I imagine this is my opportunity to tell you a wee bit about me.
I have a sincere dedication to volunteering my non-structured time to 7 cups.
I have a strong educational background on which to draw from (2 advanced degrees in Psychology and 1 in Business) as well as a life full of rich experiences.
I'm happy to listen and happy to help. All that I ask is that you come willing to invest in yourself, as much as I am willing to invest in you.

MESSAGES FROM THE BIRD HOUSE
(This is just OUR fun spot and may change often...either something that was on the mind of Phoenix or an idea from one of my lovely baby birds ((aka my guests, and members)). Yes, YOU! You are my 7 cups family! Swoop on in, we all learn from one another. If you have a quote, a thought, or a song you would like listed here, let me know)!
Try to sing a little, play a little, and dance a little every day! Remember to love your inner child.
Everything you ever needed to know, you learned in the sandbox

------This is my Tribe-----
The best of friendships are born from respect. Over time, comes a deep sense of caring, trust, gratitude and love. Octopus Twinnie: @ ItsDev The true Octopus master of multi-tasking. The tried and true and even when the chips are down. They do it all along with a big heart, compassion and a smile. (gosh, that's a lot of arms Dev, how do you do it?) Magical Twinnie: @Alpacaking With wand in hand the Magical twinnie will transform any room and any interaction bringing joy to others. They sprinkle fairy dust as well with knowledge, help and huggles. (got that one right "blaby")Half Nerd Twinnie: @VickyP Never underestimate the power of the half nerd twinnie. Smart, funny, the quintessential onion with so many layers. Quick to rise to the occasion and help others in need. (you might be an onion, but you'll always be my "hi Sausage")
It's been a privilege to stand in the light of all three of you and bask in your glow! *hugs*

Hello and welcome to 7cups! You can call me Blue and I am a Verified Listener!I'm here with the hopes of helping, even if that means making a difference in the life of just one individual, even for just a tiny moment.I am in my mid 20's. I have experience with NGO's and other aiding societies. I have had a fair share of unpleasant experiences so far and have learned that it is okay to feel lost and purposeless in life and that nothing is permanent !Always know that opening up to someone and showing how vulnerable you are is not a sign of weakness, but that of immense strength! and hence, I am here for you, if you ever feel the need to talk without having to worry about being judged.You're not alone, even if that is how it may seem like.I cannot promise to make all your worries go way, no one can promise you that, but sometimes talking about it can help you identify the reason behind why you feel what you feel, which gives a sense of clarity and peace.Looking forward to hearing from you! I am usually here around 10PM IST // 12:30 PM EDT on weekdays. But you can contact me anytime because I would LOVE to hear from you!If I am not around, please feel free to leave me a message, and I'll try to get back as soon as I can.

Please note: If you message me, I consider you my friend. Hi friend ♥
Another note: If we talk long-term and I don't come online/answer you for some days, I'm probably taking some time for the sake of my own mental health. I'm not ignoring you and I haven't forgotten about you. I will come back around as soon as I can. I'm very sorry in advance.
Now that that's out of the way, hi! My name is Briana, but you can call me Bree! (Please, please, please don't call me Bri) I'm an intern here and I'm 17, possibly genderfluid (she/he/they pronouns are all okay), pansexual, and wtfromantic (look it up, I promise it's actually a thing). Most of my time not on here is spent doing school work, volunteering, or babysitting. I enjoy drawing, singing, writing, playing on my keyboard, learning new things, running, playing with my dog, and helping people, among lots of other things! I just about always have music playing in the background, and my favorite bands are twenty one pilots, The Gaslight Anthem, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! At the Disco :D From the family issues, disordered thinking, depression/mania, and anxiety I still deal with daily to the bullying, eating disorders, and self-harm I've overcome, I've experienced a lot in my short 17 years. I want to use the strength and empathy I've acquired from these situations to help others as best I can. I strive to go to college for clinical psychology and go on to do something great in the field, so I truly do enjoy helping those that I do here on 7 cups. If you ever need anything, whether I'm online or not, send me a message. I'll get back to you as soon as I can, usually within 24 hours, and help to the best of my ability.
I welcome new members to the 7 cups community and make sure that any questions they have are answered!
I let fellow listeners know that the time and effort they put into 7 cups is appreciated and that they're doing an awesome job!
I spread the word about 7 cups on other social medias!
I give mock chats to listeners that have met the qualifications to get them a step closer to being verified! If you'd like to do a mock chat, just send me a message!
I moderate in the group chat rooms to ensure that everyone is heard and feels safe!
I'm here for my fellow listeners after a hard chat!
♥Depression Support Team♥
I lead a discussion every week on the topic of depression! My discussions are held on Mondays at 8pm in teen support chat room 1 (: Feel free to join me!
♥Member's Birthday Celebration Team♥

I hope you have a wonderful day, and in case you need to hear it:
you're wanted, you're needed, you have a purpose, you're loved, you would be missed if something happened to you, your feelings are valid, you are valid, things WILL get better, and please stay alive. |-/

Hi, I am a mother, wife, Nona, cousin to a few, most of all a very good listener, a great friend ! Sadly my entire family has past Mom, Dad, Grands, my 1 & only Sister ! Which was 1 of thee most devastating things I had to go through ! I’m a true believer in God, strongly believe I’m here for other reasons beside work, cook, clean, babysit, pay bills & on & on ! Searched found this ! I’m a very good judge of character I’m a very compassionate person with a huge heart ❤️ & a truly caring soul ! I know what it’s like to be ignored to cry to yourself, feeling alone, begging people “ Please I just need one to talk to to LISTEN W/Out judgement or correcting my very other word “ “ PLESE PLEASE LET ME BE ME “ Which brings me to try to help someone else ! There are a few words that have always been & still are excluded from my vocabulary
1-Crazy 2-Can’t 3-Hate 4-Junkie For 1 we are all crazy in 1 way or another a word too freely used ! Can’t I’m a firm believer in you can do anything you want if you want it bad enough Never say never keep your dreams alive you don’t know what lies ahead Hate you may dislike, be upset, be very angry with 1-2-3 people do not HATE for it’s not a good thing or feeling to live with ( Let it go) Junkie That is another strong word a person abusing drugs; alcohol have a sickness ! I feel either help them or move on I do not accept calling anyone this name nor any other name !
Always say a kind WORD to another for all you know it may be the only kind word that person may hear ! Never look down on one unless you are helping them up ! Treat others as you’d like to be treated
Looking forward to hearing from you guys, a lot of stuff I been through I can help you through !!! It would ALL be 😇 pleasure Have a great day 😀
