At first you may think you have no story to share, but in fact all of us do. Every person has had to protect some part of herself—her body, her mind, her heart. When you think about a story to tell, keep in mind that there are many different aspects to self-defense, such as: prevention, avoidance, confrontation, after-care, and organizing. Protective actions may be verbal, physical, or internal.
