It’s sometimes hard to call being self-reliant a “simpler way of living” for many reasons. One of which is that we’ve been trained from a very young age how to cut corners… how to do things faster… how to do things out of convenience. We have big box stores that sell groceries, clothing, oil changes and guns all under one roof. So why not make things simple and just go buy everything you need?
Because it’s not what we WANT to do. Being self-reliant is more about a sense of pride and helping our fellow man than it is just getting what we want right then and still not being content.
Come see what we’re talking about over at Survival at Home as we explore 10 ways of becoming more self-reliant. Let us know what you do to be more self reliant, too!
