I felt so bad about this guy sleeping under this overpass. it was very cold and pouring rain out. i rushed to the nearest Target to buy a new blanket and pillow and drove right back to him. i offered it to him and he said 'no thanks' i was like 'you sure man? its cold out.' and he still refused. i told him to try and stay warm and drove off.
im very baffled by it. maybe i should have left it near him anyways. why do homeless people refuse help or gifts like this sometimes? what do you think?
Speaking from a person that used to be homeless. Yes I was truly homeless when I was young.
If it was not the help of a homeless Vietnam Vet that taught me how to survive and how to build shelters. I might not be here today.
See some see it as you have pitty on them and they don't want your pitty. Plus many also feel that its charity and feel like they don't have self worth
Even though thats not the case.
Since I was once homeless, I leave money, food, blankets and coats in boxes and mark free for homeless. Then leave the box in their known area.
They are more willing to take the help if you can't see them.
Did you know some people choose to be homeless, but most don't
The ones that do it for choice, do it to get away from bullshit of the modern world.
I even thought about going back to being homeless. See the modern world is so full of spying, loss of freedoms and constantly controlled by money.
To a rare few being homeless is a form of freedom
