You might have noticed that my posts tend to be non-controversial. That is quite deliberate. The last thing I want is to get stressed over my writing, and stressed about the effect it has upon my readers, I don’t want your blood boiling. It’s all about relaxation.
Having said that I do mention some issues that could be the source of discussion. For example, I find myself distressed about people who sleep rough. The really frustrating thing is that the authorities paint a picture such there is no need for people to sleep out of doors.
But, I speak to people, there are two or three that I see on a regular basis; I’ve bought food for them, and on one occasion (even though I disagree with it) I bought a pouch of tobacco for one after I’d seen him picking stubs up to smoke. Doubtless he is still doing that, but it distressed me to see it. I acknowledge the hypocrisy in my actions. If I am that concerned about it, should I be doing more to ensure that they get support. that is assuming of course that they want that support. In some cases, they most definitely don’t and become offended when you offer.
What to do?
