A Safe Space
My wonderful Ballet Buddy 'Peggy' writes a lovely post about what feeling safe means to her on her blog.
Feeling safe is just as important as being safe, sometimes such as in an amusement park ride we trade the feeling of safety for a frisson of excitement and the feeling we are at risk, even if we know deep down the risk is far less than it feels like. But in these cases we play the numbers and follow the actual evidence.
However sometimes we just need to feel safe and the actions of others impinge on that, and impair our feelings of value and belonging.
Being told you are unworthy, broken or being othered can destroy relationships and trust.
