Being a survivalist has often been associated as being overly paranoid, conspiratorial, pessimistic, or just plain crazy. Some people do not respect the responsibility of being prepared for all circumstances. Don’t let anyone make you feel odd about practicing Survivalism. The same people who call you paranoid, will be the first asking for your help when disaster strikes!
Try to share your insight and knowledge with friends and family, but don’t overdo it. Nobody likes a pushy or bossy attitude.
