I want to feel safe, little rant

I want to feel safe so that I can be alive. I want to be able to eat, drink, sleep and literally anything without doing tons of precautions.

It feels so hopeless. My therapist recommended that I talk to the scared part of me but I honestly think there is no point in that since it is me that feels in danger and not just a part. He also keeps on asking what makes me feel safe but the only thing that does is ocd.

I hate this. I just want to be safe. One does not simply feel safe after trauma but I really want to learn what safe feels like.

I've watched young girls become empowered after learning self defense. Everyone should learn.

Sorry you're struggling.

This is an important point I think. Like, we are teaching the puppy that calm is comfortable, and she is learning to relax (it seems). I once read, ~"How can someone 'be' calm, if they don't know what 'calm' feels like?" I think the same goes for safety. It's not that we don't realize it's never actually safe, but to realize sometimes it is safe. If that makes sense?
