( 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).
Salve! Welcome to my page 😊 ✌
Who am I?My name is Gyda, I am twenty years old and I’m proud to be here and do my bit to help the world, one little deed at a time. I have been to lots of places and learnt many things, and all my life choices have led me to this place. I’m a passionate volleyball player and an ex-young athlete, and would like to infect everyone with my positivity ❤︎ I’m here for those deep chats and those light hearted ones.
Music is extremely therapeutic, which is why I consider it one of the most important things in my life. My favourite artists are Tash Sultana and the Danish band Off Bloom. I’m a massive tattoo fan because I see this as a way of personal expression and I also support animal rights with all my heart. One of my biggest rolemodels in my life right now is MØ because she believes in humility and encourages people to fight for what they believe in.
Due to nature of chats, I only accept chats related to the following topics:
★ Anxiety ★
★ Borderline Personality Disorder ★
★ Drug and Alcohol use ★
★ Eating Disorders ★
★ Self-harm ★
I accept those topics as I have my own personal experience in them and I am not as helpful if I were to take a chat outside my experiences. I’m the ‘B’ on the LGBTQ and also willing to chat to you about coming out or any other light-hearted things. Please get in touch if I sound like a Listener you’re after, I don’t bite.
What I do
My current involvements are somewhat limited, but I believe we all have a role to play, big or small, and I try to do everything with a lot of passion.
My roles:☕ Global Mod ☕
☕ Quality Mentor ☕
☕ Peer Supporter ☕
☕ Verified Listener ☕
☕ Safety Team ☕Reach out to me if you ever need moderating or peer supporting if you’re a Listener!
Member and Listener info Members – Please consider my chat topics before you message me, I don’t take pleasure in turning away chat topics I am not comfortable with, but I will try my best to find the right Listener for you! If you do have a chat within my topics, please send me a message briefly explaining what’s up. I slot my conversations for 60 minutes at a time, this helps both me and you, since I often lose my focus and attention, but I am more than willing to converse longer the more often we talk.Listeners – I am a Quality Mentor, and naturally I am available to help you out with any Listener-related issues. As a global moderator I am always available for active moderating, as long as I’m online. As a Peer supporter, I’m here to listen to you, but keep in mind if it’s a personal issue, do relog to a member account 😊

- Jahseh Onfroy Feel free to message me anytime, i will get back to you when i can. My bubble remains offline so who knows when i am on~I am now a room supporter so if you would like some help in a group chat let me know, But keep in mind i am not a mod. Topics that i can provide the best support with:-Domestic Violence
-Alcohol and Drug Abuse
-Self-HarmThese are just topics I have personal experiences with, I am open to talking about anything that you may be struggling with. About Me:Hi my name is Katie and I'm 17 and a Senior in High School. I'm usually a pretty laid back person, but other times I'm literally bouncing off the walls haha. I love sports. Gymnastics, track and feild, and cross country are my favorites. I am really passionate about music, (be careful if you talk about pianos with me) and i love horseback riding. After high school i plan on joining the Army and later becoming a therapist for kids and teens. Quote time:I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me. Life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced. Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Music is a weapon in the war against unhappiness.She builds others up because she knows what its like to be torn down. The End. 😂

My name is Mel and I am a verified intermediate listener that suffers from Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and a survivor of sexual abuse. I have dealt with years of severe depression cycles where I laid in bed for months at a time in pain and feeling lonely and hopeless and felt like a huge burden to my family. I have had many years of treatment and therapy and group therapy, thank goodness for some great peer support and my own therapist, I have worked through my issues, and I am finally in a great spot in my life, I want to give back to my community (mental health) in hopes of maybe helping someone by listening and offering my unconditional support. I have 3 handsome grown sons. I have been married for 25 years to a VERY patient and understanding man and I have a listener twin here at 7 cups, her name is Paula02. I decided to go back to college since my children are grown to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree. I want to become a Therapist or an Addiction Counselor. I am here to listen and support you judgement free through several issues; loneliness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, sexual assault, and bipolar disorder.

Have a wonderful day <3<3 "Alot of people say that you can't just smile away depression. They are right, but some of it is actually wanting to get better and DOING something to get better.

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.

-------------------------------------------------------------#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
-------------------------------------------------------------#MostImportantThing -- As long as you feel pain, you are still alive. As long as you make mistakes, you are still human. And as long as you keep trying, there is still hope. - Susan Gale
-------------------------------------------------------------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.
Carl R. Rogers, Freedom to Learn, 1969
-------------------------------------------------------------Give. But don’t allow yourself to be used. Love. But don’t allow your heart to be abused. ❤️Trust. But don’t be naive. Listen. But don’t lose your own voice.

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.
