My worldview offers a systems perspective that values diverse clients and their struggles. I believe supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationships empower clients.

It's always good to have a place to retreat to when you feel down but in the long run, it's better to seek reassurance and help from other sources such as friends, family, counselors, etc. This site can only help so much, and when you feel like it's no longer truly doing its job and your sadness has developed into something greater, you should begin looking into other sources for help. We try out best to help and offer kind words, but being users on a website limits our abilities to help beyond our restraint.

I think it's a good thing to have a place to go to when you're down. Whether if it's friends, family or 7cups. At last it is important you feel better :)

no, make sure you have other support systems outside of online resources. sometimes its more effective in other methods

Yes. I always find myself seeking an outlet when I feel down or anxious, or I'm experiencing pronounced challenges. So, having a reliable, dependable support system, such as this site, that I can repeatedly access to reboot/rebound my mind and emotions is beyond beneficial to me.

Thats alright, we all need to vent to someone and if you feel good here then thats okay! After all we are here to help others, so you should free to come here whenever you need or feel like it. Have a great day!

It is ok the speak to someone on this sight when you are low but I would suggest you also talk to someone in real life about it like a parent so they can help also.

it's absolutely ok to depend on this site when you feel down. We all need some kind of emotional support when we're going through something difficult and 7cups provide that. I would recommend anyone who feel sad or need some emotional support during a a stressful time should take advantage of 7cups to help them get through it.

It's good to come to 7 Cups for support but it's just as great to gather personal strength as a backbone to end whatever distresses one may face.

I think that when we feel down, we need to look for love and support. If you find it here, it is totally ok. I think this is the reason why this site exist. help each other.

I think it's a great way to talk through your emotions and thoughts. If this is where you feel comfortable and supported to do so, so that you fell better and more confident, then it's fine. Ideally you'd also confide in a friend, family member / colleague, but this is not always possible for many reasons. The main thing is that you're getting help when you need it.

If this site helps you through whatever you’re going through then I promise you it’s perfectly fine.

I feel it is important to look all around for feedback and not just rely on one method. Human connection works. Meet a friend for coffee, make a phone call...explore all options.

It's great that you use this site. It helps with healthier coping mechanisms. And you get to talk to someone who can really relate to you.
June 6th, 2018 10:48pm
Yes, it is but don’t always rely on it, if you really need help try to see a therapist or a counselor, it could be something major but in short yes it is ok to rely on this site, the whole team cares for you :)
June 7th, 2018 12:04am
It's okay, don't worry! But it is important to create your own skills and your own tools to manage your problems. Take baby steps and you will find the way!
June 13th, 2018 2:23am
Having a safe coping mechanism is always okay. Don’t feel ashamed going to this website every time. Just make sure you have other outside coping mechanisms as well.
June 13th, 2018 4:56am
Yes. You can approach us whenever you feel low to talk it out. However, keep in mind that these sad feelings have prolonged 2 weeks or more and are hindering in your daily way of living then to see a therapist.

I think it is OK to use this site for occasions where you may not be able to seek professional help (such as weekends or closed-office hours) and for small minute things that may be fixed easily through chat, however more serious matters should be discussed with a professional.
June 13th, 2018 8:02am
Yes, it's ok to talk on this site when you feel down. sometimes you just need someone to talk to. 7 cups can provide a number of services
June 13th, 2018 1:01pm
It is totally normal to depend on something you are familiar with. People tend to go to places they feel safe.
June 13th, 2018 7:22pm
Yes and no. It’s good to have something to go to when you feel down, but you have to learn ways to make yourself become happy
June 14th, 2018 2:39am
Of course it is! We’re people you can really trust! Just always remember if you need help you are more than welcome to come to us.

It's okay to use this site as a resource, but if you are feeling down for weeks at a time, you should seek the help of a licensed professional.
June 21st, 2018 4:59pm
Yes it is okay as you can talk with listeners and receive advice hope this helps answer your question
June 22nd, 2018 10:54pm
Not alway best to seek help support in person too in person more moves forward but great site for it
June 24th, 2018 7:09pm
Use this site, or sites like this, for however long you feel you need it so long as it actually helps you. There's nothing wrong in that, that's what they're there for.
June 27th, 2018 5:55am
It is if it's helping you relieve yourself with stress, but you also need to have someone whom you can talk to. Communication is a key to any healthy relationships
June 27th, 2018 8:26am
7cups is here to help people when they struggling in life, and the fact that you feel like you can come here when you are feeling down is already a really positive step on your part, so good job!
June 28th, 2018 9:52am
it's okay but you should learn to face your own problems instead of feeling low abt them. there is no problem that your mind can't solve.
