I am a 25 year old healthcare worker who has dealt with a variety of mental health issues (depression, anxiety, insomnia, and an eating disorder). I also have an extensive trauma background that provides me a unique perspective. I have learned to manage my conditions through therapy, medication, exercise, and healthy friendships. I'd love to chat with you about anything you'd like to share! Things I do on 7 Cups: Chatrooom Mentor -- Quality Mentor -- Teen Quality Mentor -- Verified Listener Team -- Peer Support My listener twins are @WalrusWasPaul and @SouthernFlame :) And yes, my profile picture is me!

Today I Become YOUR New Best Friend!
My AMAZING twin for life is MrsBrownEyes.
Hey there! My name is Phillip, I am a 7 Cups Of Tea Intern, and starting from this very moment I wish to become your new trusted friend who has both been through, seen first hand and dealt with issues ranging from: Alcohol/Drug Abuse, Eating Disorders, Family Stress, Panic Attacks as well as Self-Harm and who feels that with his years of experience in dealing with these sensitive topics is confident that he can assist you or at least lessen the burden of your issues.
My main areas of expertise and a keen constant focus for me are: Anxiety, Breakups, Bullying, Depression and Managing Emotions.
Helping people help themselves is what drove me to not only become a trained active listener, but to also excel in all fields thereof and constantly better myself to be the best listener I can be for each and every one of the unique souls calling out for support.

More about MrsBrownEyes:
As the alias hints, she has brown eyes! She also happens to be my very dear twin (which means we work together as a team to support each other in our endeavour to help others and share accountability for each other). I'm going to label the whole outcome of this to "fate" as nothing else but that wonderful wizard can ensure such two like-mind individuals can meet up, follow the exact same path AND handle a situation in the exact same way... It was twin at first sight for us! I am truly ecstatic! Jasmine. ❤ -04/07/15.
I am looking forward to being able to make a difference in your life! Until we chat, please just remember that you are an AMAZING person, that you were handpicked and placed to be on this world to overcome obstacles and fulfill goals which only you can, destined to do great things. It will be my honour to make your acquaintance, to guide you in the shadows and see you rise up as you assume your rightful place amongst humanity!

Hai guys my name is Joel (Many of you origninally knew me as Renaenae)! I have been through a lot in my life so I would love to be able to help you through anything! I am here to talk even if you just need a friend to come too. My passion in life is playing music and getting involved in the community! Even if it seems like your problems can't be fixed, I am sure it would help you out to just have an ear to talk to, and I would be more than happy to be that ear - even if you can't fix it, I assure you that you will at least feel somewhat better by just letting it all out. You can never be a burden or a bother to me!
I may not appear online but I am on at least once a day so feel free to message me! I will reply as soon as I am free!
Always remember, you are worth so much! You may not feel it but I promise you, you are worth so much more than you can ever think possible!-Projects-

My other amazing twins: @Politeturtle85
Hello, I'm Jenna. I've been here for 5 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. My main focus on chat topics is anxiety, bipolar depression, DID, and trauma chats. You can find a full list of topics I support down below under categories. I work almost non-stop at my real life job which unfortunately has a huge impact on my availability. For this reason, I am not able to take on long-term members at this time until I am able to find a balance. So, we can have a 1 time chat if I am available. ♥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day with current long-term members♥

Letting you all know I'm going to be away from January 2nd to January 28th beause I'm going on a trip with my family! I probably won't have WiFi at all so I'm very sorry if I can't get back at you during this time! Take lots of care and Happy New Year!---------
Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. In the future I would love to work in a laboratory studying neuroscience and illnesses regarding the human brain! I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.
I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here.
I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too long to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my closest ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more. Right now I have a very tight schedule, and I get aroun 5-10 new chats daily. Therefor my status is mostly offline because I can't take many more chats. I'm mainly working with scheduled chats only. If you need immediate help, I would recommend reaching to someone in the browse listeners page! My responses can take 2-3 days - but I'm always listening!

On a site-wide break until further notice; thank you for staying so patient. Apologies for being unable to take on any chats or projects for the time being. You are amazing, you are loved & you are important. So so important.Hi there, sweet one. My name is Zara and it’s an absolute honour to meet you. I’d love to be your listener, if you’d let me.I understand that you may not be feeling too great right now, whatever it may be about, and I'm so sorry for that. But, it makes my heart happy that you’re on 7Cups right now, because by being here, you’re taking the first step to a journey of getting to where you want to be. That’s a step not everyone can take and you’re brilliant for doing so. I want you to know that your bravery is so appreciated, honestly. You’re an amazing person and an even stronger warrior for coming to this site and seeking help, that takes so much courage.I imagine you may be in a dark place right now. The world is going far too fast and you’re trying to catch up but you can’t. It hurts, the pain is too much to handle. All you want to do is collapse in a ball and stop all these feelings and thoughts and emotions. I may not understand exactly what it's like, but I get it. I really do. And while I can’t get rid of it all for you, I will be here with you to withstand the storm.I won’t be able to magically fix your problems and I won’t pretend I can. But what I can offer you is to be here for you, no matter what, and support you the whole way. I promise to be by your side and offer you my ears to listen, my shoulder to lean on and my heart to share. I firmly believe everyone could use some support, added love and extra guidance, no matter where you’re at. If you decide to press that ‘Leave Message’ button, you need to know this. Our chat is a safe, confidential place for you, wherein no judgement will appear. My time is yours, as you wish to use it. You can vent to your heart’s content, disclose your secrets and deepest thoughts, seek another opinion on a troublesome matter, or even chat about your life. The options are limitless, and the choice is in your hands.Every single person deserves to be heard, has a right to be listened to and is condigned to speak up. Your voice, your soul, YOU are precious. So, please don’t ever feel that you’re not worthy of seeking help, or that you’re a bother, or you’re selfish. I am here because I want to support you; I wouldn’t be here if that was not the case. I’m not a life-changer, not at all. But I do want to bring a smile to your face because, man, you deserve to smile every day. Why? Because you’re you. And that makes you the most brilliant person in the world.And you know what? You’re such a celestially amazing staple in this world. You're a magnitude of stardust, a walking explosion of nebulas, a spectacular sight of constellations. The galaxy shines with your brilliance, day in, day out. You carry the stars in your stride and a spiral of moons in your aura. Keep shining, keep beaming, keep being you. I hope to have the chance to speak to you, lovely.Because puns are what keep the world spinning, here’s one to (hopefully) add a little cheer to your day:You’re living, you occupy space, and you have mass. You know what that means? You matter.✸ “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." ✸Listener Description:Courtesy of @IAmNathan"ZaraSmiles saved me. Without her, I wouldn't be able to cope. She truly means the world to me, I can't even put it into words."✧ A little bit about me ✧I’m a born British gal who doubles as a student and an avid bookworm. Reading is absolutely my life spirit, without a doubt. I’m also a fierce believer in fighting stigma, which I love doing online and offline; it's one of my most passionate topics, so if you want to talk about it, I'm most definitely your gal! My favourite thing to do is volunteering in multiple aspects, starting from charity fundraising and ending at peer mentoring. On top of being a self-proclaimed hug master, I may also be in love with cheesy jokes and an awesome pun aficionado.✧ Listener Roles ✧I joined in September 2014 and thus I've been here for (almost) 2 years now, so I like to think that I know my way around fairly well. I am a Teen Forum Star, Teen Community Star, Teen Chatroom Star, and Peer Supporter, so feel free to send me a PM about anything at all - or even if you just want to make a friend. I love every part of 7Cups but the forums are totally my home, so if you ever want to dive in and learn more, let me know! My two other main roles are as an Appreciation Team Leader and a Stigma Warriors Leader & Founder. I've been dubbed the Appreciation Princess because of my love-spreading ways and I try my best to kick butt at fighting stigma! Also, I'm a Mentor so if you’re looking for one, check out the Mentor page and if I’m taking mentees, feel free to ask for me to take you on.Additionally, I'm a Members' Birthdays Project Founder & Leader, a Verifier, a Featured Listener, a Group Mod, and a Discussion Leader. Another project I'm hugely proud of is running the official 7Cups instagram for the past (almost) year and a half, [creds to @Jessica] now with @Rebecca has joined alongside beautifully. Shoot me a PM anytime, I promise I'm friendly, haha. It'd be an honour to get to know you, sweet one.My display photo is drawn by the sweetest guy in the world, my FabStar, @DHawks. I'm incredibly lucky to know him and so very grateful. <3
