- me when it starts getting cloudy: yeees
- me when it starts raining: yeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSS
I CANNOT STRESS HOW ACCURATE THIS IS.
A friend recently told me about 7cupsoftea.com and I figured I’d join it tonight because I really want to help others.
I passed the active listening course / test and was approved to be a listener on the website. I then started taking the other training courses to help me build my understanding and listening skills in order to better help others with their situation.. and to focus in on handling specific situations (such as depression, traumatic events, alcohol / substance abuse, managing emotions, and etc).
It’s really great because it puts all the focus on listening and helping others be heard instead of offering advice.. and it helps you to guide the person in need of help to their own solution.
However, my first chat was someone who didn’t want to talk, they just wanted my number and insisted upon it.. then became rather upset when I didn’t give it to them. So that was a pretty intense chat for someone new, but I’m glad I got through it and remained completely positive. (:
