It's okay to rely on this site as a way of coping with how you are feeling. There are several methods that could make you feel better, keep looking or using those methods unless they are unhealthy. There is always going to be plenty of support for you over here and you know that we are here for you. If you ever feel that you are overwhelmed by your emotions I would remind you that there is professional help out there with qualified people to guide you and help you. Don't hesitate and look out for help when you need to. Or look for people to cheer you up. There's always people out there ready to give you a hand and lots of love. :-)

I think that 7 Cups can be the closest thing you can get to a truly understanding friend in some situation. Many listeners and members even become very good frinds and help each other through their obstacles. With nothing else to depend on, 7 Cups is a great community to lean on and in some sense, our purpose as listeners is to help the person we are listening to to feel comfortable and confident when talking about their issues.

Not really, you need help from people you know. Your closest friends or friend, for example. They really do help.

Its always good to have some sort of escape in hard times, but I would pick something that doesn't rely on the internet or electricity all the time. That way there's less of a chance you can't access it.

Yes, it is okay, however you should try some other method to 'bring you up' as well, because listeners aren't always available, and if the same thing is bringing you down, then for a more permanent solution, consulting with a professional would be great too

It is not the best possible way. you can't be depending on anything or anyone but yourself in order to have a healthy life. But nevertheless this site is a great support and if you can't make it by yourself you still can feel better knowing that 7cups is here to support you.

Of course. There is always somebody here who would love to share your company. Here at 7 cups of tea, you are allowed to vent as much as you like!

No, its better to depend on ourself first, learning to recognize the triggerring thoughts and coming up with a logical counter thought. Its just the matter of focus. Focusing on happy thoughts uplifts the mood.

This website is better than just trying to cope alone. But there's therapists as well, and they might be able to help more considering they're professionals. However some people aren't comfortable with coming to those. Honestly, it depends on your situation. The people on this website will always be there to listen and support you.

Well, As much as it helps you should always try new things to get you happy again... While this site is so awesome its important you don't always try to fix your problems with it. Like any great thing don't use it too much or it wont be as great.

It is ok to seek help here, we're happy to listen to you, but you should have other coping mechanisms just in case you had an internet cut or if you have company for example.

You can't always rely on other people. You need to sort things out yourself sometimes otherwise you nurture over-dependence on other people which is incredibly unhealthy.

Of course, but it should not be your only solution ; you should try to talk to specialists, or to distract yourself.

I personally think not, this is a great thing to depend on but not to soley depend on one thing, find other things and people that make you feel happy, branch out and explore your hobbies

I think it is definitely okay to want to talk to someone about your feelings when you're feeling down! However, if you are constantly or often feeling down, you should maybe go to a professional therapist! Having someone that listens to you can be helpful to a certain degree but if you being down is a serious problem a therapy might be a better long term solution because they can give you more professional advice on how to deal with your emotions! :)

It is great to have a positive support network, including through this website. However it's also important to seek further help if you're feeling worse.

I'm fairly new to this site but I do believe it is a great source to turn to when you're having a hard time. The thing is, this site is meant to provide us with a safe listening ear to vent to, and won't necessarily provide any solutions. While I feel this is a wonderful resource, I also strongly feel that you should have other systems of support to help you trough difficult times as well.

No, because the listeners on this site can only do so much as to help someone. Some of out rules I do not agree with, but we do have guidelines to follow. I would not say to depend on this site all the time.
