Hey there! You can call me Ben) and just like you I found this site during times of severe emotional stress and it helped me feel better! Im here to listen to you, be a shoulder to lean on.. To help you. Feel free to reach out to me!
About me personally I'm 21 years old and a student of Uni. I have suffered physical and psychological abuse as a child and my early teens which has left me damaged. I've been shamed and neglected, rarely remember ever waking up with a smile on my face and yet I kept silent about it all for a long long time.. in social circles tried to fit in and be normal, be cool and be accepted.. it never worked out. Ive experienced failure and severe loneliness.. I've seen a lot of death and misery in my life since childhood and had a very poor support system to help me then, but despite it all I've always had an undying hope for the future!
This site and some of the people I have met here too are my ray of hope, keeping me going and helping me with my daily battle with depression! Reminding me that as long as i'm here, I have someone i can count on and to support me
Hopefully I can be that person for you as well) Learning to love yourself for who you are is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself!
I enjoy doing calisthenic/bodyweight workouts, volunteering, listening, writing and playing music. The guitar is my instrument of choice 👍
A former metalhead now with a liking for calmer music and a special love for Avicii songs))
I love doing research and sketching portraits as well
I take chats on Social anxiety, Relationships, Depression, College life, Bullying, Family stress and Healthy living but I'm willing to listen to anything you have to tell me with an open mind and heart! And I'll try my best to be helpful 😊
Looking forward to getting to know you! 😉

Hey everyone, I see you stumbled upon my profile. My name is Keanan 😛 I am a verified listener. I myself have been through a lot such as breakups, anxiety, social anxiety, depression, and a lot of LGBTQ+ related issues 😩 I feel like I can help you if you give me the chance, I have a lot of experience in a lot of things I haven’t even listed so know how it feels and how to recover from things and could help you on your path to recovery too 😯 Leave me a message about anything, even if I am offline since a lot of the time I just leave my profile offline and am online so you might be able to catch me while I’m free. I can help with a lot, but I am especially good at helping people with issues such as: sexual abuse, self harm, and depression. But do know you can come to me about most things 😃~Community Involvements~I am a peer supporter
I am an active member of the verifiers team (just drop me a pm if you wanna be verified)I’m usually available for a chat but if I am not you can leave a message or go to this link *hugs*Browse Listeners“Tis a lesson you should heed:

Isaac - this guy is a person I randomly met to help with this profile in fact and through talking to him I found out how amazing he could be D: such a great guy, he just helped me out and was so optimistic and just put away a lot of spare time to put up with me :’)
MidniteAngel - Now Angel is a person I randomly messaged about a feed post from months prior when I started talking to her lol, she always has been a really helpful person, and as a teen star has been able to do her thang and help me out a bunch, such a great person and I’m glad I met her.
FlowersOfHope - now we get onto hopey hope a rather funny thing hehe, I started of being kinda intimidated by her but tried to get over that and talk to her and omgggggggggg she is such a niceeeee person, so kind and just a blast to talk to, I wouldn’t ever pass the opportunity to talk to her these days, truly one of the best people I’ve ever met.Sending out love to you all 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖
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:
- Jan 21-Jan 24
- Feb 11-Feb 19
- Feb 21-Feb 22
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,
Welcome to 7Cups! I'm so glad you've found us!
My name is Aeryn! (My pronouns are he/him or they/them.) I love reading, listening to music, and rocking out in my pj's. I am in school full time and am studying medicine and business (I am aware that these are very different). I am here to listen!!!
I have been a member and a listener on here for quite some time, and I think this has progressed me as a listener. I try to answer any and all messages within two hours, even if my status is offline (I get phone notifications).
The times when I am most available are:
Mon-Fri 7:10- 10:00 EST
Sat 20:00-24:00 EST
Sun 19:00-23:00 EST
If you want to schedule a time outside of these windows, let me know. I try to be as flexible as possible.

Want to chat about an event? A terrible day at work? Chronic illnesses? Anxiety? Or anything else? I am here to listen!!
UNFORTUNATELY I AM CURRENTLY NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW MEMBERS.
Hi, you! :)
Yes, you! Welcome to 7cups of tea and my profile! I am very glad that you are here! :) That's awesome!
In case you're wondering whether the two of us would be a good match, I want to share a few things about me.
I love helping others, I am a dog person, I love reading and art and long walks, and big cities, and getting immersed in a good movie or tv show. I have been through my fair share of things, and supported people around me with the issues they were facing.
I believe that every issue you are dealing with, no matter how big or small you may perceive it, is worth talking about and that's why it's so awesome that you're here right now. I also believe in the power of humor, at the same time I know it's not everyone's cup of tea ;) and that some topics are not funny whatsoever. I am not a professional psychologist, but over time on here I have learned my bits and pieces about active listening and offering emotional support, which I believe if done well, can go a long way. And offering emotional support through active listening is what I will try my best to do during our chats. It may not solve any issues you are facing, but maybe it will take the weight off your shoulders and make you feel less alone with it.
I am happy to listen about pretty much anything and everything! :) Naturally though, I am stronger/more experienced with some topics than others. My listening strengths lie in LGBTQ+, relationships (including yourself, your partner, friendships and families!), grief, work, struggling with beliefs and belonging, being a TCK, TCI, CCK, support in situations of being discriminated, and PMS/PMDD.
Currently my schedule is busy, so I currently take chats one person at a time, an hour each, and regulars weekly.
I am looking forward to meeting you and listening to you! :)Make sure to meet my awesome listener twins

Members - My strengths are mental health, especially BPD and addictions. Do take most chats regarding mental health.
Not so strong on relationships or parenting
Self care is something am very aware of and feel is something needed for everyone at some time. Am an active part of the Listener Events Team to promote self care in community. 'You can't pour from an empty cup'
I strongly believe in psychology - as a psychology student - I view our Psyches/psychology to be a key for all success in life. I believe that soulfully, we are all butterflies - we suffer from trials and misfortunes, and bit by bit, we are purified by our sufferings, until we are able to soar like a great butterfly.But the greatest thing amongst the chaos of this world, is that we can unite in the face of darkness in order to grasp the light. Conquer your life today, and reach out whenever needed!My Current Roles:
