Discussing Self-Preservation and how it is directly related to our identity and response to fear. Vulnerability plays a huge role in self-preservation as it requires a certain level of courage and boldness. The belief here is that if we're focused on self-preservation it will be directly related to how we handle ourselves in public situations where other people may not have our best interest in mind. These moments are where sexual assault happens, where we are left open to being drugged, we may find ourselves with someone we didn't intend to go home with. The idea of self-preservation should also be looked at from the angle of long term physical, mental & spiritual health as it is a way for us to protect ourselves.
