King safety v king safety

Of my many bad habits at chess, ignoring my king safety is one of the major ones. It possibly stems from my early study in chess, where I could understand why a material advantage was important (just count on your fingers), but more abstract topics such as long term weaknesses did not stand out as much.

Why method of dealing it with then, was to try and get my attack in first. It turns out that I haven't moved on from this approach as much as I would like, as the following game shows.
