Day 3239: What helps you feel safer?

Last night, as I was feeling safer, I asked this question on Twitter:

What helps me feel safer includes:

  • connecting with those I love,
  • expressing my fears without fear,
  • being appropriately cautious,
  • recognizing that perfect safety is not attainable,
  • trying out new things,
  • committing to the present moment,
  • letting go of needless worry,
  • self care,
  • laughing,
  • music,
  • being aware of my surroundings,
  • remembering how I have survived unsafe situations,
  • accepting all my feelings,
  • compassion,
  • forgiveness,
  • self-care, and
  • cats.

It also helps that today is World Kindness Day.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “what helps you feel safer?”

What helps you feel safer?

I believe that gratitude helps people feel safer, so thanks to all who help make this blog-space safer, including YOU!

  1. I kind of feel safe, Ann, and I feel safer when I’m kind.

  2. Family and friends but, sadly, not government and authorities!

  3. I have a sign up outside my office at work that says “This Is A Safe Zone” because I’ve done LGBTQI awareness and sensitivity training, and it’s a sign that anyone dealing with issues around orientation or gender can come to me.
    I think contributing to a safe space helps me feel safer too.

  4. Buddha Harley and Joan Bodai. Animals make me feel safe, can’t really explain why

  5. people I care about and am connected to, along with being in places that are special to me – home, immersed in nature
