Hello and welcome to 7Cups. It's so nice to meet you, I'm one of the many active listeners here. I normally go by AstronomySkies, Astro, Astronomy, or Skies. Red means I'm inactive and offlineOrange means I'm busy and will reply when I canGreen means I'm online and available to chat"One Day I Hope You Have The Courage To Run Away From Everything That Makes You Miserable." - Koanashi from Spirited Away
We all constantly go through life battling our own struggles. But no one ever said we had to go through it alone. Feel free to message me anytime you'd like to. I'll be sure to respond as soon as I get back online."If You Stand For Nothing, What'll You Fall For?" - Hamilton Musical
I created my very first account on 7Cups back in 2015 as a member, that one has since been lost. My current member account has been in use since 2017. Becoming a listener was always a goal of mine, but I was hesitant at first to make it happen. I believe I have so much I can give back and help out as a listener. I know that 7Cups has truly helped me through my own rough spots and I want to do the same thing for others that are a part of the community."No One Is Useless In This World Who Lightens The Burden Of It To Anyone Else." - Charles Dickens
I'm 17 years old and attend high school. I hold a job too. I go to therapy for my depression, general anxiety, nightmares and social phobia. I am pansexual and polyamorous. Currently in a poly relationship with 2 wonderful people (a guy and a girl) I've been close friends with for years. I have 4 simply adorable, precious pets, an axolotl, a cat, and two dogs. I absolutely adore anything that has to do with astronomy, stars or space. Can you tell? Lmao. I'm very passionate about psychology, law enforcement, and the major sciences. I love drawing, reading, writing and painting, even dabbling in a bit of digital art. I excersie, and practice combined meditation with yoga. I play video games a lot, Dance Dance Revolution, Call of Duty, and Diablo making the top of the list. I'm really into photography and frequently take pictures of sunsets, the nightsky, and landscapes, and even rainbows. I'm preparing for adulting in a few months, time seems like its going so fast, getting ready for college and/or the military. As you can see I have a busy schedule, so bear with me as I'm not on 24/7 all the time.

Hi my name is Pam.
Adult and Teen Listener
I am a long term listener and a verfied listener on 7 cups.
I am currently taking chats in the following areas.
I do not take chats in any sexual nature. You may browse listener page and type in the keywork of the topic and it will give a list of listeners who will handle those chats.
Aloha, I'm Pink! I'm from the Verified listeners Community here on 7 Cups, and I will be there for absolutely anyone who needs me. Feel free to poke me in my PMs as many times as your heart wishes! And as a side note, I am not an AI system, I just type too quickly, that's all :P Feel free to tune in!
For members - Y'all are extremely brave to reach out for help! The topics I'm comfortable with are listed on my profile but I'm still open to talk about anything that is on your mind! If you do message me, please include what you want to talk about, I would appreciate if you let me know what's on your mind in your initial message.
For listeners - Y'all are doing a great job! Having doubts with active and empathetic listening is natural and completely fine. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Hello my name is Anna and I am a twenty-two year old biology healthcare and neuroscience student in Wisconsin. I am getting my degree in genetic counseling. I have always been a listener to those in need and I hope to continue to be so for the rest of my life. I have experience with anxiety and depression as well as other mental illnesses. In addition I am a trained sexual assault victim advocate and human trafficking advocate. I know first hand what it's like to live with anxiety and panic attacks. I know life isn't always easy and I want to be there to walk in your shoes if even for a short time. You'll never walk alone.

Although I am unable to be online all the time feel free to send me a message and we can set up a time to talk! I look forward to chatting with you!
New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time. I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- October 23-28
Otherwise, my normal availability will stand - I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slightly slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.
Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out!
You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me. I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you.
If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
"Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself."
"Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day."
Much love to all,
Everyone can do with a little less judgement.
Let's make that crazy diamond inside of you, shine once more!
Hug O' War
I will not play at tug o' war
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses
And everyone grins
And everyone cuddles
And everyone wins.

@Iara has been my sister from pretty much day one; she's one of the most amazingly spirited people I have ever met, and I love her dearly; if you speak with her you'll be in good hands.
@Jack is nothing short of a full-fledged superhero. His optimism, encouragement, love and enthusiasm are enough to make anyone smile for ages. Jack is a beautiful person who I wholeheartedly adore; I am forever indebted to him for his support, kindness and grace. I like him more than cake and naps. <3

@Rebecca is one of the most intelligent and wonderfully amazing people I've ever met. Her insight brings so much to the table, and she never ceases to amaze me with her grace and finesse. Anyone would be lucky to call her a friend!
