As women, we are equipped with this overwhelming sense of trust & courtesy. We as women, have also been given the gift of “spidey sense”, women’s intuition. It is real, trust it! The key is to find a blend to make all of this work together.
If you were in a gas station late at night or parking lot and a man starts approaching you, he doesn’t look like a threat, but you aren’t sure? How close do you let him get to you? What if he only wants the time? What if he wants my wallet? So many scenarios can rush through your mind and before you know it, the man stands before you. If your spidey sense goes off at any time….trust it!
As women, it is time we make are voices heard. We need to speak up! Excuse me, please do not come any closer, you are making me feel very uncomfortable! If this mans intentions are harmless, he will gladly STOP and probably apologize. If the mans intention is harmful, he will keep moving forward, even while saying, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make you feel uncomfortable! Make your intentions clear, loud and precise, and your line has to be drawn so you have enough time to have an exit strategy. One of the best self defense moves we have as women, is having a strong, smart mind! Use it!
