Coming, going, the waterbirds
don't leave a trace, don't follow a path.
I'm Charlie and I'm trained, verified and experienced as an active listener for both adults and teens. I like to support people who are struggling with something. Also people who aren't struggling with anything. And people who aren't sure whether they're struggling or not.
The poem is said to be by Eihei Dōgen, a Japanese poet who wrote it around eight hundred years ago. I don't know why I like it. I just do. My photo is the moon shining on the sea. There's some darkness and some clouds there but the light of the moon shines on everything. I like this too.
If I'm online, please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline or busy, please feel free to send me a message so we can arrange a time to chat. No topic of conversation is off-limits for me, not even difficult and distressing topics.
Thank you for reading my profile. I'm glad you are here!In an emergency or a crisis: If you are in an emergency or a crisis—for example, if you are at immediate risk of suicide or other serious harm—7 Cups is not the right place, because we cannot deal with emergencies or provide crisis counselling.

Schedule: I don't have a fixed schedule. I'm online some weekdays between about 4:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. US Eastern Time. In the UK this is 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. On other days and at weekends I'm often online too, but at times that are not predictable. If you message me or tag me in a forum I'm usually able to respond within a day or two.

*Please make sure to look at the topics I discuss before sending a request, as I do not discuss all topics. I try to discuss on topics I have first-hand experience with or have knowledge about. Thank you for understanding :)
Hi there! My name is Jen. I'm sorry for the long introduction but please read to make sure I'm the best listener for your topic(s).
My main focus is on relationships and focus on finding practical solutions to the issues. I only work with current/active romantic relationship and friendships, therefore I DO NOT work with work/family relationships, crushes or breakups. I also DO NOT work with sexual issues.
My other focus is weightloss and exercise motivation (I do not work with eating disorders), I have personal experience with both and happy to offer some helpful tips with that.
If you don't want to discuss any issues- just want a friendly/chill chat feel free to message me.
I consider myself a friendly and kind person, but please if you message me don't expect me to hold the entire conversation as I'm here to listen and offer help, not to entertain. If you have multiple topics you want to discuss please make sure they fall under relationship stress, exercise motivation or weight management as those are the only topics I work with.
I'm sorry if I do not work with your topic, please go to general chat to connect with a listener or go to browse listeners to find a listener that works with your topic(s). Thank you for reading this and hope to chat with you soon :)
Am a Shadow! I walk with you, watch over you, watch you sleep and watch you awake to new dawn and disappear once you find your self and your soul! i will walk till you find the real self :)
LIfe is like a staircase...you look up and imagine yourself to be there at the 'summit'',you aim for great heights. But you forget that climbing heights require endurance,requires breathing,requires the willpower to take it step by step,foot by foot,the more you climb you wana look down and see how much you have done and yet how much more you need to be there where you want. You decide you got to be at the summit! you decide you got to be in control!
But most times you forget that you have to keep the lamp burning...the flame has to be fuelled by warm air! the bellows have to keep the furnace running!!!
There is no easy way! There are no escape routes! There is no excuse! FAith! Belief! THE will will take you there! You got to look into yourself and find inspiration. you got to pass that one moment when fear is totally on you and believe me you will feel bliss,once you have overcome that one second of extreme fear! Dont believe me? Try diving from the sky or diving into the sea! the moment of fear when you are about to leap out is when fear totally makes you numb! Once you jump its over! Fear doesnt make any sense anymore! there is the unknown before you! trust me the thrill of exploring the unknown takes over and dismantles any fear whatso ever! :) Make the choice my friend! Life is to be lived on! Make the choice! :)

Hello lovelies, I'm Anggi. One fun fact about me is I'm a huge book nerd! I think I just love books way too much. I know we haven't met yet, but I have a feeling that we're going to get along. 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 for 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: to make us feel safe, understood, and less lonely. I know how helpful it can be to have someone who truly listens to you without judgement. I want to be that person for you. So, let's chat soon!
