Stuffed Animals Make Me Feel Safe And Less Lonely...

I sleep with a multitude of stuffed animals. Yes, I'm 17 years old, and most people would probably think it childish that I still sleep with stuffed animals, but they make me feel safer at night. When my room is pitch black and everyone else is asleep, I'll take my favorite stuffed animal "Bunny" and cuddle with him. I've had that little bunny since easter of 1993, which was soon after my birthday. I've never been without him. He has a permanent place on my bed or in my arms when I sleep. My stuffed animals make me feel safer and less lonely. I'm not sure why, maybe because they're just so darn cute and cuddly and they'll always be there right next to me and never leave.
I sometimes wish I could be a stuffed animal; I can't help but let myself think that I wish I had someone to hold me all the time, everynight. Yes, my boyfriend does a good job of it when he's over, or when I'm over at his house, but any other time, I long for someone to hold me...but instead I end up holding my Bunny tightly whenever I feel lonely. I like feeling safe and secure, and when I have a stuffed animal, a warm blanket and a comfy pillow, I can acheive that feeling.
I'm not afraid to admit that I still sleep with a stuffed animal at night.
