What I see this statement as is a warning to prepare yourself for darker days to come or future rough patches. It’s basically self defense in others’ terms.
See self defense is not just about being physically able to defend yourself from a physical attack. That is such an outdate concept. Don’t get me wrong here. It is very important that we know how to defend yourselves and our loved ones from physical harm. However self defense is so much more.
Self Defense can be that you financially prepare for the times when you may not have as much money coming in and you can still pay the bills and live comfortably.
Self Defense can be learning to know your surroundings and knowing who’s in it so you don’t get surprised by an attack.
Self Defense can be being well educated so you have a clearer educated mind to tackle some huge obstacles in your life.
Self Defnese can be eating healthy with quality foods so you prevent certain health problems and diseases.
Self Defense can be staying physically active and fit so you can live a longer more active lifestyle when you retire.
Self Defense can be producing less garbage as to protect and maintain our environment for future generations.
And the list can go on and on. Understand what I mean? You are smart so I know you do.
