    Safe And Sound.

    The time I felt safe. Was in my exs arm. I felt protected and loved. Until he cheated. I have him another chance. He blew it. I didn't even comment with a text or a sound. I just let him be him, somewhere else. I'm listening to the song btw :) lol

    Tired of Being Strong

    Seems I've always struggled in life, though I've aways been the one to face the future with hope and give encouragement; but it's hard being strong, putting on that happy, confident face all the time.  I just want someone to take my hand and hold me tight and tell me...

    I Need A Home, A Place To Feel Safe.

    Safe?

    I want to feel safe from myself. I know the steps I can take to be "safe" (ie: stop cutting/burning myself, stop purging, get rid of the hoarded pills, the revolver and ammo.), but can't bring myself to DO them. Thankfully, I am not a danger to anyone else - just...

    I would dream of "feeling safe",

    in emotional terms free from anxiety,pervasive depression. Otherwise...I imagine if one has always felt insecure,well," one can dream."

    Scared of Everything

    I'm scared, scared of everything. I am intimidated by the life itself and all that it brings to me. I find myself holding myself back, just that the Life wouldn't notice me.... I'm sure that if I would get all it's attention, I would be in so much trouble. Oh, how I yearn to...

    I haven't felt truly safe in a long time; not

    since I was a kid. I stress out about every little thing. I would love to have someone in my life who understands this and makes me feel safe enough to share my worries with them without feeling pathetic and weak for worrying about the little things. Someone who has my back and...

    I've only felt safe once in my life.

    I want to feel that again. It might not be realistic to think I'll find that again. But a girl can have hope and dream! *Smiles a half smile*

    Always and Forever

    I wanna feel safe no matter where  I can. I love the feeling of being. It to me is like sitting on the beach looking at the ocean.

    Don't Know How

    I have trouble finding things that make me feel safe. I've had too many things happen, and so I am always scared of what's going to happen next, or how I'll deal with it. I 'look over my shoulder' all the time to see if something's lurking back there, waiting to strike. I know I...
