THESE STATS SUCK!!!
We live a beautiful world, great places to see and destinations that are sought after. As we sail from land to land we stop and take in the sights and sounds. Some of us visit the country side and hike the mountains, speak with the locals and even take in dinner with a few. Others seek out the local pubs, tasting some of the finest and best draft that your area offers. Others yet, will head a shore with empty bags only to return with their arms completely weighted down with fruits, fresh veggies and little trinkets from the local merchants. This new land that we are excited to see is filled with so many new smells, sights and things to taste and touch…our sensory system is on overload.
Do you notice when you are being followed? Did you happen to feel when the person took our money from our bag handing off your shoulder? What about the person who slips something into your drink as you turn around to take a selfie with the local bartender? You really need to go pee, someone is standing by the public washroom, but you don’t give it a second thought. As a female, you are walking down the street, you look away from males as they pass you.
Talking (writing) about abuse, assault, rape…any of it can be a very difficult subject. As you see from the stats it is real and it is around us. I have been waiting to cover this heavy topic. This will be the introduction to more, I will answer the questions in the paragraph above, give you more tips and techniques that I have learned over the years and answer question that you may have.
Please note…There is NEVER any guarantee that the tips and techniques will work, but I will provide as much information as I can, including images and videos. You do not need to be fit, young or flexible to save your own life…The first topic we will cover is “Understanding and Awareness”. Till then be safe!
It’s your LIFE and it’s worth fighting for, NEVER give up!
