WeedyGarden I vote him Mentor of the year for 7Cups. I only wished 7Cups had such an award. I would vote for him. Amazing person. 7Cups should honor WeedyGarden,in some way.
Fantastic listener
Thank you WeedyGarden, you were super helpful. I appreciate you giving me the space to vent and replying with insightful and supportive comments. You're a very calming individual to talk to and I found that after the conversation, I felt prepared to deal with everything. I appreciate the time you dedicate to helping others. I send my thanks and a virtual *hug* - North

Very good at listening. Won't take over the conversation. I would say, a trained listener. Not writing much, but makes you feel calm and listened to.

He is a really awesome listener and is very good at being a very real very authentic person. He knows how to validate and really gets what it feels like to be going through something challenging. I am so lucky to have found one of the really good ones!
