*On a self-care break, responding to long term member and listener messages when I can, however my response time is much slower than usual.* I am currently NOT accepting new personal request chats due to the projects on the listener side that I would like to focus on. I am extremely sorry for any inconvenience. You can find another fantastic listener through this browse listeners page. Thank you! "Fall seven times, stand up eight" Hi you! Yes, you! The incredible human being who might be struggling and who deserves compassion and kindness. I may not have gone through the same experiences as you, but I understand that you are in immense pain. As a listener, and a fellow human being, I want to support you. You are so strong and brave and important. Things may seem difficult or even impossible right now, but you are not alone, I am here for you. Always remember that you matter, are worthy, and valid.About Me: Hello hello hello! I am Hope, a teenager who has gone through the ups and downs of this roller coaster we call life. (I am also called many other names on here such as Dream, Love, Tinker-Bell, Fairy, and Pixie. You are more than welcome to call me one of those, however please do not call me names such as sweetheart, darling, or honey, as it makes me uncomfortable.) I have also been called the "Queen of Typos," so that probably tells you something about me! I am currently a student in high school in the East Coast just trying to figure out her path in life! I have gone through anxiety, frequent panic attacks, depression, self-esteem/self-hatred issues, as well as some other things. I love listening to music, (5sos, Panic! At The Disco, Demi Lovato, Hamilton, All Time Low, Lewis Capaldi, We The Kings) watching Netflix, (Grey's Anatomy, Parks and Rec, The Community) and playing violin! 🎻 I also love activism, and am working on becoming more involved with my local community and causes I believe in. I have recently started debate, and it has come to be one of my favorite things to do. Another thing I really enjoy is learning about other countries, cultures and traditions. As you can probably see, I also love using hearts! My listening Style: During the time we talk, I will leave space for you to talk about whatever is in your mind (with exception to the topics I mention below.) I can either leave most of the talking up to you, or I can listen to your situation and offer a little bit of my insight, however either way my sole focus will be on you. During our chat, I will also empower and validate you while creating a safe place for you to talk (with cookies, hugs, and pixie dust only of course!) Just like you, I have responsibilities outside of 7 cups, as well as my roles on this site. Due to these, my response time currently is within 72 hours. We can either schedule a time to live chat, or we can do offline messaging where we don't have to respond to each other right away, but instead whenever we get the chance. You can choose which one of these options sounds right for you, as I want to do whatever benefits you the most. At the moment, I am not taking any chats about sexual abuse/heath, weight management, exercise motivation, or eating disorders however please don't think that I am judging you if those are the topics you would like support with, the opposite actually. I am really proud of you for reaching out for support, as it can be really hard to do! As I simply cannot offer you the best support that you deserve with those topics, it might be more helpful to reach out to another listener through the browse listeners page. From the bottom of my heart, I hope you find the support you one hundred and ten percent deserve. My listening twins/friends-@BouncySalamander26: Sal is such a smart, thoughtful, and absolutely wonderful listener (and is so good with words!) and I am so lucky to have him as my listener and almost birthday twinnie! @KindAnni: Anni is such a kind, amazing person, and I am so happy they are one of my listener twins. @mykenziemarie03: is such an amazing person. She is very straightforward, but so kind and thoughtful, and always brings a smile to my face and knows exactly what to say. @RiverHudson1: River is just one of the most incredible people ever.

I am so happy and honored that he is my friend! @DontFearToDream: Dream is one of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful person ever. She is so encouraging and empathetic, and such a wonderful human being.
