i am an independent woman living in poor country feeling unsafe is a daily routine. 

i want to feel  safe and secure, how is that? i dont want to log in an app and report my abuse or problem  that will be too late,  i want to replace the feeling not recover from what comes after. the ideas of  bad things might happen surrounds me makes the unsafe feeling becomes bigger and bigger.

 i want to have a community that supports me and knowing that community will stand for me if something bad happen that will make me stronger.

the community have to be close to me this might be inform of friends, how to make friends nowadays away from virtual ones. people having empathy , people need me to be with them as i need them to be with me.
