunderstood and the more you pay attention and give positive feedback the better one feels. Even slightly

By becoming a Listener, here on 7cups, of course! Being a Listener gives you the ability to help people from all walks of life, and from all over the world. It is a compassionate, stigma free community of like-minded folks who are here to help and support one another.

Listen to them intently and patiently before jumping to respond. The more information you have the better you will be able to help them.
