Siren, I've encountered the same thing with those around me. Sometimes I really do wish I could borrow their blinders for awhile though. I've
decided that these are people I love and they are for the most part smart people. They've just made different choices than I have about how they view
world events. I also believe that for a long time they've led happier, more productive lives than mine has been because they did put their faith in
the system. Now, as the system is failing them they are beginning to go into a state of depression and fear that I learned to live with decades ago. I
really do feel sorry for most of them. I wish they never had to see their bubble burst.
Some (not all) of them I will offer a place in my planning when, and only when, the proper time comes. Timing is crucial though because just as I
have a circle of people that I want to include,,so does each one of them and that is an endless chain. As hard as that sounds, I can't allow the
lifeboat to sink. Just let whatever you disclose be at the proper time and for the proper reason. You'll know what to do when the time is right.
