1. The reading this week spoke of friendship as “the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person.” Have you ever felt this kind of safety with a friend? If so, what was that like?
I definitely feel this kind of safety with my sister. It's as if anything in the world could happen but I would be alright since I am with her.
2. What kinds of things do you think help your friends at the nursing home feel safe with you? Now that you have been visiting for several weeks, what would help to further build up this trust?
I do simple things like smiling, talking in a calm manner, and not intruding their space to show that they are safe with me. I could help build this trust further by vocalizing this in what i say during our conversations.
