*Only taking self-harm chats at the moment! Feel free to PM me for support with this topic! **Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as a story told by you. There are many ups in life as well as many downs but it is up to the author of each story to determine the next chapter.* ~Anya Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year. Many people suffer from mental health issues but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But what’s harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you aren’t struggling. You shouldn’t have to pretend like you are always okay, out of fear that others will judge you or talk about you or think any less of you. No matter what you are dealing with, you are still you. The only thing that matters is that you know your strength and your courage, and let me tell you, everything that you are is more than enough, no matter who you are or what you are going through. So don’t be ashamed of any part of it. Your battles are what shape you into that strong and amazing person. And no matter what anyone tells you, it’s okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. It’s okay not to believe it for a while. It’s okay to struggle. I assure you, you are not alone. Every single one of us goes through that at some point or another. I will always be here to listen to your story, and I will not ever judge you, or make you feel ashamed of what you are going through, or see you as anything less than the wonderful person you are. Because I know that at the end of the day, the one who has the courage to speak about it, is the one who is the strongest of them all. ListenersI want you all to remember that you guys are truly amazing. Spending time on here to help others during your free time shows dedication, compassion, and kindness on your part. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me?

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♥

7 cups intern graduate, verified listener, member of feed team and welcoming committee, forum supporter, peer supporter!
Compassionate. Introvert. Sapiosexual.
I believe that GOODNESS is not just an outcome, it is a PROCESS!!!
To all my member speakers I'd say, "The important thing in life is to believe that while you are alive, it's never too late!" Just have a little faith!!
As a listener, I follow this quote from To Kill a Mocking Bird: "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."
Also, I wouldn't forget to express regard, gratitude & respect to some of my initial speakers I have had memorable listening experiences with. They are Metalhead girl, hypnoticpoison & Brokensmiles.

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.
