The idea that safe spaces are important for us is a known one. But we have been meaning to try and identify what a safe space really means.
How do we recognize a safe space? What must a space have to help us feel safe? 👀
Here are some ideas of how we see safe spaces:
🌟 A space where we can talk without filters, yet not feel the pressure to do so.
🌟 A space where we can be and feel valued for simply being.
🌟 A space where our vulnerabilities can be held gently and sensitively.
🌟 A space where there is respect for all the identities we come with.
🌟 A space of speaking truths.
🌟 A space of responsible showing up. For ourselves. For another.
🌟 A space that invites slowness and affirmation.
🌟 A space that does not invite shaming or attacking.
🌟 A space where breathing comes easy.
