You can talk to anyone you trust. If you trust a teacher or a close friend then talk to them. If you feel comfortable talking to a family member about what ever is going on then talk to them. Or you could come on a site like ours, and be anonymous so no one will ever know it was you. You can talk to literally anyone you trust to keep your conversation confidential and anyone you feel comfortable talking to.

You can talk to ''us'' listeners. We will listen to your every complain, be your shoulder when you need to cry. We care about you members and will always do. And if not your second choice is your love ones. The people who you trust and can depend upon.

You can always connect with a Listener here at 7 Cups. You can put out a General Request - any Listener can accept you from there - or you can browse our Listeners to connect with a specific one and send them a Personal Request by pressing the green 'Chat Now' button.

You can talk about your problems to someone you really trust and feel comfortable with or you can talk to a specialist and that's completely normal , because the specialist's job is to hear your problems and help you to solve them with the knowledge that he has earned from college :)

I first recommend to talk to a friend. A good friend will always have your back and comfort you in time of need. But if you don't have a friend you trust or feel comfortable talking with about issues, thats ok too. There are so many options. You could try an adult, whether it be a parent, grandparent, teacher, or therapist. A trusted adult will always have your best interest. If all else fails 7 cups of tea will have your back :) Whatever you do, don't keep everything inside. There is always someone willing to listen.

Theres no particular person you should feel that you should be able to talk to. Its important to be able to talk to somebody who you trust, and cares about you. Somebody who is willing to help you and listen to . And of course, there is always 7 CUPS OF TEA! There are plenty of listeners available to listen to you and whatever problems you may be going through.

Anyone, who you think will listen to you, without passing a judgement. Preferably a person with whom you feel secure . Someone who will be there for you and will guide you in the right way. Someone who makes you feel good. And that someone can be anyone. It just depends on you.

There are lots of people around you that you can talk to about your problems. Some of these groups include friends, family, work colleges, teachers, therapists and finally all of us here of 7 Cups of Tea. Most of the time the people around you want nothing but the best for you and will do anything they can to help you.

Opening up about one's issues can be one of the most difficult things in the world. You don't want to look vulnerable, while at the same time you're unable to handle your feelings. It's best to confide in a family member or close friend, who can help you by listening to you without judging. If you don't have such a person, it's best to chat over a platform like 7 Cups of Tea, where trained listeners can help you gain some insight on what you need to do. And if all else fails, it's always best to pray. :-)

Problem can be shared to various people such as friends, family members or anyone who is anonymous. But,the most important thing is how comfortable you are to share your problems with someone who is close to you, for example some people are afraid to share their problems with family members so they seek the support of friends who are really understanding to them. However, for certain people who have an understanding and supportive family members, so sharing their problem with family members helps to reduce their emotional burden. Besides that, there are also other ways to talk about problems such talking to a person in a website which supports anxiety, depression or any other mental health related problems, but most importantly the website protects the anonymity of users, this actually helps a person to share problems without being afraid of judged as well as helps reduce the emotional burden by talking to someone.

Talking to someone is always important, based on my experience the listeners at 7 cups are great and they know how to make others feel better. Other times just talking to a close friend, family is always good also.

A responible adult can be very helpful in a time where you are struggling. But also trusted friends, teachers, family members and even listeners on 7 cups of tea!

Parents are always a good choice. They love us and the only thing they want for their children is to be happy. Maybe we can think that thy won't understand us, or that they'll get angry or something, but I can say they'll listen to you and they'll make their best to help you. Even if they don't get it, you'll feel better because you'll feel loved and listened, and sometimes it's what you need

You can talk to trusted friends, family members. If you're religious another option would be people in your congregation, like a pastor. You can also use the site to find active listeners who would like to hear what you have to say and be there for you.

Simply you can talk about it with your family, because I think it's very essentials for your family to know your conditions. If you live far away from your family, you can talk about it with a person older than you or a friend you trust the most. And, of course, you'll be always welcome to talk about it with me. Remember, sometimes you're the only one who knows yourself. :)

You can talk to anyone in teen support or go one on one for support on your problems. The listeners are genuinely here for you.

You can start with anyone around you that you feel comfortable speaking with; whether that be your family, close friends, or professionals like a doctor/psychologist/counsellor. Or you can even talk with a total stranger, like here at 7 cups of tea! The important thing is to let your problems out. Darkness thrives when things are bottled up tight inside your mind.

Someone you feel comfortable with. It is hard, sometimes, to open up to someone (be they strangers or someone you have known for a long time) because there is always that fear of judgement. But comfort is essential. If you feel easy around someone, and feel like you want to tell them your problems, then that is usually a good sign.

If you've exhausted all other options such as close friends, significant other, or family. You can try talking to a counselor or you can talk to any of us listeners! Its exactly what we're here for and we're always up to listen ~

There are infinite possibilities. There is, of course, 7 Cups of Tea, if it is something you want to keep confidential. But, for not so serious things, trusted friends are a good resource. Also, you might want to keep in mind someone with more life experience, if for instance, your problem is that you don't know what to do with your life. If your problem is, for example, you don't know if you are ready to have a baby, talk to a mother. The possibilities are infinite, actually. So much depends on how private you are, what type of information you are looking for, your age. and your station in life.

That depends on what you're talking about - but usually you can always talk to an adult who you respect or someone you can trust. Or, of course, any one of our Listeners will listen to what you have to say and help in anyway we can. If none of these are a suitable answer, or it's a leagal manner, you can always call 911. If it's a desperate situation, however, and you're feeling suicidal it's recommended to call 1 (262) 273-8422 if in the US. :)

If I am a member or a guest. I can speak to a qualified listener for helping me handle my issues. However, as a listener the best option is to seek out a mentor and share my concerns with him or her.
