My beautiful wife is @magnificentBeauty56!
Welcome and thank you for visiting my page! My name is Nick if you didn't already get that from my username, and I have a bachelor's degree in social work, finishing with a minor in criminology. I am currently a Probation and Parole Agent for my state's Department of Corrections. I help them reenter society after being incarcerated and I continue to supervise them throughout their supervision period. I hope to one day be a PREA Investigator or a Federal Probation Officer. Â Have a wonderful day, and remember: deep breaths, you got this!
Hello! I am so glad you are here. You have taken the first step in your own self-care and, for that, you are amazing.
I believe in the healing power of being listened to. I know that the fundamental thought of just being listen to may seem like it isn't very healing, but quite the contrary is true. When you are listened to, you feel: empowered, understood, connected, real, relieved. These are just some of the powerful feelings you might have. I am more than happy and excited to be able to help you on your journey of happiness (whatever it is that that means to you).
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you feel more comfortable or if there is something that I do that does not feel helpful; I love to grow and learn and I cannot do that without
Welcome to your journey to happiness!

I'm Charlie and I'm trained, verified and experienced as an active listener for both adults and teens. I like to support people who are struggling with something. Also people who aren't struggling with anything. And people who aren't sure whether they're struggling or not.
The poem is said to be by Eihei DÅgen, a Japanese poet who wrote it around eight hundred years ago. I don't know why I like it. I just do. My photo is the moon shining on the sea. There's some darkness and some clouds there but the light of the moon shines on everything. I like this too.
If I'm online, please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline or busy, please feel free to send me a message so we can arrange a time to chat. No topic of conversation is off-limits for me, not even difficult and distressing topics.
Thank you for reading my profile. I'm glad you are here!In an emergency or a crisis: If you are in an emergency or a crisisâfor example, if you are at immediate risk of suicide or other serious harmâ7 Cups is not the right place, because we cannot deal with emergencies or provide crisis counselling.

Schedule: I don't have a fixed schedule. On most weekdays I'm online sometime between 4:30Â a.m. and 8:30Â a.m. US Eastern Time and between 3Â p.m. and 6Â p.m. US Eastern Time. In the UK this is 9:30Â a.m. to 1:30Â p.m. and 8Â p.m. to 11Â p.m. At weekends I'm often online too, but but at times that are even less predictable.

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-

Hello my name is Anna and I am a twenty-two year old biology healthcare and neuroscience student in Wisconsin. I am getting my degree in genetic counseling. I have always been a listener to those in need and I hope to continue to be so for the rest of my life. I have experience with anxiety and depression as well as other mental illnesses. In addition I am a trained sexual assault victim advocate and human trafficking advocate. I know first hand what it's like to live with anxiety and panic attacks. I know life isn't always easy and I want to be there to walk in your shoes if even for a short time. You'll never walk alone.

On a site-wide break until further notice; thank you for staying so patient. Apologies for being unable to take on anyÂ chats or projectsÂ for the time being.Â You are amazing, you are loved & you are important. So so important.Hi there, sweet one. My name is Zara and itâs an absolute honour to meet you. Iâd love to be your listener, if youâd 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 youâre on 7Cups right now, because by being here, youâre taking the first step to a journey of getting to where you want to be. Thatâs a step not everyone can take and youâre brilliant for doing so. I want you to know that your bravery is so appreciated, honestly. Youâre 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 youâre trying to catch up but you canât. 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 IÂ get it. I really do. And while I canât get rid of it all for you, I will be here with you to withstand the storm.I wonât be able to magically fix your problems and I wonât 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 youâre at.Â If you decide to press that âLeave Messageâ 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 heartâs 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 donât ever feel that youâre not worthy of seeking help, or that youâre a bother, or youâre selfish. I am here because I want to support you; I wouldnât be here if that was not the case.Â Iâm 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 youâre you. And that makes you the most brilliant person in the world.And you know what? Youâre 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, hereâs one to (hopefully) add a little cheer to your day:Youâre living, you occupy space, and you have mass. You know what that means? You matter.â¸ âOur greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." â¸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."â§ A little bit about me â§Iâm a born BritishÂ gal who doubles as a student and an avid bookworm. Reading is absolutely my life spirit, without a doubt.Â Iâm alsoÂ 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!Â My favourite thing to do is volunteering in multiple aspects, startingÂ fromÂ charity fundraising and ending atÂ peer mentoring. On top of being a self-proclaimed hug master,Â I may also be in love with cheesy jokes and an awesome pun aficionado.â§ Listener Roles â§I joined in September 2014 and thusÂ I've been here for (almost) 2 years now, so I like to think that I know my way around fairly well.Â I am a Teen Forum Star, Teen CommunityÂ Star, Teen Chatroom Star,Â 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 toÂ kick butt at fighting stigma!Â Also, I'm a Mentor so if youâre looking for one, check out the Mentor page and if Iâm 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 runningÂ the official 7CupsÂ instagram for the past (almost) year and a half, [creds to @Jessica]Â now with @Rebecca has joined alongside beautifully.Â 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
