My safe space — My bedroom

I really feel comfortable in my bedroom.

I share it with my sister. I have lots of pictures on the walls. It’s where I go if I have nothing to do, or if I want time alone. If I was choosing one photo about the safe place I’d choose this one. I like it and it makes me feel something strange and special at the same time.

Special because I am alone and I took a picture of myself and there’s something special about that. And the strangeness — I’m thinking about that. What’s strange about it is that whenever I’m alone I feel comfortable.
