Personal Safety – What Marta (And I) Care About

Causes that are very close to my heart are domestic violence and women who fall prey to dangerous individuals. My personal Facebook page features all sorts of articles citing women who were failed by their partners, judges, law enforcement, restraining orders, and the like.

I, like many other women, was once in an emotionally abusive relationship. It was many years ago. I learned my lesson.

We women are the more fragile sex. It’s because of that that I carry protection.

Something you cannot buy in a store or online is good sense. When you are out, be mindful of your surroundings. If you are going to a desolate area, let someone know where you are. Keep your cell phone charged.

If you are in a bad living situation, exit plans are not as easy, I know. But reach out for help – there are people out there who will help you leave your bad situation.
