Tuesday’s Timely Tip #23
In the last tip we talked about the importance of being aware of your surroundings and how that awareness can help you to be one step ahead in the self-protection game. But there’s always the chance that you’ll still be approached by an assailant. So being prepared is also important. Since you first want to attempt to flee, if possible, know that it’s okay to yell and scream to get others’ attention. Yelling “Get back!” and “I don’t know you!” will help to alert those around you that you’re being accosted (as opposed to you’re having a fight with your boyfriend). We’ll talk more about being prepared, fleeing and fighting back next time!
