When your home is broken into, not only are you left with dealing with the loss of your possessions, but you're left dealing with often terrifying feelings of having been violated. These tips can help you get back to feeling safe in your own home.


  1. First and foremost, have a security system installed or upgraded. It will give you the peace of mind that your home is always being monitored and you are protected.

  2. Find a support group in your area. There are people just like you, who've been the victim of crimes that were not their fault, and who deal with similar feelings to the ones you're having. Talking to others in the same situation can have a hugely healing effect.

  3. Self-defense classes can build confidence and help you to feel as though you'd be able to protect yourself in the event it was necessary.


These 3 steps are the first steps towards feeling safe and secure in your own home.


If you haven't yet experienced a break-in, you are lucky.  Many of the people who have endured the trauma, whether they were in the house at the time or not, have to process quite a bit of fear and anxiety.  Utilizing home security systems as part of your arsenal for feeling safe is a great way to take back your power.
