Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Alex, and I'm a trained Active Listener here at 7 Cups.
I have been through many experiences dealing with depression, stress, and trauma in my day, and I still struggle with anxiety. So, I can most likely relate to you and your experiences.
As an Active Listener, my job here is to listen to you, whether you're ranting to me or simply seeking a friendly voice to have a conversation. Just know that you are never alone, and I commend your strength and perseverence.
Most of my Active Listening days are spent on prescheduled chats, but if you would prefer immediate support, you can enter the queue to speak with the next available Listener here at any time, 24/7/365.
What do I feel comfortable helping with?
There are many different topics that I am willing to chat with you about, and many of them are listed below. However, nobody's experiences are ever cookie-cutter in nature, so please do not let my listed areas of expertise turn you away from seeking my support - simply send me a message and I will be more than happy to listen to you.
What do I do outside of Active Listening?
What I love about 7 Cups is how much more there is to it than simply connecting 1-1 with a Listener. With that said, here's a list of what I do here at 7 Cups, other than listening to Members and Guests:
Community Mentor Leader (Listener Learning & Journey Subcommunity)
Global Group Moderator (I can mod all Group Support Chatrooms)
Peer Supporter (Listeners - I'm here for you after you've had a rough chat!)
Chatroom Teen Star (I moderate Listener Chatrooms)
Quality Teen Star (I grade Active Listening 2 exams)
Forum Teen Star (I monitor the Forum Flags and moderate the Forums)
Teen Anxiety Support Team Leader
Group Support Chatroom Doorkeeper

I am here to listen to you, however, I am mostly listening to long term members and working on other projects.

| Teen Quality Mentor | Teen Transition Mentor |Active Listening 1 (Grading & Feedback)You can call me Amp!Greetings, I'm so glad that you've reached out for help. I know that life can seem like a complicated journey sometimes. During this time, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed, confused or frustrated. My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgemental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You don't have to feel you are alone on the journey.
Hi! I’m sorry that I’m rarely here lately. 😌
There have been a number of unusual events. I had several bouts of extended bronchitis and pneumonia, which knocked me to bits. I had my first asthma attack, which was no picnic.
And I experienced two unexpected but deep loves that have been the most extraordinary of my life. A special baby->toddler I was caring for, and a lovely man who reawakened a part of me that I had buried long ago.
Also, after being one of the earliest listeners at 7 Cups (joining in August 2013), with many warm and wonderful times, I had two very bad experiences in late 2017 and early 2018. I pondered why it occurred, how it came about, and the extent of my own responsibility. Very difficult. I became uncertain. And afraid, and the joy drained out of being here.
Plus, I turned 66 years old in 2018. It feels unreal to keyboard that. Yet, from January through mid-April 2019, I worked more than 60 hours per week at my three part-time jobs. (Yes, one of my weaknesses is being unable to say Nowhen people express a need for my help.)
Anyway, in April 2019, I quit two of my jobs. Time for Annie to reach out for her dreams.
I’m going to live in France for three months starting in September 2019. I have signed up for four cultural exchanges that provide room and meals in exchange for volunteer work like teaching. I’m so excited, I keep grinning all day.
Access to internet will be sketchy. If you write to me, it could be weeks before I can reply, I’m so sorry!
Love and peace to all. ☀️🙏🏼❤️
(* Sometimes we can't talk with a friend or family member because it's too confidential. But we need to talk with someone, just to share what's going on with a friendly person. I'm here to listen. *)
*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as a story told by you. There are many ups in life as well as many downs but it is up to the author of each story to determine the next chapter.* ~Anya Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year. Many people suffer from mental health struggles but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But what’s harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you aren’t struggling. You shouldn’t have to pretend like you are always okay, out of fear that others will judge you or talk about you or think any less of you. No matter what you are dealing with, you are still you. The only thing that matters is that you know your strength and your courage, and let me tell you, everything that you are is more than enough, no matter who you are or what you are going through. So don’t be ashamed of any part of it. Your battles are what shape you into the strong and amazing person you are. And no matter what anyone tells you, it’s okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. It’s okay not to believe it for a while. It’s okay to struggle. I assure you, you are not alone. Every single one of us goes through that at some point or another.I will always be here to listen to your story, and I will not ever judge you, or make you feel ashamed of what you are going through, or see you as anything less than the wonderful person you are. Because I know that at the end of the day, the one who has the courage to speak about it, is the one who is the bravest of them all.ListenersI want you all to remember that you guys are truly amazing. Spending time on here to help others during your free time shows dedication, compassion, and kindness on your part. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me? Feel free to send me a message at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can!
