- Always trust my gut instinct. There are times when we are kind of/sort of sure, and then there are those times when our gut, or intuition, lets us know we are in danger, and that instinct turns out to be right. I'm getting better at recognizing that self-protective mechanism. It was right this time.
- Think about my surroundings, the context, the people around me. If I feel scared or unsafe, take care to get myself to a safe place and around safe people.
- Nothing anything anyone does is about me. It's about them. Think about that for a moment. Not personalizing another's action releases us from unnecessary additional pain and suffering.
