In the natural world, animals use instinct to survive.
Humans have instinct too. Unconscious signals warning us of danger. You might call them your alarm bells.
But many of us ignore them.
When someone makes us feel frightened or threatened, all too often we don't trust our instinct.
Stalking is a crime that starts on a small scale. A few texts or emails; phone calls; or someone who won't take a hint you're not interested. But it can leave lives in ruins and lead to rape and murder.
Your instinct is the best protection you have against a stalker. Trust it.
