Being attacked is something that can scar you for life, both mentally and physically. Whether you’re working late shifts at a gas station or you’re uncomfortable with your long walk home after dark- there are plenty of times that the world may feel like an unsafe place. That doesn’t mean you have to be unprotected if anything terrible happens.
Here are the most important things to remember if you’re under attack:
Keep As Much Distance As Possible
The most important thing you can do is survive. Put as much space as you can between you and your attacker. Get as far away as you can so that you can find help or get to an area where your attacker won’t be able to access you.
