Yes, flooding in Recife was very intense. I almost lost my car’s engine in one of the floodings. But I did not know it was one of the most vulnerable metropolitan areas in the world..
Thank you for your feedback. It’s good to know that my reasoning made sense for you. Yes, ThePrepared is different in the sense that it’s not Gloomy Doomy stuff and I’ve found perfectly written the “Sane prepper” subsection in the “Start Prepping” section. The whole point is what you have said, it’s more probable we face a flat tire or a job loss (and all the challenges that come with it) rather than a zombie apocalipse, and that was the perfect environment I was looking for.
Great post ! Mental Health is very important, specially nowadays. I would like to share something I was reflecting couple days ago and see if it makes sense to you.
I’m new to prepping and what I’m realizing is that sometimes I must remember myself to be in the present (as you said) and not let my thoughts lead me into catastrophism. This is an everyday exercise, that’s why I believe seeing prepping as a lifestyle and taking your time to fulfill your preparation is a good mental health strategy to be prepared but not paranoid. In addition to that I think we should also be alert to critical events where SHTF can happen, in that kind of situation we must rush, otherwise it is a good lifestyle.

Best regards everyone !
