Better that than to be asleep like them - maybe?

No use trying to wake them up either - it's a uniquely personal experience which everyone has to find in their own way.

I've been awake since 1997 when Diana was murdered. 17 years later and I can honestly say that only a couple of family members are slowly awakening.

Sometimes I really do envy their ignorance to be honest with you.

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

Re: I'm beginning to look like a real nut job with my family.
With all the failed doom dates and hundreds of dollars spent on prepared I can't blame my family for thinking ill of me. Is there any real doom out there or on the horizon? I in no way want something to happen, but I feel like something is eventually going to, am I nuts or do others feel this way?

Yeah it kind of seems like you're pretty gullible taking the word of wackadoos on the internet about "doom".

That's kind of passive conspiracy stuff. In order for you to actually believe it should be from personal experience.

Re: I'm beginning to look like a real nut job with my family.
The problem is the mentality of many doomers. Some people focus on the doom, put their lives on hold, and sacrifice for preparations on an event they may not happen.

Personally, I think that the modern world is held together with string, and there are a lot of events outside my control that could easily make the conveniences we take for granted unravel.

So, I treat my "doom prep" as a hobbie. I grow a garden, I'm learning to hunt all kinds of critters. I go backpacking. I spend my time learning things instead of watching tv. I buy books, and read them. I have a small store of food for me and my family, and several emergency items. (Hurricane Katrina should be enough evidence that you should at least have some base preps.)

I could go on and on. Instead of living in fear, and blathering to your family about doom dates, and using negative emotions to motivate yourself and them, start using positive things. Live your life, and invite your family on some camping trips. Get in shape, and encourage them to do it as well.

Show that you can live in both worlds. The one of plenty, and the one of doom.

To quote the original Conan.

"Wealth can be wonderful, but you know, success can test one's mettle as surely as the strongest adversary. "

We live in good times of plenty. It's best not to neglect your sword hand when there isn't anyone to fight.

Re: I'm beginning to look like a real nut job with my family.
My wife has thought I was nuts for years what with the 5 gallon water jugs, extra canned food, etc. But she also believes in covering her bases and DEPENDS on me to have us at a degree of readiness based on my intuition and analysis of things.

Courage and self assurance is an essential component of survival. I dont give a sh*t what anyone else thinks, I am going to do what is best for my family. Time to buy another can of hash....

Re: I'm beginning to look like a real nut job with my family.
I've always been known as a jokester in my family. Also, there are people in my family who really are crazy, but I sprinkle in that type of stuff through a joking manner. For instance, my friend will say you need a tin foil hat, and I'll say actually we need copper ceilings to block the signals on this one. Then, they laugh, but they get the point.

Why worry about what someone thinks of you?
You've been sincere in hopes to give them time to prepare, because you care. You only get one chance at life; are you going to allow other people’s thoughts to make it less enjoyable?

You are not nuts. You are a bit foolish telling people about future doom you read on this website. All GLP predictions fail. Every single one of them.

Never tell family
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 830861


Never tell anyone, if you grasp any of all of this without being a mentally ill person who just wants to beleive something fringe, then your sourroundings most likely won't get anything until they lose everything. And then, childhood kicks in!
Leave them behind in your mind.

Re: I'm beginning to look like a real nut job with my family.
It shows how wrong people can be, doesnt it,OP? The only one I cling to is Jesus Christ. He said it would be like the days of Noah just before His coming. I warn people hell is real and they need to repent and seek Christ ...."it" will happen suddenly-His Comming, and it is not a hoax, a joke, or a man's theory. He is coming soon and suddenly. Only the Holy and 100% sold out to Him will be taken. The rest will be left to face the worst 7 tyears of tribulation this world has ever known. Your preps will mean nothing then.

...just sayin'

If I am gonna be a fool, I will be a fool for Jesus Christ....

I never mention any weird crap to family. To see that doom is on it's way/here all I have to do is look at pictures from 60+ years ago and can see the world in decline.
