What’s something or someone that makes you feel safe?
I’m lucky because there are several things and people I could choose from. But today, I’ll write…okay, maybe gush, about my biggest leap of faith, Coen.
If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I live in British Columbia and Coen lives in Holland. I always tell him that although I hate missing him, I’m grateful I have someone to miss so much! The feeling of safety he gives me, both physically and emotionally plays a big part in how I feel.
He does all the right things keeping me safe when we’re together. Even when he’s pretending to push me into the Grand Canyon
He looks out for me and makes sure I’m not getting myself into dangerous situations. Even when we’re not together he always checks in to make sure I’ve made it wherever I’m going safely. It feels good to know he cares.
But really, that’s not what’s most important to me. It’s feeling emotionally safe with him that means the most. Coen is kind, compassionate, understanding and loving. He’s an amazing listener who truly cares about how I’m doing. He offers me support and advice and has NEVER put me down for the way I’m feeling. Even if he doesn’t understand why I’m feeling a certain way, he never makes me feel bad about it. I can tell him anything because it’s safe and never makes fun of me for crying! I trust him completely. Even when he’s pretending to strangle me.
As you can see, he was certainly worth the leap.💜
Coen, thank you for always being there for me, even when we’re apart, and for allowing me to show my true colours – even when they’re ugly! Love you💜
