Illogically, I think uncomfortable and unwanted experiences could never happen to those who project a lot of self confidence. But the reality is, it can happen to anyone. Recently Wendy shared a personal story that not only saddens, disturbs, and disgusts me about some people in this world, but also reassures me that I'm not paranoid for taking extra measures to keep myself safe. I don't often read or hear about uncomfortable encounters with strangers, but hearing her story makes me feel like I'm not being negative for thinking that bad things can and do happen. And it's not that I'm incapable of being tough or that I'm a scaredy-cat just because I don't choose to walk the streets at night alone. Rather, I avoid situations that I find dangerous or discomforting because I choose to be safe and content.
Never reason out of your fears as it's the utmost importance to recognize danger. Trust your gut instincts because 99% of the time it'll help you avoid bad situations. So remember ladies, please take the necessary precautions to stay safe!
But what I am sure of though is my excitement for Wicked! I know that I truly love theatre productions.
