It is always ok to come and talk to us, but to always depend on it is not recommended. We are here to help you on your success journey.

Everybody is different. We all have different ways of coping. If you've found your own way, good on you. If you prefer to depend on others via 7 Cups then that's alright too! Whatever works to keep you smiling.

I believe so. Not a lot of people understand you, or want to "deal" with your problems and don't want to listen. Here no one will judge you, and everyone will try to help you. So it's okay to depend on this site, not everyone wants to understand people. :)

You shouldn't completely depend on this site, but it's not the worst thing to depend on. Try to open up to a family member, close friend or significant other. If you don't feel like you can, this site is an amazing resource that you can use as much as you may need.

Isn't this the purpose of the website? To provide that immediate emotional support when down. I personally think it is perfectly okay to depend on this website when feeling down, however, it is always better to depend on yourself in the long run.

While not allowed to give advice this site can be trustful and depended on by many. Though many come seeking for answers, listeners are only allowed to provide suggestions. Advices can be give with a faithful mind, but can often get wrong intentions. This site is dependable on this when you ever feel down. While we might not be able to contribute an answer,-we are more than willing to listen and to make you feel better.

If you broke your leg, would you only wear your cast sometimes? If you had to use crutches to walk, would you only use them for a couple steps then throw them away? Why shouldn't you rely on this site, this community, this family, when you need it?

Absolutely, 7 cups is a place where you can vent about your feelings without fear of being judged. 7 cups can help you out with anything you might be dealing with. The entire community is here to cheer you up and help you out.

Well, 7cups is a site meant for people like you, that have problems; so you'll have a safe place to vent. However, I don't think it's healthy for you to be completely dependent. I personally think it is fine to talk to someone when you feel down, but some things you need to try and work out by yourself. It's okay if you're not ready to do this right now, it might take time :) Contact me whenever you want sweetie

You should not always depend of 7 Cups every single time you feel down, having a "go-to" person to talk with whenever something happens is also good.

No- you shouldn't be dependent on a site to make you happy. You need to be more self dependent or find a way of managing your emotions. There is a book called Dummies: How to manage your emotions. It has helped some people.

Yes, sometimes it helps to know someone else is listening. And there are many people on this site that are willing to listen to any problems you have. So yes it is okay.

Yes of course. On 7 cups of tea we have listeners that are always here to help you with anything whenever you are feeling down or just need someone to talk too.

No. What you feel might need a professional help. What we provide here is caring friendly support and it has mild range of problems.

I believe that it is always okay to reach out for support when you need it, either from this site or another means of support. Some people may think that relying so much on a website for support isn't good but it is whatever helps you. Maybe talk to your listeners about how you can cope during difficult periods if you can't get onto 7 cups.

Not always. This site is great, of course. But you should also include other people in your life who you feel understand you . You can't live in a screen all the time.

Of course! Seven Cups and other sites with support chats are here to help you. It is a coping mechanism, you know what is also a coping mechanism, cutting. As cutting gives relief so does Seven Cups. But Seven Cups isn't self-destructive. It's okay to feel down, depressed and coming forth is a huge step. :)

Yes, it doesn't make you weak or pathetic if that's what you're thinking. Wanting someone to listen to you is a very normal thing and this website is just here to make that easier for you. It's a totally okay way to feel.

If it is every day I do not think that this is the site. I think they would need to seek professional help.

As much as 7cups is a really good site for mental support, relying on this site all the time can be a little unhealthy. 7cups set the base for finding a support system, (listeners, other members on the forums) but in the long run it will be best that you find your own in your real life.

It's ok to have a slight dependence on the site when in need of it, but the most important thing is to practice your sword on a true battlefield, not a training arena.

It's ok to some limit if you can't talk to anyone about your worries there will always be a listener to hear but I don't want to say be defendant 100% on it because you can't always live on social media you better make a real life for yourself where you communicate,love,live, and share things with people & it would be great if you manage between both of the website & your real life

It's perfectly fine to ask for help, and it's perfectly fine to feel down and sad, and so yes, you can depend on this site, but eventually you need to depend on yourself too to feel better. Until you feel better come to this site as much as you want. It'll get better I promise 🌸🌟
