While living in Chicago & Cincinnati, I never gave any money to homeless people when I saw them shivering on the street. I thought at the time that it was a waste of money and oh, that’ll never happen to me, or there’s enough people giving them money, I need this $3.63 in my pocket 🤦🏻♂️
Not only are you helping someone survive a really tough life, the inter-conscienceness also starts paying you forward.
Let me try and explain. I prefer to deliver food so I can make sure the ‘peeps in the streets’ are fed instead of cracked out, but I do bath products, hygiene-ish, motels or just straight cash. Every time you give, dopamine is released making you happy & emotionally stable. It tells your brain to ease tension and relax after the initial high.
google that ish.
I pay it forward whenever I can. It’s powerful.
learn or die.
