TIP OF THE WEEK

Keep Your Distance! Listen to your gut instincts. Predators prey on your not wanting to seem rude and get into your space – within striking distance because they know you are overriding the signals that are telling you to fight, or back up and get away. Second, keep your distance. When someone enters your personal space – pay attention to that. Either back up or tell the person they are too close. If they do not respond, you know you may have an issue. Third, act as soon as you think you are in danger. Whether that is yelling, running, fighting or using a personal alarm or pepper spray to act as soon as possible. You never want to let a predator know you have something like pepper spray. You just want to use it. If you have a firearm, follow the advice given by those who trained you.
