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:
- Jan 21-Jan 24
- Feb 11-Feb 19
- Feb 21-Feb 22
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 spent a lot of my time trying to figure out a formula for my life. I struggled through various bouts of learning, relearning and ignoring the knowledge I thought would help me - to be a better person - until I stumbled across that all the answers I see are within me. I may not have access to them immediately but they are there. And now I am on a path to explore that.
I try to talk to one person at a time. If you send a request, and I don't respond, please do send me a message. I will try to connect as soon as possible. Thanks.

Welcome to my little corner of the universe!
My name is Karina and I am an 19 year old girl who lives for Christ!
On my free time I enjoy taking professional photography, journaling, and calligraphy!
I am here to talk to you about anything! I have lots of experience with pregnancy, depression, self harm, anxiety, eating disorders, rape and abortion recovery. I won't judge. I promise.
I am an adult-teen listener so I can talk to anyone, regardless of age.
Want to talk? Feel free to send me a message and I will respond as soon as I can!
Thank you so much for reaching out!
*Please not that I do not promote or refer abortions*
Hello, I'm Phoebe. I have overcome a lot of things in my life such as self harm, depression and bullying. Even now I struggle with anxiety, managing emotions and being apart of the LGBTQ community but I decided to share my experiences by listening to others. I love TV shows, books, video games and comics and I can talk to you about any struggle you might have when i'm online. If i'm not online, just pop me a message and I will respond when I am.
I'm Bruno and I live in Brazil. I joined 7 Cups on 2014 motivated by the idea that we need to help each other. In addition to my 7 Cups work, I'm a member of the Youth Rights Comission and some students organizations. I'm a former activist at Drugs, Alcohol and Violence Prevention Program. My experise field revolve around LGBT, women's, civil and human rights.
I'd be really happy if you want to chat with me. I'll be here if you want to tell me how was your bad day at the school (or a good one maybe, I hope so!), or how much in panic you are because it seems that nobody is here for you (we are!). I also needed help and I found it right here at 7 Cups. I learned that we can always be stronger than our problems, and I'm here to help you to learn it too!
Availability: I'm currently readapting myself to the 7 Cups scenario. By now, I'm trying to be online all the time and take some chats. You'll see me here on holidays and weekends for sure.
My personal life and 7 Cups: My life allows me to talk about a variety of things. I'm always participating and leading comissions, meetings and a lot of things that allows me to understand more about several scenarios you might be experiencing.
Listeners: As you can see on my badges or statistcs, I don't spend many time on listeners chatrooms or talking to listeners, however I know how important it is. The point is that I prefer to focus on the priority here, and the priority is to support members and guests.
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!

In Jesus Christ, this is the profile, where you won't me.
That beings said, to all those who are reading this, may you find Jesus today, for it is He who can help you really.
If you wan't to talk great! Why not try with him?
He's not gonna Judge, He's not gonna say go away, He'll Just love. where there is more sin, there is more grace, that does not mean I'm encougaring you to sin, but all I ask you is to try you part, and leave the impossible to God.
You know Strength does not comes when we keep quite, when we think He does not exist, or He will not forgive me, or He is not there, He's not gonna accept me, and the list goes on.
Strength comes, when we surrender our lives and our hearts to the Lord, and respect that He will have authority over us.
Trust me, if you dare to Give your life to Jesus, by total surrender. You are accepting, and activing God's love for yourself.
I have been blind, for many years, I was an aethist for more than 18 years, and within that time, I was here too, trying to help people like you.
The truth of it, is not in my badges or my cheer points, but that Jesus Christ helped you through me, but the moment I cut him off, the moment when I was addicted to helping you, by not listening to Him, but worldy ways, I found out that I have lost my peace, and now it was impossible for me, to give you peace.
Thanks to God again for hearing my voice once again, and helping me to surrender to his Love completley.
Friends, I tell you, I've been through anxiety, severe depression, nearly every single day I used to think about suicide, and most prominatly, I became a Hater of myself, my life, and of others.
Every ounce, of love, faith and hope, was gone, my life was in darkness, yet Jesus Christ, the Son of Man chose to save me again.
So here friend, I won't be helping you, but I will do somethign even more greater than that.
I can pray for you.
My God, My God, You My King, as a unfaithful servant, begs for mercy for his sins, I do that to you too. Please have mercy on me, and those who are reading this message. Father we are very weak, we cannot walk in the path of you son, we just keep on tremling down. I know that there has been many a time, when we have not prayed to you, as we have should, many a time, we have not believed you, and had doubts to reighn out heart, than you. We know that we have failed to love you, but not following you, by not going to the church. We were afraid, Father, we throught that you might not accept us. But now, we want to make amends to that. We are hopeless, please Father, give us hope, we are not accepted, anywhere, all of these acceptance are temporary, please accept us into your family. We do not love ourselves, that is why we cut ourselves, we often think of suicide, for we think there is no one for us. Father please lead us to the Cross, Please help me to believe in your Son Jesus, once again. Please be with us that we can find Him, and just surrender everything at His feat. We do not want to sin again, jsut help us Father, to lead a way where there is peace, we are tired of fighting. Father, send us your Holy Spirit that it may protect us, as we try our best to lead ourselves to you. Help us, to abide in your son every single moment of our lives. Just like your son and you are in mine. Father, you are the source of everything, all things that are good comes from you, make us good, and wothy again. Mother Marry Help us, by your love, to reach your son. Where there is a Cross, there is Christ, and there is redemnption, there is love, there is eternal life. Father we want to make a commitment from this moment onward, that we wil choose you, before your creation. Help us in our journey, protect us, nourish us, and be with us. Hallelujah
Our Father in Heaven Holy be your Name, your Kingdom come, your Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven, give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us of our sins, as we forgive those, who have sins against us, and lead us Lord, oh Most Holy Father, not into temptations, but deliver us from all and ever evil. and Grant us peace.
PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL.
That being said, if you still want to talk to me, message me up!
I'm not noramlly available, because I've other things to attend to.
But I'll reply when I'll see your message.
I'll talk to you.
But the only thing that I can help you with Is Jesus, honestly, I would recommend Him to you because He's the one that's working all the time.
He's the one whom I owe my life, He's the one who is the reason why I smile, sing, praise, worship, love, Hes my Joy, He's my source of everything that is good in me.
Without Him I'm nothing.
So I would say He's waiting for you,
Run to Him with all your pain past and present.
Let Him be a part of it.
Your darkness will cease to exist only when you invite the eternal light in your life.
God bless you!
Jesus Loves you!

Beth is married, has a blended family with 5 children, so she understands the challenges of this type of family and relationships. She also understands the pain of divorce and the death of a dream. Beth has an MA in Mental Health Counseling and BS in Psychology with a minor in Organizational Leadership and Management. She is working on state requirements for licensing. All that being said, Beth has a heart for hurting people and is here to listen to what you need to say. Sometimes we don’t want answers, we just need to be heard.

Hi there! I am an ambassador on 7 Cups of Tea, which means I spend a lot of time 'behind the scenes'. I am not online to take chats as often as I used to, but I will always respond to your message, even if it takes a couple of days. For questions or concerns about different teams or badges, you can always reach me by email as well (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I've struggled with really low self-esteem, which lead to depression and other problems in my teenage years. Feel free to talk to me about those things and ask me any question you like; I would really like for other teens to not go through these problems as long as I did. Besides the experiences I had personally, I just got my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, so I am able and willing to support people struggling with all kinds of problems and ages as well, don't be shy! Besides any mental issues, you could also talk to me about anything else. I would like to think that I am really open minded, so just give it a try :)
I like to sing, read, write and eat, and I would really love to travel the world. My motto is "luctor et emergo" , meaning "I struggle and emerge". I truly believe that anyone can overcome their battles. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Glad you are here and I hope you'll find what you're looking for. Take care, Evi.
