I can safely say that this is my third blog post titled “Safety” (see here and here for the previous two). Each time I’ve posted a “Safety” blog, it’s been preceded by a therapy group where we focused on safety.
Yesterday, somebody in my Tuesday “Coping and Healing” group suggested we choose safety as the focus. Here’s what I wrote about my personal experience of safety:
I do my best to create safety in these groups. There is no such thing as complete or perfect safety. I like the phrase ‘safe enough.”
I understand why safety is such a concern for people. When the environment seems paralyzingly dangerous, I sometimes suggest the helpful phrase “It’s safer than it feels.” Sometimes, however, it’s not safer than it feels.
What are your thoughts and feelings about safety, here and now?
Do you see safety or danger in my other recent photos?
When I search YouTube for “safety”, this is the first thing that comes up:
The California wildfires inspired the group’s discussion of safety, yesterday.
Here‘s “Safety Rap.”
Here’s the 2014 Safety Song Winner: “I Wanna Be Safe.”

Thanks to all who helped me create this third “Safety” post and — of course — to YOU. Stay safe.
