I just subscribed. I am identifying with the concept of emotional safety.
Re volunteering. .. That saves me from really bad times because I am out of the house and helping others. I volunteer as much as possible. Currently as a crisis advocate for victims of domestic violence/sexual abuse. That’s usually the field I end up working in for volunteer. Mental health crisis, suicide. That is very weird because I have suffered all my life with mental health issues. I have not experienced domestic abuse or sexual violence, thank God. I do not find these jobs depressing although one would think I would.
