Have you ever done something for someone and it ended up being the best present to yourself?
Recently I began volunteering as a Listener with 7 Cups of Tea, a community of thousands dedicated to improving Mental Health around the world, one anonymous chat at a time. On the site you'll find a plethora of resources including a guided "Growth Path" with tasks that make you think, forums, group chats, one-on-one chat sessions with your own Listener that is volunteering to man the chat (available 24 hours / 7 days a week). Make friends around the world. It magic and its free.
7 Cups is perfect for those that feel they need to chat with someone but your resources are tight. I stumbled upon them and was invited to become a Listener. Helping others on their life journey allows me to pay-it-forward while it hones my listening skills. I love it.
Feel free to come try it. All you have to have is the need to chat privately with someone who will lend you an ear. The Listeners have no idea who you are and cannot ID or track where you're from. Here's the link: https://www.7cups.com/19598550. They are on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/7CupsOfTea.
To strong mental health!
