I am reading a book called "The Gift of Fear and other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence" and it is a very eye opening book. I encourage everyone to read this book for your own self protection!!!
Today is about "Too Many Details" - simply stated when people are telling the truth they do not need to support with supplemental information but when they lie it does not sound creditable to themselves so they continue to keep talking. This technique is a distraction as well to keep us from focusing on the obvious - such as he is a complete stranger that just walked up to me, etc. The writer recommends an exercise of occasionally reminding yourself of where you are and what your relationship is to the people around you.
Remember, if you find yourself in a situation that does not feel right to you and someone is providing to much detail remove yourself from that situation. It is ok to put up your hand - palm out in a defensive manner and speak loudly, clearly and firmly and say "Stop - move away from me". Draw attention to you and your situation as this they do not want.
As always - find a good self defense class and take it!!! Remember your 6th sense - that niggly feeling is a great receptor for your protection - DO NOT IGNORE!!!
Have a Blessed Day!
