~on semi-hiatus! I cannot take on new members at this time~

heart Hello! heart 

I'm Charlie; I use they/them/theirs or he/him/his pronouns. I've been here on 7 cups for a while now, and am happy to listen or offer support to anybody who needs it! Feel free to reach out to me for anything you may be struggling with, including

ADHD 

disordered eating

panic attacks

depression

anxiety disorders

self harm

LGBTQ+ related issues

dermotillomania and/or trichotillomania

existential anxiety

emotional abuse/trauma

family stress

or if you're just feeling lonely or would like to have a light-hearted chat!

Things you can expect from a chat with me: looooads of hugs, zero judgementresources (if you'd like them), a safe space to talkrelevant personal experiences (I promise none of them start with "back in my day" cheeky), and as much love and positivity as I can send you! Also possibly some unicorns.

Feel free to message me at any point in time, and stay strong!  My status is usually set to a red dot, but if you leave a message, I will get back to you as soon as I am able heartYou're also welcome to book me here! Please do know that I'm not always able to answer immediately, as things outside of the site can get chaotic, but that I will do my best!

I've been in some really dark places, and I know that sometimes it can be the most difficult thing in the world just to get up day after day, to keep fighting for a future you aren't even sure you want to reach anymore. There are some nights that feel like they go on forever, and some days when the exhaustion becomes too overwhelming to manage. But you aren't alone. Even when life seems like too much to handle, you aren't all by yourself. As a listener, I'm here to share your burden, to offer what I can, and to help you feel like things will be okay someday. I'll do my best to lift you up when things get rough and celebrate with you when things go well. I'm here to remind you how proud I am that you've made it this far, and how much you have overcome. Things can get tough, but you are worth fighting for, and you really can do this! Keep going, lovely! heart

A note to listeners:

Hi there, lovelies! You are all doing such incredible and positive work helping others! Sometimes, though, we need to not just support others but also be supported. If you've had a difficult chat or you just need somebody to lean on, don't hesitate to leave a message heart Take care of yourself, too!

My lovely listener twins are Nuria @blissfulWaterfall62, Alex @Peanat, and Julia @Juvia1; @Viana is my fantabulous mod twin! heartsmiley Loaf you all!!!

I'm involved in 7 cups in various ways, including as a

I love how they are generous to give me time to talk and how, even if they are not on, I feel like I can still talk to them.
Really kind and lovely
great
Plantkissed was amazing! She helped me a lot, and I would like to thank her so much for helping me get through one of the hardest times. I would recommend her!
I like him or her
Very relaxed and lovely
Charlie is caring, kind and truly listens to you. If you are scared of talking to others or opening up, he is the right person for you. Zero judgement, instead you get an overwhelming amount of kindness and acceptance. He always makes sure you're okay and asks if you need some tips/resources instead of bombarding you with things you should try, which I really appreciate. Outstanding listener 10/10 would recommend (honestly tho).
It's awesome!!!!
He helped me a lot, and now I feel better like I have a purpose and people care about me.
They were so nice and told me exactly what I needed to hear ❤️❤️❤️
Totally amazing. Totally got me.

This listener 😱 This super magical listener 😱 is one of the best listeners I've ever met 😊 They're kind 💕 funny 😂 and are always there for me when I need help 💁 Charlie is a unique 😜 and kind hearted person ❤️ I feel so comfortable talking to Charlie 💛 About anything at all 📎 They put so much thought into their responses 💭 and every response is infused with so much warmth 🔥 and love 💖 I encourage talking to Charlie about any problem you need help with 📖 as they will be able to support you and stay strong through everything 💪
Amazing. I never knew that I was just overthinking this, Everyone is different, and I will have to keep that in mind later.
She is an awesome person. It's really easy to talk to her.
One of the sweetest individuals I've had the pleasure of talking with.

He was very helpful in helping me in becoming one with the force
I felt safe while talking to you, thank you so much
Nobody has ever really treated me better. It was especially great coming from a stranger. They helped me a lot.
Really great
Honestly, I don't know where to start. I haven't felt this relieved in a long time -- getting everything out was so helpful, and Charlie really showed me that I was understood! They reflected my emotions really accurately and showed a lot of empathy while maintaining respect, which was really awesome. It's not every day that you get listeners as amazing as this, and it was really nice to know that someone cares! I didn't know feeling so much better was possible until now -- so thank you, thank you, thank you.
Very very helpful
Such an amazing person. Helped me realize that I'm not alone
