I too am going through the same thing, but I am lucky that my mother and girlfriend have very open minds and understand some of the things i talk about and believe them. However, other family, almost all of my friends, and some co-workers are definitely still "Sheeple" and follow as they are told.
My best advice to you would be to use your new found knowledge and put together a plan to protect your family and close ones in the event that something bad happens. I have already started this process and i would suggest you do to. Whether something happens days from now like some are saying with the pole shift, 2012, or years from now...i plan on being prepared the best that i can be.

One thing I think might be good for some "beginners" to ease them into questioning their assumptions of normlacy: The short animated piece "The American Dream." This is a good way to reach those who are deep in denial, provided they are receptive to the animated medium. Good luck:

You do not owe your family anything. You have done what you can and they heard what you said, now they are asking you to stop being you and to stop harassing their little protective bubble. It is time to say "thank you" and find your real family.
In the Bible it says, "Honor thy Mother and thy Father", but sadly this did not mean that we were to honor our biological parents. The mere fact you are smart and honest should be testament to their only task towards you; it is done and they are done. The true meaning of Honoring thy Mother is to Honor the Planet, the Creator of all life exists here all around us, through her. Earth is the Mother. The true meaning of Honoring thy Father is the Great Spirit, the Sky, the Cosmos, GOD himself within you.
You can spend a lifetime surrounded by the biological parts of yourself and never realize that they have done their jobs and that you do not owe them anything. However, you can also see how short this life is and how important it is now to finally walk away, and, when you get where you are going you can look back and finally see they are exactly where you left them, in their bubble.
It sounds so cruel and most people could never imagine living without their biological attachments, but really many do not have a choice and no longer have parents or never had siblings, or lost those that they loved; they move on and they live "Well" in their lives. This is what you need to do, Live Well! Your true Spirit Family has been waiting for you out there and they are as real as you and I; Peace be with you!edit on 3/9/2011 by Greensage because: C not c

Read my sig line for more explicit instructions.
Mend your personal relationships learn about your local ecology learn some basic survival skills tell your loved ones how much you care make peace with your god and then live your life in peace with your neighbors and your environment. Prepare for a long happy life while at the same time preparing for basic necessities in a short-term emergency. That is all that any of us can do and if we do those basic things we dont have to live in constant fear. Hope for the best prepare for the worst and live every day as if it might be your last. You cant go wrong with that.
