A safe space is only possible with compassion for others, and a commitment to interpreting what people say generously and attempting to accept unconditionally. For a safe space to be a safe space, you and the people who compose the space must agree to try to uplift each other, and reinforce the validity of what their identity feels like. A safe space, at its center, is exactly what it sounds like: A space where you are wholeheartedly, unreservedly safe. I hope all of you find, create, and inhabit many safe spaces in your life. May they be as vibrant, creative, and strong as you.
