Beautiful, as always. It is the kind of safety that will “respect you in the morning” after you have been seen to be a bit broken. The kind of safety and support that helps you stand back up after you have been hit. We survive as communities but it does not absolve us from hard work. Well said again sir.

It is a community of people who care about you but see your scars and do not walk away that matters.  Mainer74 has also written on ordeal and that has a similar component.  Without a community, we do not have the tools to heal or remodel.  Those people who will stand with you when you are broken and need to be reforged, as we sometimes do.

We are often made of brittle steel and softer iron and need to be pattern welded anew.  To do this takes more than just yourself, even if the other person is just working the bellows.
