Hi everyone, my name is Ali!Although I am only 19, I have had quite unique experiences. I have a passion for animals, and aspire to be a veterinarian. Aside from animals, I love music and can usually be found with some playing in the background. I am currently attending college for biology/pre-vet, which keeps me pretty busy, but I try to make as much time as I can to be on here.Feel free to message me anytime! I'll definitely get back to you within a day if I'm not online.My InvolvementAdult & Teen Chatroom Mentor ✿ Forum Mentor ✿ LGBTQ Support Room Leader ✿ Special Events' Organiser ✿ Listener Written Guide Project Leader ✿ Listeners' Birthdays Project Leader ✿ Gamer Outreach Team Leader ✿ Group Mod ✿ Verified Listener's Verifier Team ✿ Social Soldier's Tumblr Team Member ✿ Appreciation Team Member ✿ Welcoming Committee MemberIf you have any questions or interest in the projects I am a part of, or any other project, I would be more than happy to help you out as much as I can.

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. *)
New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time. I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- October 23-28
Otherwise, my normal availability will stand - I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slightly slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.
Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out!
You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me. I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you.
If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
"Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself."
"Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day."
Much love to all,
I am on a break until further notice. I am not taking any new mentees, members or projects; thank you for understanding.
My name is Cadence, but you can call me Cadie if you'd like. I've been here for over two years, so I'd like to say I'm pretty well-versed on the ropes of 7Cups. If you have any questions at all, feel free to let me know.
Not one judgment will be passed here. This is a safe space, where you can free your mind, and let go of the things that may have been bothering you for a long while. I am a firm believer that every single person on this entire world deserves a voice, and deserves to be heard. While I can't solve every problem you're going through, I can be there for you. I won't make you feel unwanted. Please feel free to strike up a chat; I will reply as soon as I can. You've made a huge step by just coming here, and I'm proud of you for taking that initial leap. It's the hardest, and you've done it. It's an amazing feat.

@Iara has been my sister from pretty much day one; she's one of the most amazingly spirited people I have ever met, and I love her dearly; if you speak with her you'll be in good hands.
@Jack is nothing short of a full-fledged superhero. His optimism, encouragement, love and enthusiasm are enough to make anyone smile for ages. Jack is a beautiful person who I wholeheartedly adore; I am forever indebted to him for his support, kindness and grace. I like him more than cake and naps. <3
@ZaraSmiles is a beacon of light and peace for all who come her way. Her elegance and compassion alone are enough to humble anyone. She's insightful, intelligent, sweet as candy, and overall just someone I truly aspire to be like one day. <3

@Rebecca is one of the most intelligent and wonderfully amazing people I've ever met. Her insight brings so much to the table, and she never ceases to amaze me with her grace and finesse. Anyone would be lucky to call her a friend!

Hello there! I am Emma :)Iam a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with personal issues, relationship issues, everyday troubles, and many more. I'm 26, live in California (NorCal), and enjoy yoga, TV, and playing around with my dogs (but I'm not as much of a cliché as you'd think, honestly). My dogs are named Boo and Charlie. Boo is half Pomeranian, half schipperke. I think. I'm not sure :D Charlie is half corgi, half something :P And is a tiny puppy that likes to raise hell (Charlie's the one in the photo with me in the profile image, and Boo is the black one with the headphones, being cute as heck) Iam an undergraduate student (yes, still!), studying African-American Studies. My goal is to get a PsyD and become a clinical psychologist. I also advocate for LGBTQ, People of Color, people with disabilities of all kinds, learning disabilities, and Deaf/HoH. I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. I love to laugh a lot, so if you're feeling down or anxious and need a good relief (and if you like a goofy, quirky personality), come chat with me! If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then you could me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Please note that I do not take chats regarding eating disorders, depression, ADHD, anxiety, or mood disorders.
If you're already talking to me, are about to, or talked to me recently, I'd really appreciate it if you could take a moment and write a teensy review for me, so I could have your feedback and know how I did. Love ya.
