Beyond the Self Defense Tweets:
Taken randomly from my self defense tweets on Twitter. I write super-short blog posts to go Beyond the Tweet, chosen from the archives.
Greatest tool in self defense–mindset. Never think “I’m a helpless victim.” Refuse to give them that kind of control.
Beyond the Tweet:
When a person in a self defense situations falls prey to thinking, “I can’t” or “I’m too weak” or “This is too much to take,” it only feeds the need of the criminal, abuser, user, terrorist, or bully. It feeds their need to control your heart and mind so they can do as they wish.
You have to grab hold of something powerful to get you through such situations: your dreams and goals yet fulfilled, your loved ones you want to see again, or a burning desire to not let this person walk all over you. You must think beyond the shock, summon courage from the heart of fear, and take action to be the victor, not the victim.
