Many people today do not feel safe either at home or when they are out. What are the causes?
What are the solutions?
A number of people have a sense of insecurity whether they sitting in their homes or going somewhere outside. The growing number of crimes and a sense of not belonging are major causes of this problem, and these can be solved using security measures and becoming more social.
One of the most common causes of feeling unsafe is a crime. This can be both feeling unsafe at home, if one’s neighbourhood is prone to crime, or when out in public, if one is worried about being the victim of a crime. Another common cause of feeling unsafe is feeling like one does not belong. This can be due to many factors, such as feeling like an outsider in a new place or feeling like one does not fit in with a particular group of people. Several things can be done to help reduce this feeling of not belonging. For example, taking the time to get to know new people and places and trying to fit in with the local culture.
While there are clearly some causes that are out of any individual’s control, there are also a number of solutions that can help to reduce the feeling of unsafe. By taking measures to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime, staying informed about the current security situation, and making an effort to fit in with the local culture, many people can help to reduce the feeling of being unsafe both at home and when out in public. Secondly, when going out taking a family member or friend can make a person more confident outside. So, it is advisable to accompany someone to a stranger place. Also, one should have a a more friendly attitude when dealing with someone outside their home.
In conclusion, the increasing number of crimes and a sense of alienation are key contributors to this issue, which can be resolved by implementing security measures and being more social.
