Do you have a very strong memory of feeling safe as a small child?

Asked by longgone (17269points) October 26th, 2015

I discussed this with friends recently, and we found that all of us have a certain memory which brings us back to being very young, feeling as safe as possible. For all of us, these were particulary powerful memories, and we couldn’t remember feeling as safe since.

I’m wondering: Are we just happy to have been loved, or might this feeling of safety be something children actively look for and do not forget easily?

My memory is that of lying in bed between my parents, falling asleep there after waking up from nightmares.
