It is important to have someone to listen to you sometimes. Someone to truly listen to you–and not judge you and to not know your past history or hangups. Some people just need someone to listen to them, period, and not talk at all. It is important to have someone to listen back. I have been there myself!
With 7 Cups of Tea, listeners are trained in Active Listening. Some of the listeners are free, some charge a nominal fee for their service. Nominal from what I have seen is from .50 USD down to .003 USD per minute.
At present they are doing over 100 call and chat requests a day. They currently work with a number of organizations like NAMI, Active Minds, the International Bipolar Foundation and several others.
If you feel you have no one to talk to, here you are. Someone to listen to you, someone who will definitely hear what you have to say.
