Document each incident.

Get help. Don’t hesitate to involve friends or neighbors or even authorities.

As threat levels rise, consider legal options. Look up the stalking law in your state.

Consider enrolling in a self-defense class like Krav Maga (real life street fighting) and make sure you like your instructor.

Empower yourself through taking proactive steps to enhance your safety which leads to increased confidence.
