Prepping

Are You a Closet Prepper? Don’t Be. Let Me Explain Why.

Are you a closet prepper?

If your answer is yes, then read on. I will explain in this article why you should never have to fear being embarrassed or judged by telling a co-worker, family member, or friend that you’re a prepper.

I found that I hardly ever brought it up to family or friends, except for the one or two friends that I knew who were into the same types of preparing that I was. But lately I’ve been opening up more to people that I know. Actually, it’s been kind of liberating and not as big of a deal as I made it out to be regarding telling others that I want to prepare for unforeseen times or situations.

People that I would have never told about my prepping before have actually become quite open and receptive in our conversations. In fact, some of the people I’ve been more open with about my prepping mindset have even started doing a little prepping themselves. That’s pretty great!
