So at the start of this pandemic, I saw a lot of people saying stay safe a lot,I did it myself. Which was heartwarming to see.
But, Coronavirus aside, there is so many other ways, people are not being safe where they could or should be that I personally feel isn't addressed enough.
So this mytake is about those other things/areas in your life that you should be more safe about.
A fitting song to start with:
Just because you talk to people online, or even video chat with them, doesn't mean you "really" know them.
Even when you first get to know someone in real life, you don't see the real them right away because they will be on their best behavior. It takes time to see someone's true colors. So, you don't think people are doing that by video? How can you really know, just by video or text?
Chatting, sharing stories, getting advice is one thing. But people are doing way more than that. It's not even a moral issue, it's a Safety issue.
Things I personally feel people shouldn't be doing with people they don't really know like that are:
You don't know this person, why would you share that intimate part of yourself with a stranger. Even if you think it's no big deal, do you think if it's safe or not. You are sending pics to a stranger who you don't know what they could really do with those pics.
So what if they promise they wouldn't share them, you can trust them. If you"don't know" them how do you really know you can trust that? Please stay safe/be safe when it comes to protecting yourself and your body.
Stranger Long Distance Relationships
Again, just because you've communicated or videoed someone, the feelings you develope for that person are based off what you "think" that person is like or what you ", think you know" about that person. But how can you really know just by social media interaction. Even people IRL aren't going to tell you the truth if they have bad intentions. Ted Bundy sure didn't. And he was a normal looking, attractive man. Bad enough when it's just someone playing you. But what if it's a dangerous person. Just because someone SAYS they love you, what does that mean?
Nowadays people throw that word around way too easily, way too casually/carelessly. Why open yourself up to that hurt. Any relationship you enter in, even in real life, you are taking a chance. But especially with someone you've NEVER met. Please Stay safe be safe with who you give your heart to.
And the most important thing I personally feel people are not being safe or smart about:
People are way too casual about sex these days in my opinion. And again it's not just a moral issue, it's a SAFETY issue to me. To have casual sex with random people is so not safe for so many reasons. STDS, just being one. But the fact you don't really know that person yet you'll have/share an intimate act with someone you don't know and don't know you can trust is really playing with fire, and that don't mean hot sex.
Have people not heard, or remember the Craigslist killer, hell they even made a made for tv movie about it.
And then the other aspect of sex where people are not being safe enough about:
Again, having Unprotected sex with anyone is not safe, smart unless you really know and can trust them...
And it's not just about STD's... It's about preventing any Unwanted pregnancies. I recently asked this question,
And the results were appalling to me
Ladies, if a boyfriend or husband thinks they can have unprotected sex with you and if you don't agree to an abortion, they feel it's their choice if they should have to provide financial support to a child, or walk away and leave you to deal with it, why would you take that chance with a stranger or casual hook up... Both parties should be equally responsible for preventing that, but some men feel because women are the ones that get pregnant, that responsibility falls on them alone. But as it takes two to "get" a woman pregnant, it should FALL TO BOTH....
But ladies, please please stay safe, be safe in who you choose to sleep with and about protecting yourself so you don't wind up:
Please people, be safe... Not just with/for yourself but with/for other people's feelings and lives....
And just remember:
So, Stay safe people... From the Coronavirus. But also from all the other dangers out there. Especially the ones that can be avoided by making smart/safe choices.💜🧡♥️
