Safety begins with understanding your surroundings and making informed choices. It’s good to be adventurous, but it’s even better to be cautious. Trust your instincts; if something feels off, take a step back and evaluate the situation. Always communicate with someone you trust about your plans, whether it’s a night out with friends or an online interaction. Communication with people you know and trust is key.
Building a network of friends who have your back is important too Surround yourself with positive influences who uplift and support you. Cyber safety is also a big deal, so be mindful of what you share online. Protect your privacy, and if you ever feel uneasy about an online interaction, talk to someone about it.
