Just sitting around

Some people may see homeless individuals as lazy and taking advantage of others, unfortunately some of them are, but the majority are not. They are truly down on their luck, recovering drug user, unemployed, mentally challenged, etc.

You see them sitting down on a corner of the street and you think that is all that they do, sit and beg. However just sitting there is one of the hardest things to do. First they have to deal with people walking by giving horrible looks, talking about them, and worst of all judging. Then there is the issue of dealing with any inner problems such as a mental disability or self esteem issues. And lastly, there is the fact that they are sitting there just thinking, usually thinking of the things they do not have anymore which can destroy the mind set of an individual. So please know that 'just' sitting is a difficult thing!


  1. Thus far this is your best blog post to date.. The alternate perspective really offers a ton of insight. No one ever thinks they don't want to sit there just as much as you don't want to see them sitting there..

  2. This was very insightful. We all judge others but never think "what if that was me?" Probably never crossed some of our minds smh. Thank GOD in that robbery situation you came out ok! Glad you're still alive! Keep hope alive laddy :)
