    Where's your safe place? Where do you belong?

    This is where I belong: https://hanzhen71317.wordpress.com/2...here-i-belong/

    What about you?

    8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
    9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
    10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand
    so that we would walk in them.
    (Ephesians 2:8-10, NASB)

    In my room.
    If you don't believe in true love then please don't tell me not to believe in it because I believe it to be real.
    I'm a self proclaimed troll tracker.
    I am hopeless...thankfully though Jesus's grace is sufficient for my weakness.
    I have a tendency to speak through the spirit if you can't handle that get some ear plugs.

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    Absolutely my friend, away from work and at home. I have started to use your saying at work, someone asked how I was doing today and I said that I was 'living the dream'. He said he was living a nightmare. I also told him that maybe I was lying. That made him laugh.

    at home as well.. especially after terror yesterday (if you ever heard that) staying at home will be a good option
    Phillipian 2:3-5
    Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
    In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus

    What allures and arouses the heart we can't figure out
    But it's the quickest way to account for what we prize
    And are most proud about
    These gods make promises but always lie to us
    The kinds of lies that says they'll keep us safe and satisfy us
    We blame the lies outside of us
    But it's the lie that lies inside that captures the depth of desires and false messiahs

    I feel safest when I'm standing at the end of someone else's bed, breathing heavily while watching them sleep.


    Jokes. My safe place is in my kitchen pantry, where no comfort food is safe. Lol.

    I went to the site you posted and it looks like a classroom. The person posting that site is a teacher , who evidently only feels safe in front of her students.
    In that context, I don't need a safe space because I can be myself all the time. I'm comfortable with who I'am, if someone disagree's or doesn't like me, well, that's OK with me, I'm not threatened by people not thinking like me.

    Australians are the ones you have to worry about. I don't know if America took this true story to make it into a horror movie but apparently Wolf Creek was based on a true story in Australia. Personally, I haven't seen it myself but I've heard it's quite a scare.

    During WWII, the German Afrika Korps were more afraid of facing Aussie regiments than anybody else. True story.

    If you scare Nazis, you must be scary.

    Perhaps you are thinking of a "Safe Zone," the area so designated in many college campuses, an area where it is not allowed to talk about anything controversial for fear of hurting somebody's feelings.

    A safe place is a concept as old as human fear and need for comfort. My safe place is here in this room I'm sitting in, in front of my computers.
