Growing up vs Life As An Adult.

Growing is never easy. When you do not have a lot, you respect what you need over what you want. Your homeless, are you able to work or go back to school to get back on your feet? Are you going to feel sorry for your self and give up on everything, even life? Life is nothing more that daily tests! I could not stand being homeless! I do not believe in quitting! You have to be careful who you trust, who you help, and everyone around you! I hear stories of being who beg, that do not need to that make better money than I ever did doing that. I feel good about every cent, every dollar I make because I earn it. I have one laptop and one cell phone. No car, bills to pay every month. I still need to go see my mom. My birthday is on Wednesday, I am still here in Chicago. I have more I want to do that I can because I have the ability to and have the desire for a better life. Anyone who begs indoors, gets caught and banned from the place they were caught begging aggressively in, fast food restaurants, book stores, etc...... People do get arrested for that! I have seen people walking down the street holding money, their wallets and cell phones in their hands! I see rich people walking right by those who beg not caring. I would like to see those who believe they deserve nothing but free money learn there is no such thing as a free ride, no free money without a price. If your scamming people, that will come back to you! Everyone person alive, everywhere was put here for a reason. What that reason is, you have to find out! That will not happen over night. Does everyone believe people were put here to beg that are physically and mentally capable of working to beg and con people and steal? I am not knocking those who do, but that is not something that everyone rely on because that is not living and is not meant to be called living at all! When I did that, I hated myself, had not respect for myself. I know what I am capable of doing! I love good hard work everyday! When you have very little growing up, you see things a lot differently! You don't need millions to survive! Be careful who you help! Too many people have money coming in every month that do not need to beg! I see it and hear it all the time!

This is down right terrible. there are people who have no other choice in life. yoU car just one person who does not have to help them. God is the only person able to judge us. a good person will not walk by a begger on the street without caring if they are real or not.

yes, it s true and even me struggle a lot and find little opportunity around me so i save even a little penny and try to find little sources of earning as it add to pay a bill. i try not to depend on anybody even a sibling have enough resources they would belittle you and tend to focus on themselves and get a lot of priority. so even if you are rich or come from a middle income family. still need to find a way to earn so begging is a no, no for me it is degrading as you mention. so in case some do it because they think t is easy money and so they keep on doing it and became a professional beggar as they earn more than those people who work on their job desk everyday. though , the income may be little it still a hard work and it is not get easily without perspire and need to make a lot of effort in order to attain a change in a current situation to find a decent work and get a life where one could be proud of.

yes, it is different now to be an adult. a bit tiring and a bit frustrating but exciting and interesting as well. [i] Does everyone believe people were put here to beg that are physically and mentally capable of working to beg and con people and steal? [/i] Yes I believe so.. it is their work.. and people should be very vigilant, aware of these instances. not to be gullible and be smart.. we have brains to use and decipher whether we will give in to their tricks. Stealing is work for them. I know what I am capable of doing! I love good hard work everyday!

Yeah, one must be careful on who to help sometimes your help is the key to make him bad if not acquire a bad attitude in always wanting for help and not doing something to improve. In order to improve for the best in the future one must know himself and and then focus on his goal to be achieved but many are those with less understanding acquired and learned from the very beginning of their life so blessed are those who have a one step ahead from others at the time of conception and while growing up. most of the time it is a choice and sometimes we don't have choice. so if given a chance, we must let others understand and lend a hand for them to succeed
