If you are one of the many who discovered firearms in this way, it is important to remember, you are valuable, you are worthwhile, you have the right to defend yourself and people would miss you if you were taken away.I’ve talked to several women who came to shooting in this way. It seems to be a common thread that they felt foolish or alone for having been in a bad situation. We all make mistakes, and bad guys are really good actors. You are never to blame when someone chooses to target you. That is their decision. The only thing you can control is your response. Counseling helps. Talking to others who have been there, helps. Knowing you are not alone, helps. Learning that you are a strong, worthwhile person who is capable of defending yourself and your family helps…a lot!
