This time I want to share a story that happened just last week, something that was part of just another day of my life, one moment that could change everything.
While walking back home all sweaty from the gym, I remembered the technician was coming by today to fix my cables. The company said someone would be coming by from 10-1 and it was almost ten. I didn’t want him to catch me in the shower so I decided to wait until he came. I thought it wouldn’t be smart to get into the shower while a strange man was in my apartment. Perhaps it’s not smart to be alone in my apartment with a strange man at all?
Since starting to work with Kwema, I inherently became paranoid with my own safety. I remember a recent conversation I had with my friend, Anna, who told me she asked her husband to stay home from work because they had someone coming to fix their internet and she didn’t want to stay home alone with the baby and a strange man. “You never know who you’ll open the door for…” she said.
You see, Danger doesn’t only exist in extreme cases such as traveling the Brazilian Favelas, sometimes it happens in our daily lives, like 40 year old males coming to fix your cables when you are alone in your house, and you let him in with a smile.
I was happy to have my Kwema bracelet for this moment, I felt safer.
Maybe 90-99% (depending where you come from) of the time nothing will happen, but even this 1-10% can change everything. These moments can change your life forever, don’t dispose them. Be safe, always.
