Truth #16

I can’t leave homeless people alone.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a naive small town girl without many homeless people… or if I’m just stupid, but I cannot just walk past homeless people (especially when drinking). I go to Minneapolis a lot… and it’s like fucking homeless central there. I get nagged by my friends constantly to leave people on the sidewalk alone… but I feel so sad seeing them there and either need to give them a few bucks, some food, or a hug. I honestly don’t care why they’re homeless, I just care about everyone’s well-being.

Deep down I know my friends are fucking right and I could end up robbed, kidnapped, dead, or with lice… but I guess I just have faith that if I’m doing the right thing I’ll be okay. 😁

  1. Showing love to people who likely don’t feel like people any more isn’t jacked up. It may not coincide with society. If you use discernment and don’t go into hidden places and such you should be fine.
    Doing this means you still have the humane in “humanity.” ☺️

  3. Oh! I meant to reply to this, but was on my phone so couldn’t reply properly.

    This was awesome to read, I’ve always felt the same way. I’ve never been able to walk past without at least acknowledging, and it always tore my heart from when I was a child, to see people homeless and I always wondered why. I always wanted to be able to do something.

    I volunteered once for The Big Issue when I was 23/24, which is a company here which produces The Big Issue magazine for homeless people to sell on the street. I met a lot of homeless people through doing that, which was interesting. So, since then I don’t have embarrassment about interacting with them, but you’ve given me a reminder that there are things that I can do, even with my precarious money situation. πŸ€—

  4. If there is one thing this pandemic is teaching us – it is that humanity is global and that we are all equal and vulnerable to the effects of this virus. Kindness is never wasted. Just love for the sheer joy of giving and you do you – sometimes bad things happen to good people but is rare
