Thank you for all your support regarding my post for World Suicide Prevention Day. Posting this just as a reminder. However, the link to this website is on the navigation bar of my blog.
Need someone to talk to?
7 Cups of Tea connects you with free listeners. Speak anonymously with a compassionate person when you need to talk to someone or enjoy anonymous chat.
Reminder: Most listeners are not counsellors, they are everyday people. As such, if you find you do not click with a listener or the listener is upsetting you, please do not feel under any obligation to continue your chat (and feel free to provide feedback and/or block any inappropriate listeners). It is also not for anyone at immediate risk of suicide. Please contact a hotline and, if you are in the US, you can also contact websites such as imalive.org.
Stay well, x.

*耳袋：Japanese Edo period anthology of oral tales collected by a samurai Negishi Yasumori. The title literally means “ear bag” from Negishi’s habit of carrying its manuscript in a sack. He collected over a thousand stories, and naturally, some were ghost stories. It is the source for the tales The Fortune Telling Doll and Kiku Mushi. [Source].

Sorry for those who have still yet to receive answers regarding their questions, but thank you for your continued support! I hope you are all doing very well and that your Japanese studies are going amazingly. =)
- A comment from someone talking to those who are suicidal.
It’s stuck with me ever since I first read it on this website [日本語で], in which the ‘main objective is to advise you on what you need in order to reshape your life’.
Most people on there have suicidal thoughts, and so some of it can be very sad to read.
But I think it’s really important for people to be given the various forms of support that others can offer. I was so happy to see that people are fighting and trying to overcome their suicidal and/or harmful tendencies.
And, better yet, that some of them were highly benefiting from it - despite the degrees of pain and/or trauma they have faced or even currently face in their lives.
If anyone wants to speak about anything that’s on their mind or just in general, please feel free to speak to me whenever you like! x.
I care for you, and I sincerely mean that. And I’m certainly not the only one who does, so you really don’t need to go through anything completely alone.
