30 Ways To Stay Safe

So recently I was looking through old-unpublished blog posts and I came across this one. Apparently, I wrote this when I was in a humorous mood. *Ahem* Laugh with me, people. This was Younger Me’s 30 ways to stay safe. XD2-26-2019 203.jpg

  1. Don’t make enemies
  2. If you somehow do make enemies, stay far away from them
  3. If you and your enemies are very close to you, lock yourself in your house, make sure you have several ways of escape, take a few weapons and some TRUSTED (very important) friends and wait for what might happen…
  4. If you and your enemy are in the same house, stay as far away from the room that they are in. Try to get out of the house as quickly as possible.
  5. If you and your enemy are locked in the same room, with no escape visible, sit on opposite sides of the room. Stay calm. Watch every move your enemy makes. Make sure your enemy doesn’t get close to you. And most importantly, DON’T FALL TO SLEEP! If you fall to sleep…well, we won’t think about that…
  6. If you are locked in a room with more than one of your enemies and they are very angry and are coming towards you, try to negotiate and make them calm down until you are rescued. Tell them jokes. It should help them cool off…maybe…Make sure you give them the things that you promised once you are safe, otherwise it’ll cause much more trouble in the future.
  7. Always lock your doors at night.
  8. Don’t trust strangers who seem overly kind and interested in you. They probably have other motivations. Overtime if they prove themselves, trust them.
  9. Don’t tell people too much about yourself until they have proved that they can be trusted.
  10. Don’t tell strangers where you live or anything like that.
  11. If you meet a stranger in a public place that you and they frequently visit and they seem very interested in your life, don’t tell them too much. Watch then closely as they go about their business and see if they can indeed be trusted. (By the way, watching people is very fascinating! I really love doing it! It can tell you a lot about a person that you wouldn’t know otherwise. XD)
  12. Don’t fly in airplanes. They could crash.
  13. Don’t go in a boat. It could sink.
  14. Don’t ride in a car. It could crash.
  15. Don’t ride the bus. In addition to crashing, you have no idea who might be riding with you.
  16. Don’t ride a bike. You could crash and get seriously hurt.
  17. Walk most of the time, because it is good exercise but make sure you keep a lookout for suspicious looking people.
  18. Don’t walk alone (especially in the big cities *shivers*) after dark.
  19. Don’t walk in dark alleyways.
  20. If you have to go long distances, I would suggest driving or riding with a friend, but there are risks in that.
  21. If you can’t drive to the place, fly in an airplane, but be prepared for every possible thing that could happen.
  22. Don’t linger long in tall buildings. There are a million disasters that could happen.
  23. If you are an older sister and you have young siblings, don’t go hiking where there are steep hills, long drop-offs or huge bodies of water.
  24. Again, if you are an older sister and you go for a walk with your younger siblings, try to avoid walking near large roads. Children get strange ideas sometimes and they could run out right in front of an oncoming car.
  25. If someone says that they want to talk to you about something really important the next day and they look kind of angry, try not to panic. Go to your room, sit on your bed and think of all the possible things they might say. Come up with answers for those things. Memorize your answers. Be prepared for anything. Don’t be caught off guard. Most importantly, don’t panic in front of them. It makes them nervous and you more nervous.
  26. Don’t eat too fast. You could choke.
  27. Make sure your siblings don’t eat too fast and choke.
  28. If you are a kid and you see a bear with cubs in the woods, don’t go closer for a better look.
  29. If you are a kid and you see anything with sharp teeth and long claws, don’t go closer.
  30. If you see blood, don’t panic. Blood is a natural part of life. Take a deep breath and assess the situation. Figure out what is going on. DO NOT PANIC. Panicking never helps anything. Stay calm and breathe.

*chuckles* I guess I was overly cautious back then…. Honestly, we can’t live our lives wrapped up in some protective bubble. We’re all going to face times when we are hurt and when we hurt others. At one time or another, we’re all going to be in bad situations that we have no power over. And that is terrifying. So we have to trust the God who is in control of everything and who sees everything.

    1. Hehe! Thanks Cailyn!!! Yeah I s’pose I’ll have to take a chance and get in a car. I really want to visit you!!!!!! 😍 haha, yeah, I’ll start walking now and I’ll be there in a couple months. I’ll probably be really exhausted by the time I get there, so I want a nice soft blanket and some ice cream. 😂

      1. For some reason it reminds me of an old poem…

        If all the world were paper
        And all the sea were ink
        And all the trees were made of bread and cheese
        What would we have to drink?

        Yes I’m weird lol!!!
