Your personal security and safety play a huge role in your well-being. Threats that could jeopardize your safety include injury and violence (accidental or deliberate). Putting yourself in unsafe situations at work, at home, or in the community can have major impact on you mentally and physically. Living in an unsafe household or neighbourhood, going to a school where you feel unsafe, working a job that is unsafe, or being in a relationship where you are unsafe are all major causes of stress. Being assertive when it comes to your personal safety is practising self care in the most basic sense; you are protecting yourself from injury or death and informing others that you prioritize your health and safety.You deserve to have a place to rest and sleep where you are safe. You deserve to feel safe in life.
