Self-Defense isn’t just physicalSelf-Defense
Every so often we see a story like this guy meets woman; guy gets woman to give him money; guy get woman to give him more money…, and; woman finally gets smart (maybe). This case has an unusual twist with the woman begging for mercy on behalf of the guy!
This brings me to the point I want to make: Self-Defense goes well beyond physical proxcimity, it is a state of mind. If these two women were self-defense minded they could never have been exploited in this way. This guy launched an emotional and mental attack on these women and they never saw it coming. Be aware not only of your physical surrounding but of what trust relations you establish.
Always reassess your situation and your relationships. Put checks in place to protect yourself. If a guy or girl asks for money say NO and see how they react. If you feel so compeled, instead of giving them the money make the investiment/purchase/payment for them! Above all use your brain and trust your instincts, they are usually right but as this story demonstrates sometimes the one we need protection from is ourselves!
