I get offended when people say stuff like this to me haha. I can’t help it if I talk in circles or repeat myself. Oh well, I use writing and creativity to help me verbalize my thoughts and evolve/cope.
I mean I know I’m different. I think different. I do things differently.
One thing I’ve done since I was 20 years old was to create reporting from databases. When I was in college my advisor advised me to minor in comp sci, even though I was an accounting major.
So I got a summer accounting job at a construction company and I had a lot of free time so I offered to make them a report so they could offer a 5% discount. So I opened their access database copied the tables into excel and manipulated them to do the calculations.
But I still had free time so I asked if I could spend some time making it faster using Visual Basic, this was 2000. I wanted to charge the cost of the book to the company, and I got the OK.
So I taught myself VBA and from then on I’ve built custom db reporting tools in excel for every company I’ve worked for.
I ve been in a homeless situation and I was lucky I got a place in a homeless accommodation. I played the rules and it got me a home. Yes I feel offended when a follow human turn to drugs and alcohol and walk down the road of no return. These days we have rehabs, charities and the know how. We even got medicine for this.
Sometimes I think the misfortune feel offended to call them the misfortune ones. Out of my perspective I can see my life fortunate or misfortunate. Me too turn to drugs and alcohol sometimes but not to the extent becoming a selfneglect and sorrycase.
If That Is True, And You Have An Understanding Of That Form Of Addiction. Why Judge?.
Especially Since It Seems You Have No Plans To Ease The Suffering Of Those Trapped.
With Your Own Occasions Of Trial & Error, It Would Only Make Sense For You To Step Away And Say Absolutely Nothing At All About The Manner Of Homelessness. Unless You Thought Maybe You Could Pass A Note And Change That Pain For The Better. For A Better Understanding Perhaps. I’m No Expert On Drug’s And Alcohol, But It’s A Complex Issue.
It Doesn’t Go Away With Treating Homeless People Worse Than What The Average Person Goes Through.
Sorry To Inform You, But!, We Really Are All In Thus Together. As Much As You May Feel Shame When You See A Homeless Person. By Looking Into A Hypothetical Mirror Perhaps.
Yes you are right I shouldn’t judge. I think the only way is education. I am just afraid to go the path of self destruction. I like to recover and not being put down by some irresponsible judgemental homeless. I am living in a city and face poverty everyday. But its slowly improving. We all make poor choices sometimes and its not a crime anymore to admit it and face the consequences.
