I Like to Feel Safe and Secure

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 359 People

    I didn't always feel safe growing up.

    My sister was a bully to the point where her abuse threatened my life. I also dealt with bullies in school. This has left me pretty damaged. I have a lot of fear in my life. I have trust issues (and some other general issues). So I love feeling safe. I love my friends that make...

    Doernbecher Children's Hospital...

    The place I feel safe and secure at is Doernbecher Children's Hospital. There are many reasons I feel so safe at Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Is it is the place I went when I was first newly diagnosed with leukemia. This hospital has become my comfort zone. I know all of the...

    I don't know who is gona be angry with me next.

    Who is monitoring me in the background in the dark. Who would judge me for what I did. Who would tell me I'm pathetic unworthy. I d give up anything to stay away from those people.

    I'm Not So Adventurous

    Well, maybe I was more so when I was younger but these days I value safety, comfort, and security more than anything. Being with my family and knowing all is well with them, being able to hold them and hug and be close...that is my happiness. I worry a lot about the terrible...

    With You

      I know I am safe when you are there. I know that I just have to tell you I am feeling insecure and you will do everything within your power to make me feel better. I know you love me and that I am safe and secure in your love.

    Dad

     My dad makes me feel this way. I guess because, if there was an actual emergency, he would know what to do. I feel safe in that knowledge. Also, so many times I have been *so close* to getting hurt, and he has come to my rescue. So many situations would have turned out...

    I Need To Feel It (Story 98)

    I feel safe with my dad. I used to feel safe and secure with my mother's boyfriend, but never got close to him again after he did what he did to me. It became hard to trust anyone after that. I don't feel safe and secure with my husband very often. I want to feel, secure...

    The Places I Feel Safe Are:

    With my stuffed animals, while communicating with God, hugging my mum, in the bathroom, in my bed, when I sleep, when I daydream, with my imaginary friend (I know, I know), when I am indoors, when my parents stop fighting, When people aren't mad at me, when people aren't staring...
