Being homeless can be the worst thing that can happen to you. It destorys you on so many levels. Emotionally it is crippling. Physically, it leaves you feel worn down. And spiritually because you begin to question if you will ever get out of this situation.
I know all of this first hand because I am struggling with getting a job and a place to live. So far I am close to having a job but no signs of a roof over my head. Not having a place to lay your head can really get to a person. I find myself floating between feeling okay to full of doubt and fear.
There are a lot of agencies out there that claim to want to help but they have so many rules. What is so hard about helping someone? All a person really needs is a fighting chance to turn their life around. And this is why being homeless can be so overwhelming. I just wish there were more people to help and more resources.
No one should ever have to be homeless.
