your safety is one of the most essential aspects of your wellbeing. without safety, you cannot feel comfortable or at ease to simply exist. here are some tips on how to stay safe and vigilant in situations where you may feel vulnerable.
- be aware of your surroundings. when you are in a new location, or even a familiar one, make sure to take in your surroundings and become familiar with who and what is around you. try to stay off your phone if you are walking alone so you can be fully aware of the things going on around you. if something feels off, don't be afraid to reach out for help if there are other people around you.
- trust your instincts. if something feels off about a situation or location you are in, trust your gut feeling and stay alert for any movements or people that catch your attention. your intuition is almost always right. if you have a self defense keychain or keys, make sure to have it out and easily accessible as you make your way out of the situation. if something feels off about someone you are talking to, don't be afraid to be rude to cut the interaction short. you never know when your instincts could save your life.

- never let strangers know you are alone. if someone you don't know asks if you're alone whether you're traveling, out at the park, or at home, don't be afraid to lie and tell them that you're waiting on a friend or that someone else is there with you. if they learn that someone else knows your whereabouts or can be there to back you up, they are less likely to target you.
stay safe and sexy. you are protected. you are untouchable.
