A TikToker has revealed a chilling reason why women shouldn’t shop at the same supermarket every day.
Kaylen Zahara has urged females who live alone to be extra cautious.
She explained: “Not every single college girl or young adult woman comes from the same background and same mindsets when it comes to safety and having street smarts and street sense.
“It is important for us, as young women, to get comfortable with the idea and mindset of being consistently inconsistent with where we run our errands, what we do and how we do it.
“The people that are out here with the intentions of participating in sex trafficking, kidnapping, raping, etc – they are looking for specific targets, the oblivious, the ones that don’t have awareness, and the ones that don’t have street smarts.
“So, when you are shopping for errands and going to the gym, and going to your favourite coffee shop and brunch spot, you are becoming consistent for someone who is tracking you.
“You need to be so consistent with being inconsistent that you are then too difficult for them. It’s too much effort to try and track you.
“You need to be going to different coffee shops all the time, don’t go to the Target that’s right next to your house, do different things. Spread it out. Drive the extra miles to run errands and the next week, don’t go there anymore.
“Then go to the place that’s close to you. Switch it up so much, pay attention when you’re leaving these places, who is following you, whose car is parked around you before you got out to go in the store.”
@amazedbykayyBe consistent with being inconsistent. Pay attention & dont under estimate folks. Feel confident in your awareness & tactic to be safe. ##fyp♬ original sound – Kaylen Zahara
She continued by saying that people who are considering ‘hurting you’ may be deterred if they can’t track your routine.
To conclude, Zahara warned: “Prioritise your safety because people live day in and out trying to harm others.”
So far, the clip has been viewed over 1.6million times and thousands have taken to the comments and shared their own safety tips.
One woman said: “If you’re ever followed, never go straight home.”
Another added: “Also… no cute doormats outside your door! [It’s the] first thing that screams that a female lives here!”
