*** I am really sorry but I am not taking new long term member chats at the moment***When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

Hi there! I'm Luke, and I'm 32 and from Georgia in the US. Happy to be here and to lend a listening ear to those in need. I have experience with parenting, family-related stress, and relationship stress and am a member of the LGBTQ+ community, but please feel free to reach out with anything on your mind and we can try to talk it out.
Please don't hesitate to reach out whenever. I'm on the east coast in the US, so be mindful of possible timezone differences. I also have a family and a job, so bear with me if I don't get back to you immediately. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are particularly busy for me personally, so I may be extra slow to respond, if at all, on those days. Regardless, I will try to get back to you as soon as I can, even if it says I'm offline.

( TL;DR : ☑ Mental (Disorders) Illness ☑ Trauma Support ☑ Sexual Issues ☑ Depression | ☒ Relationship Issues and Breakups ☒ Gender Identity Issues ☒ Pregnancy ☒ Financial Stress ☒ Bullying ☒ Self-Harm ☒ Social Anxiety ☒ Self-Esteem ☒ Sexting [and any chat subject against site agreements] )In order of descending comfortability.⊗⊗⊗ Above all else, I'd like to specify that I am unable to help those with problems relating to self-esteem (i.e. negative body image, shame and feelings of worthlessness) and those who are struggling with self-harm. This should be noted by those who have not personally requested me, therefore I'm sorry for any inconvenience. ⊗⊗⊗My name's Katariina; I'm very easy-going, open-minded, and can understand the majority of situations. I'm a very honest person, therefore what I tell you might not be what you want to hear, but be assured that I always have the best intentions. If you find that I am being too insensitive, you'd be able to inform me of your opinion and I'll be able to change my behaviour accordingly. Yet, I'm a stereotypical Canadian most of the time: kind and polite, not to mention maple syrup loving.I might not be the best listener for the following topics:
Breakups (as I'm unable to help those looking to move on) and other relationship issues; bullying; eating disorders, body image, and self-esteem issues; envy (or jealousy); exercise motivation; financial and work stress; grief; self-harm; social anxiety; transgender issues; and unwanted/unexpected pregnancy.I do not accept personal requests that pertain to these problems. Please seek another listener that will better compliment your needs.I am familiar with a variety of mental disorders including:Anxiety (those experiencing a panic attack, will be recommended to practice the mindfulness exercises, the option to continue chatting will still stand for those who are safe), autism (and Asperger's syndrome), bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder (BPD), depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociative identity disorder (DID/MPD) and other psychosis-related disorders.I am also proficient in listening to those with feelings of guilt (relating to significant wrongdoings).I accept all requests dealing with the mentioned, sometimes even when I'm marked as busy. If you request me with a different issue, I may turn you away.Be warned that I do have a "suck it up attitude" and might not be the right listener for some struggling with depression, and I do not chat with those who would like to talk about self-harm and having low self-esteem.If you see that I'm online, don't hesitate in sending me a request.Post Scripts :
- I do take chats on loneliness, although I am not very talkative and might struggle to carry a light conversation.
- I'm comfortable taking chats that are sexual in nature if I am being respected during the chat (i.e., I will not continue a chat with someone who has made a pass at me). I'm currently not taking chats on sexual issues concerning one's parents and BDSM.
- Those interested to know more about me: I am more logical than I am emotional, I possess many extensive philosophical views (for example, I am a nihilist) and I am of Jewish belief, however, I practice Buddhism. Also, I have obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD).
Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with issues related to stress or relationship issues. I enjoy photography, travelling the world, hiking, astronomy and social networking. I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Glad you are here!
ElectricPoetry61 was a name that 7 cups gave me. I did not choose it. However, now that I am Electric Poetry, I thought I should write a poem on electrons. So here goes nothing...Eons of Ions ago, I met a negative electronThe covalence was electrifying, but the magnetism split us into two halvesIn a parallel universe, they are still just one, not two.
"Some people could be given an entire field of roses and only see the thorns in it.
Others could be given a single weed and see the wildflower in it.
Perception is a key component to gratitude. And gratitude a key component to joy"

-------------------------------------------------------------#MostImportantThing -- That love heals, and forgiving someone can sometimes mean a world of difference between them losing faith in themselves or holding on to your trust in them as a person. Be careful with words, you never know how deep they sink into another person.
I feel thankful for:
Life, given to me
People, who I love
Awareness, that I know who I am

-------------------------------------------------------------People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be... When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner"… I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.

Nice to meet you! I am Painting, a trained active listener.I am here to listen to what is on your mind and do my best to help you.I have been dealing with depression for a long time, so I can relate to depressed people and can understand how much depression can affect one or more aspects of our lives.Other subjects I can relate to are: anxiety, social anxiety, bullying, self harm and domestic violence, but my chats are not limited to these topics.
Hello. I'm a listener on 7 Cups of tea. I know we all go through hard times, and whatever it may be. It's important to have someone to talk to. That's why I'm here. To help others and to grow. Let's talk
Green: I am available and currently taking chats Orange: I am online but I may be focusing my attention on other things and replies may be slower Red: I am offline or am unable to take chats at the moment.I mainly keep my focus on long term members, but I will still support you whether you want to continue long term or not.. If you are looking for long term, let me know in the message you leave and we can work on a plan as to what to work on. I am just one message away.Everyone has a purpose and you may not know yours yet, and that’s alright. For a lot of people it can be really difficult to find a purpose, but don’t give up on what you want to have or want to be later because of what is happening now. You have a real chance at success as long as you just try!!!A little about my listening style…I am always here for you when I am around, and no that does not mean I am always online as I have my limits but I don’t give up on my members. I mainly take long term members but I am open to setting up times to talk for both long term and short term support. My main topics are ADHD, depression, self-harm recovery, personality disorders, and anxiety but I am open to being there for you for other topics, but I do not have as much knowledge on other topics.
I am NOT a crisis resource, I will not turn you away for self-harm as long as it is past and you are not actively in crisis. In crisis would mean that you are actively harming yourself in any way or have an intention to do so or if you are currently at risk of harm from another person. Whether you are in a good mood or maybe not feeling so great, I am here to listen, and I can deal with anger and negative emotions just please remain respectful towards me and towards yourself during our chat so that I can best help. I am open to hearing your rants or being a sounding board and as long as you are not attacking me or anyone else. I will not get mad if you need to curse in my PMs to express those emotions and I can always be that safe place that you are able to come whenever you may need it. A little about me…My name is Isabelle and I am 18, transitioning to the adult side. I really enjoy Psychology and I’m not exactly sure what field I want to branch out to at this time, but I plan on majoring in Psychology and finding a way to make a difference in the world for all of the people that are struggling with mental illnesses. I am currently in my last year of school before going into college/university. This being said, things do get crazy so I am not here all the time and I may not be able to respond immediately, but I try to get back with you as soon as I am able. I have gone through my share of struggling throughout my life including struggling with depression, self-harm, ADHD, and many other things and I found my recovery here through listening and helping others. I understand the struggle of not having others understand and even professionals not quite getting the point and that is why I try to be here for each and every one of you as long as possible.
Hello! Thanks for finding me on 7 cups. I'm Journey. I am practiced in supporting people struggling with ADHD, anxiety, and managing emotions, but I am happy to provide support and a listening ear for other issues as well. I am on Pacific Standard Time (PST) and am available to chat in the evenings. Please feel free to reach out if you think I can be helpful to you!
