Feeling so bad for the homeless people I see on the streets
Just moved to NYC. It's been eye-opening seeing just how many homeless people are on the streets here. I feel so guilty every time I walk by someone who looks ragged begging for money or sleeping on the sidewalk. Like dang, seeing another human being in a state like that makes me feel terrible, especially given how my financial status compares. I wish I could hand out a bill or two every time I pass someone like that, but I know it's not realistic to expect to be able to help every single person.
Yeah yeah, sure a lot are probably there due to addiction or their own life choices, but it's hard not to feel pity. How do you all deal with it, or make yourselves feel better? Or will I eventually just become one of you hardened city folks with a heart of stone.
