Some people are always "getting into trouble".
1. What is the worst thing that can happen to me?
Then ask yourself,
2. How will I handle that?
3. Decide whether it is best to run or to fight. Which has more chance of success in the immediate future?
OR If the source of your trouble is approachable
1. Be completely honest, and communicate the whole truth. It is hard for someone else to argue with the truth, no matter what it is.
Remember, this is FIRST aid, and there are other things that can be done.
