6. They may have talent
While there is so much stigma surrounding the issue of homelessness, it has been revealed on the streets that the homeless have far more talent than you really think they do. From speaking multiple languages to creating street edge art to hand crafting to being a graduate at university. Don’t hesitate to ask the next homeless person their life story, you never know what they might have up their sleeve!
7. They could be desperately wanting to get back into the game (society)
It’s always assumed that the homeless are lazy and don’t want to get back up on their feet to face the real world. This is definitely a false assumption. While some have sought different jobs, they were just not successful and were forced into their position. Sometimes, it’s just not a choice.
8. They may have been regarded as a criminal
Some women who desperately need sanitary products often go into supermarkets or a local gas station and steal pads or tampons. There have been cases where these women have been fined, making the case a criminal offence. Homeless women suffer enough as it is, why should begging and loitering be a criminal offence for them?
9. They may have left due to a natural disaster
Natural disasters are out of our hands. No one has control over what happens, it’s all climate change. From tsunamis, to fires to thrashed homes as a result of a tornado/hurricane have left many people homeless.
10. They could have been disowned by their family
Mistakes happen and it’s for these little mistakes that children and young adults get abandoned and left to live on the streets. Can this be solved?
