Today will be 4 years since I woke up at age 21. If I could go back to my old self, I would give myself this message. And this is my gift to you all who are this stage of life:
Let go of the fear porn; the stress; the anxiety; and the worrying it brings. For you have no power over it. It paralyzes and depresses you. Don’t wait for “it” to happen; for no one knows when the collapse will happen. Anyone who claims to know is full of shit.
Even the most intelligent man is just one man, in a giant macro-analytical world. One analysis cannot account for an entire, globally connected world, full of who-knows-how-many “dark horse” events (wildcards) waiting to happen.
Don’t put your life on hold. Don’t stop living because everyone else around you is dying. You’re only as alive as your dreams and aspirations. Learn how to balance both aspects of your life; both the prepper side and the side that still has to act like everything is ok — even if you know the outside world is not okay, your world CAN BE okay.
