My fear of being vulnerable is often misunderstood as arrogance, disinterest, or distrust. I am hated, sometimes vehemently, for seeming so distant to those that I love. How ironic then, that I am guarded only because I care too deeply, love too hard, and hurt too much. That’s the price I pay.

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.
