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.â¥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day based on my work scheduleâ¥My InvolvementActive Listening 1Depression Support Team LeaderFeed Team LeaderForum MentorPeer Support LeaderSafety PatrolVerifying ListenersMy Twinderfuls:@asthebeesays@coolvibes@fluffyUnicorns84@Teagan@vivelespatates@wonderfulPumpkin71
*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as aÂ 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.* ~AnyaÂ Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year.Â Many people suffer from mental health issues but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But whatâs harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you arenât struggling. You shouldnât 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 donât 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, itâs okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. Itâs okay not to believe it for a while. Itâs 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 glad you are hereI'm Ame, 20, Indonesia (GMT+7)I am trained active listener, and I'm here to listen and support you with whatever you are going through.We all deserve to be happy, including you, and helping others makes me happy. I would love to listening to you! Please don't hesitate to send me a messageÂ Â and I will reply as soon as possible. Have a good life! YOU ARE AWESOMEQUOTE:"The fact that youâre struggling doesnât make you a burden. It doesnât make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesnât make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we arenât always easy to be around â and thatâs okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things arenât all of who you are and they certainly donât discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness."Â âÂ By Daniell Koepke
Hello lovelies, I'm Anggi. One fun fact about me isÂ I'm aÂ huge book nerd! I think I just love books way too much.Â I know we haven't met yet,Â but I have a feeling that we're going to get along.Â
I think that you matter. I might not fully understand the struggles that you're going through or what you've been through, but I'm willing to listen and try to understand to the best of my ability. I might not have a solution forÂ your problem, but I do know that simply talking about it could make you feel a bit better.
Sometimes all we need is for someone to be there for us:Â to make us feel safe, understood, and lessÂ lonely. I know how helpfulÂ it can be to haveÂ someone who truly listens to youÂ without judgement. I want toÂ be that person for you.Â So, let's chat soon!

Piney is not available as she is off living her life. Many apologies to all the people who I have talked to and since have stopped. I know how rude and selfish that is of me, but it's really for the best of everyone involved. As always, my love goes out to everyone.
Stand firm, and you will win life.

I will no longer be active on the site (not taking chats), however I will still respond to messages ^_^
Hey, I'm Ary.
A-levels student,Â feeling myÂ way to myÂ place in the world. When I'm alone, I like to settle in a couch and listen to soundtracks, especially Studio Ghibli's. I have way too many interests to possibly keep up with (gaming, knitting, reading, drawing etc. etc. ) but meh, I like it that way.
For the most part of my teenhood I was greatly affected by depression (dysthymia) and addiction. My friends are who kept me afloat, and I hope I can be one to you. There's still so much more for meÂ to learn aboutÂ listening, and I do have problems of my own, but I'll try my best to help you in any way I can I think everyone needs and deserves to be loved and heard <3

Hi there! Welcome to 7 Cups. I am a trained Active Listener, a Christian and a college student who has most likely been through anything you can think of.Â
I will/canÂ absolutely listen to:
Depression/blues/hormones issues, including bipolarÂ
Christian Life Issues (not on the formal list, but Iâm happy to help)
Chronic Pain (we can talk through acute pain/random aches too, but I cannot guarantee success)
Grief (as long as you havenât ended the life of an animal through euthanasia or harmed/killed the person you miss)
Loneliness (bored/lonely banter is a specialty)
I can listen to these, but canât guarantee success:
Relationship Stress, including Breakups
Healthy Living (including Eating Disorders and Exercise Motivation)
Please do NOT approach me about these unless you want to feel sorely disappointed:
Â Attention span issuesÂ
Parenting (including perinatal issues)
No weekday/super-early/super-lateÂ contact please. Due to family responsibilities and selfcare duties, I am only available on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, American CST time. This includes Automatic Welcome responses and âemergencies.â If you need support Monday through Friday and in the morning or evening, either Browse Listeners, contact a loved one, utilize a crisis resourceÂ or go to the hospital .
HI There Nice to Meet You, I am kerry!Â I would like to say how brave and strong you are right now for even taking the leap to come here the first step in reaching out for some support and a listening ear from me, I have been in my own therapy so I know how dificult it is to be vulnerable and fragile I know how tough it can be to be open about whats going on but I want you to know that I have been on the other foot I have experienced my own fare share and alot in my life and I know how difficult it is to even come here and I want to thank you for making that step.Â
Â On the 27th FebuaryÂ 2016 I began my journey beingÂ as an Active ListenerÂ providing emotional support to my members weÂ build a safe confidential environment within our chats so my members are able to fully express themselves. We build a good trusting rapport that provides a space for my members to feel comfortable to talk and for me to listen in a compassionate way we work together to make sense of the experiences my members are facing so they are able to see in a clear way and able to understand themselves a lot better. I provide genuine care support with a unique empathetic approach that my members are able to reach to me for consistent support and encourage my members to find other healthy ways of coping better with their struggles.I help them recognise there achievements and we build upon goals that they can work towards building a better positive path in which I support them throughout.Â I have learnt alot over my time as a Listener and the kind of difficulties my members may face and it helps me to understand the complexities of these difficulties and know that every experience is different so I am very open minded and donât judge a person or any situation I explore and gain a deeper understanding of what one self is going through and how they are really feeling. I have a deep insightful mind where I am self aware of myself which means I am able to easily empathetically connect with others naturally on a deep level. You are not alone in this journey lets grow together <3 thank you for reading lovelys.Â I have a Diploma In Bereavement and Grief Counselling I haveÂ a Diploma in Counselling SkillsÂ and I am working on my personal therapy and furthering my study as one day I want to be a counsellor/therapist.Â
My goal is to listen and not assume, understand and not judge,
because the most important things to know is empathy and kindness.
A little about me: I'm 22 years old currently, but an old soul in-depth,
I'm a fond writer & reader of poetry, I love spending time with family.
Also putting together a book of poems based on past, present, future.
I'm not a perfect listener, but I have my own fair share of life experiences-
that have definitely shaped me into the person I am today.
I listen to as many as I can, so replies may vary. I try and keep the balance.
Online = I'm notÂ too occupied by requests and I am free to a few more at one time.
Busy = I am taking at least 3 requests+ and it's not recommended to take on too much.
Offline = I'm probably asleep, tired or I need a little break from the site.
I like to have 30-45 minute conversations, but of course, I'm open to scheduling longer talks with people.
if I don't answer your request, it's because I don't want to take on too much at any one time, like many on here.
taking on too many requests can lead to stress, and I want to be the best I can be in terms of listening skills.
Thank you for taking the time to read all of this. I hope to speak with you.
