What is Danger?

Danger means something that can hurt us or cause harm. It’s like a warning that tells us to be careful to stay safe. For example, crossing a busy road without looking for cars is a danger because it can lead to accidents. 

What is Insecurity?

Insecurity means not feeling safe or sure about something. It’s when you feel worried or scared because you’re not protected or you don’t know what might happen. For instance, if you’re alone in a dark room, you might feel insecurity because you’re not sure what’s around you.
