SAFE TO LOVE

SAFE TO LOVE The relationship between love and safety is a profound one, and one that came to me rather late in life. I was a gregarious child that had a natural affinity for easily expressing love, affection, and openness. Perhaps that is true for most children. I can only speak of my own personal experience.
