Security - FFF Challenge 4

Fall Fearless & Fly Challenge 4
Headline Prompt:  Security:  What makes you feel safe and secure?  What rattles your sense of security?  Where do you go for comfort and refuge?
Color Prompt: 
Cool colors (blues, greens, violets, etc.) 
Quote Prompt: You can't make a place for yourself in the sun if you keep taking refuge under the family tree.  Helen Keller
 Security - Come to think of it there's a lot that can be said about it! Lot of factors!
For me, as for any lady/girl, a sense of security is part and parcel of life....perhaps one of the most important criteria. It could be from a smallest thing to one of the biggest in life... I feel my home, my place, my family especially my mom gives a firm sense of security. Speaking about my mom, she is a simple person who has spent all her life for her family which not only includes my dad, bro and me but also her parents, her siblings and the everyone else. She is one of the self-less persons I have seen in my entire life! She can identify and sense a person with her intuition, and whatever she has said has always come true. All the same she never expresses any negative feeling or harbour any grudge against anyone. It is only when she reaches the tip of her endurance does she react (which I have felt has it's disadvantages too!) I am very close to her and I think I am following that tradition with my daughter as well. The mother-daughter relationship has a strong foothold in my life; we are very close knit. So my inspiration, my comfort, my refuge has always been my mom. Similarly I have come across a lot of people who feel that they feel more secure where they reside. I have been here in Dubai for 11 years now but it's always my town, my place that gives me a sense of stability and security. I can not state the reason but that is just so. As soon as I reach there, it's like 'MY PLACE'! 

Misunderstandings rattles me...you, with all your goodwill and sense of positivity work on any relationship, any situation and when it backfires without any rhyme or reason, it bewilders me. I believe in the positivity of people...the energy that we speak of...but even after all your deepest, sincere and heartfelt actions people mistake you; that is beyond endurance. I think people often mistake tolerance for cowardice. It's just that we are tolerating; it is not out of cowardice. It's just that we don't wish to hurt the feelings of our near and dear ones. It's said that once the stone is thrown it can never be taken back or it's like the nail, once nailed it leaves a scar. 

If you have read it so far, then thanks...I am usually not the one for long posts! But this topic opened me up, I should say! 

So here's my interpretation of Security:
