I Want to Feel Safe

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,033 People

    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*

    Hard to find a way to get through, it's a tragedy Pulling at me like the stars do, you're like gravity Even if the wind blows It makes it hard to believe How you gonna love, how you gonna feel? How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real? If you lost your way, I...

    Wherever I am whoever I'm with I have to always

    be on guard, doing my best to remain invisible to feel even some level of closure. When I'm being touched it's the worst I feel nothing but fear and panic that they're to hurt me, even if it's a partner which makes things easier seeing in single. I wish things was different...

    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...

    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 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."

    There is a person who is really nice to me,

    actually a couple. I feel so safe around them and want to be around them. I'm so scared thought that if I'm around them too long though they'll grow to hate me and start to hurt me.

    Always and Forever

    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...

    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...

    After years of being uncomfortable

    and reluctant to try new things, I met an amazing guy. I met him in March, but nothing happened between us until June. We got really close, and we dated for a while. He made me feel safe. Even though I felt safe with him, I hated being with him. He was great, perfect even, but I...

    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...

    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
