Burglary: A Cautionary Tale

Security Gate

The past several days have been a nightmare. Two men broke into my house while I was taking a shower. I have no idea who these men are. I have no idea how long they were in my house. I have no idea what all they took. I do know, however, that they have really robbed me of my peace of mind.

Things could have been worse. They didn’t attack me and I only saw them from the window as they were leaving. Still, I can’t shake this feeling of complete helplessness. I called 911 and filed a report. After the initial break-in and over the next 48 hours, these men tried to break in 3 more times and were successful once more. I can’t begin to express how upsetting this has been.

Since the break-ins, I have had a security gate installed over the back door. I have replaced my front door, and I’ve finally had a security system installed. I never felt unsafe in my home, so I never took these steps before. Now, even with all these security measures in place, I still feel unsafe. My advice to everyone is to take the proper precautions, because once it happens it is really difficult to restore your peace of mind.

I’m so on edge it’s crazy. I’ve been thinking about what might have happened and that leads to thoughts of my own mortality and the legacy I’ll leave behind. Maybe I’m just being dramatic but the whole situation really scared the crap out of me. So, I’m turning to this blog. I started this blog because I’ve been on a really chill path and I want to share things that I’ve learned along the way. I wanted to share how I’ve been able to feel good and be so chill lately. Now, I think I want this blog to not only share with you my ‘path of chillness’ but also to express how much I care about you, your lives, and your happiness. We are all connected.

Anyway, I’ll try to get back to my normal self and post some cool stuff soon. Thank you so much for being here for me.

  1. Oh my goodness, how scary! I’m so sorry this happened to you. Praying for safety and for your peace of mind to be restored.

  2. I’m so sorry this happened to you. I know EXACTLY what this feels like. We had our home broken into twice, though not in the same week thank-you-very-much! It just tilts you world doesn’t it. It is such a violation.

    We now live in the country, surrounded by farmland and woods. I don’t worry about it so much because I am retired and home all the time. But to have them come in while you are home and return twice after, well, it just has me thinking…

    1. Yeah. It was horrible! Even though it’s been several months, I’m still a bit nervous. Thankfully none of us were hurt. I watch ID channel all the time and I’m just glad that we all made it through unscathed!
