Safe space

This won’t be a long post, but it will be a post rife with gratitude. 

I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve felt unsafe or threatened in my life. The majority of those times were really just because I was (am) trapped in my own head. Even when witnessing violence first hand – even when a target of questionable behaviors – I didn’t wholly feel unsafe. This sense of security is entirely because of the people who refuse to give up on me, who have always refused to give up on me. My safety circle seems to have grown in the past couple months, with people I didn’t know before a couple months ago. I’m so grateful for the safe space. 

My mind is dangerous enough without people willing and able to be a crutch for me to lean on.
So thank you to all of you for enriching and protecting my life.
