How to Convince Loved Ones to Prep (and When to Give Up)
Troubling world events seem to be happening at a faster pace lately, leaving many of us to feel a renewed sense of urgency as we build our preps. What with the collapse in Venezuela, America’s financial instability, the threat of epic natural disasters, increased incidences of civil unrest, and the looming worry of cyber attacks, we know that our ways of life could change at any point in time, and we might be thinking about how to convince loved ones to get on board.
These are the events that we prep for. We clearly understand the ramifications of facing any of these catastrophes without the proper supplies on hand. Unfortunately, most of us have friends, family, and loved ones who don’t have the proper supplies on hand. Out of love and concern, we urge them to prepare. Often, our pleas fall on deaf ears, or even worse, meet with amusement and derision.
If you really care about the people in question, you probably feel strongly compelled to talk with them about emergency preparedness. But, have you considered the difficulty of how to convince loved ones to prep when the idea has never even crossed their minds before?
