Does the #MeToo social media trend have you feeling all too relatable? You’re not alone if you’ve been sexually assaulted or taken advantage of. There are ways to combat, cope, and prevent experiences related to the #MeToo trend. Learn to fight back.
We can’t predict the future or change the past. What we can do is change how we deal with our present moment. PTSD is a thing, and many #MeToo victims carry it with them as a burden. What you can do to combat being a victim of #MeToo is to get tough, take responsibility, and find help.
Take Back Your Responsibility
What do I mean here? What I am saying is that you have the responsibility to take care of yourself. If you have felt defenseless, then take responsibility into your own hands. Go to multiple self-defense classes, and learn how to defend the beautiful body that is yours. You should learn how to defend yourself because your body is a temple, and is ever so sacred that NOBODY should ever touch it without your sober and moral content. Put the responsibility back into your hands, and have someone help you while you fight back.
Combat being a victim of #MeToo and sexual abuse by getting protection in your home. Install security cameras, get the support of your family, friends, and neighbors, and hey you can even arm yourself with the 2nd Amendment Take a concealed weapon course, and learn how to protect yourself with the very type of arms that your Founding Fathers did to fight for our nation. If used by a morally sane and mentally healthy person, metal-lead will stop any intruder or sexual assaulter from coming close to touch you. Fight back for the sake of your well being!
Getting help would be to join a moral support group, find a therapist, and talk to a trusted family member and/or friend. Those mental scars will not heal on their own, you actually need to seek counsel to get it all out to adjust yourself to a ‘normal’ sense of well being. Traumatic experiences that fall into the #MeToo category will either haunt you, or you can take matters into your own hands and treat yourself to the therapy you need. I even go to therapy, because guess what, #MeToo.
Songs like this one are all too frightening. The count of #MeToo victims needs to stop here and now. Get empowered and arm yourself with defense for your body and therapy for your mind. You will be one tough cookie when you come out the other side, and you will also be better prepared to handle new situations that come into your life. Whatever it is, you can handle it. Time to woman up!
