Day 111: Making Others Feel SAFE
Each one of us has its own triggering point of fear that comes from an array of circumstances leading us to feel unsafe and afraid. Most likely the result of these unfortunate occurrences is deep-rooted by our trusting nature toward people. As human beings, we tend to rely on our instinct to trust, but oftentimes people would exploit our vulnerability and kind character.
Trust and safety go hand in hand. Even as young kids we are trained to set our minds to trust our parents to protect us. We put our trust in people who will provide safe haven to our ideas, insecurities, expectations, anxieties, and future plans knowing that these very people will not judge and manipulate us, but rather put significant weight on the trust that was given to them.
A good leader in the workplace, household, and community assures safety for the people by providing a space that is open to communication, empathy, and understanding.
Communicate. Listen. Understand. Deliver.
