Where is my safe space?

In his Dear Daughter letter, Ferret Steinmetz says –

“I’m not the guard who locks you in the tower. Ideally, I am my daughter’s safe space, a garden to return to when the world has proved a little too cruel, a place where she can recuperate and reflect upon past mistakes and know that here, there is someone who loves her wholeheartedly and will hug her until the tears dry.”

It must be so awesome to know that you can make your mistakes, live your life and still have somewhere to go to. That you don’t have the weight of someone else’s dreams and expectations crushing you; that you don’t have to fight for every thing you want thats out of the ordinary be it your education, your career or your love life.
