Hi there! I'm Luke, and I'm 32 and from Georgia in the US. Happy to be here and to lend a listening ear to those in need. I have experience with parenting, family-related stress, and relationship stress and am a member of the LGBTQ+ community, but please feel free to reach out with anything on your mind and we can try to talk it out.
Please don't hesitate to reach out whenever. I'm on the east coast in the US, so be mindful of possible timezone differences. I also have a family and a job, so bear with me if I don't get back to you immediately. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are particularly busy for me personally, so I may be extra slow to respond, if at all, on those days. Regardless, I will try to get back to you as soon as I can, even if it says I'm offline.Involvement

Hi, I'm Chloe. I'm glad you found me on 7 cups of tea. I'm a verified active listener and I'm here to support you. Ihave been through a lot of hard times and I feel everyone should have someone they can to talk to in these times of need .I found venting out to someone completely anonymous can be very effective in such situations. I'm happy to help with any problems, no matter how big or small they may seem. I look forwards to hearing from you and hope I can make a difference in this world.
If I'm online, please feel free to message me or leave a message if I am offline and I will get back to you as soon as possible.Glad to have you here!
Thank you :)
I am Misty.I am a trained and verified active adult and teen Listener, and I am very glad you found me on 7 cups of Tea. **** ~ ***** * ***** ~ *****I am happy to listen to you on many topics. I have experience of lots of different areas - anxiety, depression, bi-polar and mental illness, families and relationships, love, school, college or work related problems, financial stress, healthy living, food, diets, eating disorders, I can also offer support for chronic pain, illness and disabilities. I am part of both the adult and the teen listening team, (and yes I can still remember being a teen lol) and I also offer long term support to those that I can and who are in need.
I am happy to take chats on Coronavirus CoVid19 wuhan and 7 Cups has a whole category of forums devoted to the topic here:-https://www.7cups.com/forum/QuarantineSupportCoronaVirusCoVID19_201/If I am not online then you are welcome to leave me a message - but please tell me what you want to talk about so we can get off to a flying start. I will get back to you when I am next able, but please bear in mind that I get a lot of messages and I will reply to the most urgent first so if you just say hi, do you really just want a hi back?At weekends my response will be slower as that is usually my time off from 7Cups, and I may not respond to new requests till Monday.
I hope you understand that. We all need time for ourselves to recharge our batteries and relax. ONE STEP AT A TIME"We all have different size footsteps that we leave behind on our journey through life.
Sometimes we can change the size of our footsteps, the imprint, the impact, the direction.
Sometimes our footsteps land on rock and they do not show, or they land on sand and stay for a while,
Other times they get washed away by massive oceans or powerful waves.
But each and every footstep is important in so many ways.
Ways that we may not even know about.Watch your step, think about your steps, plan your next step, and the rest will follow." Listening ... one step at a time
Butterflies are a symbol of hope that we can all change from a small
brown grub into a beautiful amazing butterfly! One step at a time!

Hey! Is anything making you worried? Are you facing difficulties in general? Random thoughts running through your head? For whatever reason, feel free to message me. I'll gladly listen to you any time!
Hello there! I'm Dream (she/ her) , it's so nice to meet you! I am a Verified Listener here, on 7 cups -which basically means that I have been verified by the community based on my commitment to active listening skills and quality chatting! I am extremely passionate about mental health and I am a big supporter of the opinion that we should all fight to prioritize it! I love supporting people and helping them go through difficult times. I also enjoy listening to others or just observing them! That being said, don't ever hesitate to send me a message! I promise I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I am a Peer Supporter as well, which means that I can provide support to my fellow listeners after a difficult chat.
I am also a Long- term Listener, which means that I can offer long- term support to members who feel like they need it and a Team Member of the Anxiety Support community!
Right now, I mainly work with offline messaging, where both the member and I respond as soon as we are available. I also do scheduled sessions. (I do not take chats about domestic abuse, bullying or eating disorders.)
I'm also trying to be more active in our community, which gives me the chance to get in contact with so motivated and honestly amazing people!
I'm so happy I got to meet my two amazing listener twins: @Dimara: You are one of the most incredible people I know. Determined, funny, strong, sweet, compassionate, thoughtful... I could just go on forever, naming your qualities. You are the greatest friend one could ask for, thank you for everything! <3 @TheAtticusFinch: Atticus, you are such a sweet human being... Your motivation and your love for hard work never fails to inspire me. You offer so much to our community, you are a wonderful listener and, most important of all, person. <3To every amazing human being reading this: Please, remember that there are people who care about you and want to be by your side (I am one of them). You have so much power inside you, don't ever forget that.
Lots of love and positive vibes for you!
Currently not taking any new member chats <3 Hey there, my name is Mara. It is so lovely to meet you!I am a dogmom who studies science, loves art, animals, dancing and partying and especially helping others. I am also a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and a very openminded person.
For those who are interested, I am a very spiritual person. I'm extremely interested in astrology (pisces sun - scorpio moon), do tarotreadings, meditations... in my free time and my room is also full of candles, crystals, other witchy things and art! I am a very emotional introvert, but also an extremely open and loud person around people I trust. I am someone who laughs at literally everything and always tries to see the positive in things.
I became a listener because my mental health has had its ups and downs the last few years as well, since a lot happened in a short matter of time. I know the importance of having a safe and judgemental-free space to talk in and how it feels to have no one to talk to. This made me so passionate about mental health, spreading kindness and positivity and supporting others; all this motivated me to provide that to others! My current roles:
- Verified listener: I have been verified for active listening skills and quality chatting
- Long-term listener: I offer long-term supportive listening, to give you a sense of security, stability, and confidence and to support you in your journey to improvement
- Chat Support: I can offer you support with difficult ongoing chats
- Peer Support: I offer support to fellow listeners after a hard/triggering chat
- Teen Chatroom Star: You will often see me around in the Teen Listeners room. My role is to moderate the room and to make sure it stays a safe and positive environment. I am also there to answer questions, to provide resources and to manage chat situations
- Safety Patrol: I am able to flag profiles that violate the rules
- Translator: translate to German, French and Dutch
- Team member of the bipolar, schizophrenia & psychosis support community To members: Everyone visiting my profile or reaching out to me is accepted and welcome. I want you to know that you and our chat is safe with me. I want to support you and listen to you during your hard times. Together we can fight this. You are so strong. 'Our current situation isn't our final destination'
<3 LGTBQ+ and questioning friendly
<3 Every beliefs and religion friendly
<3 Mental health friendly
<3 Kink and fetish friendly
<3 Teen pregnancy / sexual assault friendly
<3 DID and personality disorders friendlyI only have a few personal boundaries to keep chats comfortable for both of us:
- I do take sexual chats, as long as it stays appropriate. There is a difference between sex chat and seeking support with sexual issues.
- Sexual abuse: please don't share too much details. I do take chats with that topic, but my priorities are your feelings and supporting you at the moment. All this being said, please don't hesitate to leave me a message. I will come back to you as soon as possible. My chatsessions last 45 minutes if general request or personal request when online, and 60 minutes if it is scheduled. I work with scheduling times but also with offline chatting.Schedule a chat below (only works on 7 Cups site)Always feel free to ask me more info about 7 Cups in general, long-term support, becoming a listener etc...
<3 To listeners:
Feel free to send me a message anytime if you need Chat Support, Peer Support, if you need anything/have any questions or just want to be friends!Currently not taking any mentees, because I want to become fully comfortable in my role first and put my focus on TL or CS first.My listener triplets are @TheAtticusFinch and @DontFearToDream <3
@DontFearToDream: Thank you for being such a supportive listener twin (triplet), and most important being an amazing friend. You truly are a bestfriend to me.

"I'll reach out my hand to you, I'll have faith in all you do, just call my name, and I'll be there." Thanks for reaching out! That is not easy to do and very brave. I am a trained Verified Listener, member of the Listener Verifier Team, and Peer Supporter. I will not judge you, as I have struggled with being judged. You are welcome to talk to me about real things you face, and I will do my best to ease what can be such great pain. I take most subjects, including specific ones such as airplane/flying anxiety, as I have a lot of experience with flying. One subject I am not great with right now is the fear of death of loved ones. My only requirement in any chat is that it remain unabusive and appropriate. And I like sharing music and lyrics, too! I like a wide variety of genres. :) Music is therapeutic and can help us articulate our own feelings!"In our darkest hour, in my deepest despair, will you still care? Will you be there? In my triumphs and my tribulations, through our doubts and frustrations, in my violence, in my turbulence, through my fear and my confessions, in my anguish, in my pain, through my joy and my sorrow, in the promise of another tomorrow? I'll never let you part. And you're always in my heart." That's one of my most favorite songs :)"Life's so dark when every day is a struggle / It's not your choice, there's no escaping it / Don't let your mindset become what controls you / Speak right now, and make the choice to grow / Everybody gets high, everybody gets low, life can be such overdose / Up on the mountain, I see down below, it's easy to lose yourself, I know / Can't hear what you're shouting, I'm deaf to your show / It's easy to lose your self-control in the in-between / Why go out and see the world on fire? I won't let pain get in my way, I can't have silence claiming me, we have strength in numbers to get us through the day / This is a war we're gonna win."I'm happy to share all these songs with you and more! Sometimes when we don't feel "seen" or "heard," hearing a song can do that for us. My spirit twins are Kristen Wiig, Kristen Bell, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Underwood. If I could be friends with them, I would jump at the chance! :)

When I am online, I am available to take member chats.

When I am offline, I am not on 7cups. You can leave me a message, and I will respond to you when I come back to 7cups.Chatting Style
During an hour chat, I'm here to listen and support you, yet I can't provide you any advice. After the chat, we can set up a time to talk again.I only talk with a member at the same time, so when I'm talking with a member, other members have to wait me or set up a time to talk.
English isn't my first language, and I'm not really good at English, so I have some grammar mistakes and a little bit meaning mistakes. Maybe I delay responding to you because I need to check the dictionary if I don't know those words. My first language is Cantonese, and I also speak Mandarin, Taiwanese and English, and I type Chinese and English. If you are a Chinese speaker, feel free to message me.Chatting Topic
