How one deals with daily situations

Life is really nothing more than how we handle every situation we face. What will you do if your working and see people begging and you wonder do they have their own place? Do they really need the money or are they scamming everyone? I heard from an ex that he was in this store. This guy was short some change and he asked him for some money. The owner of the store kicked the guy out. I am not saying that is right but if you really need some change, then go about that in such a way that is quiet if your indoors. How do you handle losing your job knowing you have a family to take care of? Would you look for part time work till you find full time work or would you start your own business? I have hard times like everyone does. You need to stop and remember what is important. If you really need help for money for bills, would you ask for a loan or apply for a government grants for what you need? Every time I asked my mom for a $20 loan I heard the same thing everytime so I stopped and started relying only on myself and what I can do because not everyone needs to hear "Sorry We can't help you because we would rather help your brother and his wife eveytime over you.!" It is hard when people turn their backs on you, even family. When that happens, what do you do, who do you turn to for help?

That is really hard when people turn their backs on someone, even one's family. It is written, " that if one is in trouble or in need, go to your neighbor not in your brother's house." Ask God for guidance and provisions too. In my experience, when I was in need or I want something, I pray for it. I ask God to sustain me and my family. Then suddenly, someone will call me and I have new project. It happens to me many times. I assure you, God is good and He is a Provider. God Bless us!

I wish I knew. I'm struggling right now and making a little, tiny bit of progress. I come to mylot to try and forget about it. Thanks for reminding me. Kidding. I haven't lost my sense of humor...yet. This is a good topic. So is your other one "Solve the problem..." I noticed that the discussions I've seen on homelessness don't seem to be popular. There was one a few months back by a woman who, along with her husband, was staying in a motel compliments of the state. They were homeless. She was talking about reusing things as much as possible before having to throw them away. As I recall she didn't get many responses. I think people just don't know what to say. I do have a friend who has given me valuable suggestions, ideas and information. One would think that when you got old things might get easier. They don't. I'm finding out just how hard it is to be an older individual in today's world. I feel very old and tired. And yes, family does turn their backs on you, especially when they find there won't be anymore expensive, really great Xmas, birthday and other holiday presents. It's nice when a relative's son moves out and she tells you how she's redoing the room (in a 7 room house) so she will finally have a nice sitting room for herself (along with the office, 2 living rooms, guest bedroom & bar/pool room, etc.) after you just told her there's a possibility you may end up homeless. And the spare bedroom is needed for all the friends/relatives that come by from out of state to visit and who, by the way, all still have jobs. And sometimes the random partier who is in no condition to drive home. Where do you turn for help?
