Preparation vs Paranoia

That is the difference between preparation and paranoia.

It’s knowledge.

It’s experience.

Not magic, or false confidence, or mental tricks.

It’s exposure.

So what fears do you have?


Either way, taking time to get to know the people you surround yourself with, whether they are good, bad, or any variable in between, can be an important piece of life that you’re missing.

What Now?

The reality is, ignorance is bliss…. until it’s not. If you’re worried about being murdered in public by mass violence, ignoring the topic only creates and fuels fear. Exposing yourself to the topic, learning how guns work and what they sound like, learning how to fight, learning how to give medical care, etc… These things are what will help suppress that fear and set you up a higher likelihood of survival.
