S is for Security

This post is part of the April A-Z Blogging Challenge, wherein participants blog throughout the month according to the letters of the alphabet. For more on the challenge, click here

Note: If anyone wondered, I tagged the blog as having adult content due to a few factors: one, strong language; two, the possibility that excerpts I post may have graphic descriptions of sex or violence and therefore unappealing to some readers. Never fear, though, I’ll be sure to warn y’all if a post of that nature comes up! In the meantime, feel free to read on!

Note: Sorry Patty, no mention of Gage! Not directly, anyway…

Cheers and happy ABC’ing,

Murphy

Everyone finds a feeling of security in their own way. For some all it takes to be reassured is a phone call home to family. Some are comforted by their confidence in their own ability to handle what life throws at them. Some might just need to clear their heads and then face the situation head-on.

Of course, not everyone picks the healthiest of coping methods. Some people hide from the world by escaping to the bottom of a bottle. Some people isolate themselves from the world and control as much of their environment as possible to keep themselves feeling safe. Some drive others away, unwilling to look out for anyone but themselves.

The trouble is, it’s the unhealthy coping methods that get noticed. And yet, somehow, we’re not always able to help when someone hits their limit, when things get too out of control for them to manage. What happens then?

I guess we’ll see, won’t we?

    • I tend to withdraw from others myself and avoid trouble. Not the healthiest, but at least we can recognise it and work to change it, like you’re doing. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
