"​To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless."
​-Gilbert K. Chesterton


Hi there! My name is Roo, and welcome to my profile!

For members: 

I am so glad that you've decided to reach out and talk about whatever it is that is on your mind! I know how scary and intimidating it can seem sometimes, but just know that I am here to provide a safe, positive, and nonjudgmental space for you to talk ❤

The topics I specialize in are LGBTQ+ related issues, and anxiety, but I promise to do my best to help you no matter what you may be struggling with! Some topics I'm not so good at are eating disorders and trauma. Sometimes there is a better suited listener, and I just want to make sure you are receiving the best support possible! If you feel we might not make a good fit, you can click >

I DO NOT take chats on self-harm or sexual assault/abuse, as these are triggering topics for me. Thank you for understanding!

 About me
My name is Roo and my pronouns are she/her. I live in the USA with my 4 chicken children (and my family of course). I love to dance, read, listen to music, and to paint. I am a self-proclaimed literature JUNKIE and quote enthusiast. I consider myself to be an advocate for mental illness and equality. I believe everyone deserves to feel loved and respected 💕

I am a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, and I support people of all sexual/gender/romantic identities.🌈

I joined 7 cups in May of 2017 while seeking support during a difficult time in my life. In October of 2017 I signed up to be a listener, in hopes of making a positive impact on other's lives, and surrounding myself with love and compassion. I am very passionate about the 7 cups community, and I am always looking for someplace to improve myself :)


Lovely person reading my bio, here are some things I want you to know:

You are strong. Stronger than you could ever know. You are alive, right now, at this very moment! Do you know how much strength it takes to just be alive?


You are beautiful. As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Often times we lack the ability to see the beauty in ourselves that others see in us. Regardless of how you look, you are beautiful, inside and out. 

You are worth it. Your self worth can not be measured by anything anyone says, or what your brain tells you either! You deserve love, happiness, and respect. You deserve to get better.

I believe in you. I think that everyone has the ability to heal, to pursue their goals, and to have good mental health. You are no different! No matter what is going on in your life, or how difficult your struggles might be, I am rooting for you!

I am here for you. We all come from different walks of life, and I will never judge you because of yours. I am here to support you and offer kindness, sympathy, and compassion. I hope that we can be friends!
