Safety..

Safety is not pointing to faces on a piece of paper.

Safety never comes from a piece of paper.

Safety comes from relationships.

No one learnt to self-regulate without co-regulation.

You can’t do anything when your nervous system is shot to pieces.

That blank face wasn’t calmness it was complete shutdown.

We need connective subjects; art, making, doing, chatting.

We don’t need pictures of feelings, we need to learn through doing and being with people.

Regulation through others is not weakness; it’s validation for our feelings.

It is okay to be who we are.It is okay to take time to get there.

Sitting outside a classroom may be better than the other option, but really is that the best we can do?

(I’m just sorry I didn’t come and get you sooner.x)
