What causes more relationship problems than anything else is when safety is not present in a relational connection. Where there is safety, healing, loving and transformation can be experienced. When it’s not there, some of the greatest hurt and damage can be inflicted into people’s lives. We already have tender areas of our hearts that need safety, but when it’s not there when we are vulnerable, it can be so tough to recover from.
One of our greatest passions is to encourage and equip people to establish safe places for people to heal. This means safe families, safe business environments, safe friendships and safe churches. But it takes maturity and a willing to work on yourself in order for safe environments to become solidified. We cannot expect a relationship to automatically be safe; it takes time and intentional investment.
Many people have been subject to environments that are not safe and often downright abusive. Those toxic places do not need to permanently follow us in life. We all have an opportunity to heal from those unsafe places we’ve experienced and establish healthy ones as God shows us the healthy way.
In this episode, we cover the following areas:
- The importance of safe relationships.
- What is the definition of a safe place?
- How can we establish safe relationships?
- Helpful guidelines to becoming a safe person for others.
