The Nurturing Safe Room

Hi ABell, I'm very new so I hope I'm doing this right. I have a large stuffed hippo (funny for a woman in her 20s) that I cuddle and pet that grounds me. I also have always found refuge in the world of fantasy! I find that when I need it, I imagine whatever fictional character fits the bill in that moment and talk to them as though they were a friend who was there to get me through it. It helps as I don't have to start from the beginning with a new imaginary friend, and can build off characters I already know!
