What safe feels like
“That you taught me what safe feels like” are the final words uttered from Rory, one of the main characters, to Dean, her first boyfriend, in the last episode of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
Today I want to reflect the thought back to you to consider if you are in safe relationships, where you feel accepted, valued, calm, unthreatened etc. This is often referred to as emotional safety. Everyone deserves to be in safe relationships.
Consider the relationships you are in with family, friends, co-workers, romantic partners, neighbors, etc.
It’s important to try to surround yourself with positive people. While it may be hard to remove yourself from the situation of toxic relationships, you could consider. Who you surround yourself with has effects on your mental health and well being. Choose wisely. The power is yours.
