…even when homeless and digging through recyclables.
It is a lesson I relearned today. You all know being homeless is like my second biggest fear. I see a lot of homeless folks everyday in Balboa Park and downtown San Diego. I feel so sad for them, but sometimes they scare me a little. Like when digging through trash outside my house. Had that happen today as I took out some recycling. I froze and didn’t know what to do. Then I remembered that homeless people are just people. So I said hello and asked him if he wanted my recyclables. He was very polite and thanked me for them and told me to have a nice day. It was a nice reminder not to judge before knowing someone or at least speaking to them and giving them a chance. I am glad the recyclables are still getting recycled and getting someone a little cash who needs it. Was a nice start to the day.
