When you can't look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark. 

- Hatter; Alice in Wonderland.


Hello, this is Pals aka Tex, Rabbelion, Bun-bun, deformed Chihuahua, Paul etc etc (feel free to give me a name, if you wish).
Well, I won't bore you with a long introductory paragraph or something like that. Let's just keep it short and specific.

Firstly, for the uninitiated, I am the "bunny" of 7 cups (on public demand) xD
I am pretty chill and relaxed so, by all means, approach me regarding anything as in, a member 1-to-1 chat, a listener 1-to-1 chat, some queries you might have etc. I love hanging out in rooms and meeting/talking to different people, so just drop me a PM (private message) anytime you want to have a non-serious, fun discussion, I won't mind. 

My roles include:
This para is kinda tedious, full of roles and monotonous stuff, hence skip it if you want to.

1. Verified Listener: I am a VL (short for Verified Listener), which means I have been declared as a listener with furnished active listening skills by 7 Cups community via a mock chat; you can find a 'Purple' tick mark beside my username and a 'Verified Listener' badge in my profile confirming the same. 

2. Safety Patrol member: I am a member of Safety Patrol team which looks over the safety and security of the members and listeners of this site; you can confirm the same by the 'Safety Patrol' badge in my profile which lets me flag any inappropriate profiles. Please, do let me know if you spot anyone who you feel might hamper the safety and security of the site with an inappropriate profile/username or bio. 

3. Sharing Circle buddy: As a former Sharing Circle host, I help new Sharing Circle hosts in conducting a smooth session as a 'Sharing Circle buddy'. 

4. Listener Verifier: I am a member of Listener Verifier team as well, which means I am able to conduct mock chats to help interested listeners get verified; please confirm the same by finding a 'Listener Verifier Team' badge on my profile. 

5. Safety Patrol Outreach Team member: I am part of this wonderfully consructed team of SPOT (short for Safety Patrol Outreach Team) which allows me to conduct Safety Patrol training sessions to help interested listeners become a part of Safety Patrol member. The title also allows me to reach out to listeners/members flagged by Safety Patrol members to discuss regarding the issue. 

6. Translator: I am a member of the 7 cups translating team. I help translate 7 cups from 'English' to 'Hindi'; a 'Translator' badge on profile confirms the same. 

7. Sharing Circle host: I am a Sharing Circle host as well; confirmed by 'Sharing Circle' badge on my profile. However, currently, not hosting any Sharing Circle. 

8. Safety Awareness team member: I am a member of the Safety awareness team. My roles include conduction 'safety support/awareness' group discussions and quizzes; confirmed by 'Safety Support' badge on my profile. 

My Achievements include:

1. 7 Cups Intern Graduate:
I am proudly a 7 cups intern graduate with Honors. 

2. Training guides completion: I have completed all the self-training guides, some of which are 'depression', 'Bipolar', 'Anxiety' etc, with sheer dedication. 

3. Completion of Peer training guides: along with completing self-training guides, I am elevated to inform that I have completed all the peer training guides, from one to twelve. 
(Note: this doesn't make me a Peer Supporter (PS).  If you want to talk to a Peer Supporter, please connect with one here:

4. Tulip badge: I am a 'Tulip badge' holder, if the one who recommended me for the same is reading this, then please know that I can never thank you enough. 

5. Completion of AL tests: I am delighted to announce that I have all four AL completion badges, 'Graduate', 'Master', 'Scholar' and 'Rocket listener', which confirms that I have successfully completed all four Active Listening Tests, one, two, three, four, respectively. 

Before I proceed, let me tell you that I did not list the roles and achievements because I wanted to flaunt them or make myself feel important. That's not why they exist, at least not the roles. I am not a fan of listing them as well. 
I did this simply because I have a poor memory so listing these in my bio will help me keep a track of it.
Additionally, by listing them I wanted to let you know that anyone in search for information regarding any of the above mentioned roles/achievements can PM me, I would be glad to help you solve your queries on the same or provide you with any information I have. 

Which reminds me, I want to address a topic I have been meaning to speak about (I will try to keep it short, I promise):

Your roles/achievements don't define your 'status', 'respect', or 'position' in this community. I request you to never ever sign up for a role or roles if you aren't interested or just want to feel 'important' in this community.
You are important. Every single person in this community matters and is equally significant. You don't need to sign up for roles to prove it to yourself or to someone else. We all, together, make this community a better place and your roles/achievements/chats/cheers/rating don't/doesn't matter. 
        If you are really passionate about a team or want to join it because you are genuinely interested in it, then unquestionably join it. But please, please don't ever expose yourself to a burn out/compromise your mental health or sign up for a larger number of roles than you can handle just to list it down in your profile or to seem like more 'important'. 
       I don't mean offense to anyone. I respect people who work passionately on different levels just to keep this site working, I really do respect and appreciate their efforts. 
Again: you matter, you are a salient part of this site. Every single one of you

Few lines I read somewhere which I absoluetly love:

"Even if you are not noticed, you are still valid.
 Even if there is no one to read it, you should still write it. 
 Even if there is no one to hear it, you should still say it. 
 Even if there is no one to see it, you should still do it. 
 You are not measured by how people react to you."

Lastly, a special mention of someone who has tagged me in their profile:

@leafycup: thank you for mentioning me in your cute little bio, Leafyyy :p

(P.S: for those who remember it, yes, my self-care has come to an end anddd I am backkk, to attack you guys with cookies and my nomming sessions xD)

Ok i love your conversation
Firstly, she is the best listener I have ever talked to.....I certainly recommend her. Has her own unique way of providing support, listens to you patiently. doesn't judge(that's a good trait of a listener). She is honest.... like if she doesn't have any experience of handling a certain issue, she honestly says so.
She is the best I ever talked to! How can someone be so cute when she clearly wasn't trying to be?She was fierce yet adorable. Unique in her own way. Understanding, professional and calm.
