From a very young age, we have always been told by our parents and our grandparents about the ability to be able to protect ourselves and the people around us in very difficult situations. Many young people ignore this excellent advice and it’s only when they become adults that they realise how invaluable it can be because they find themselves in situations through no fault of their own.
