“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”—
Why do people choose to be homeless? Sometimes those that have absolutely nothing are blessed with a talent that can get them everything. Someday when you look at those that are living on the streets, begging for money, you’ll maybe realize that they have everything, more than you could ever ask for when you’re living in a home, rich and comfortable. Money doesn’t necessarily always equal happiness. People can live without and still live a life that has a lot of potential that can get them places. Maybe sometimes people need to live on the streets in order to make them stronger, make them realize that there are worse things that can happen and not everything is as bad as what people make them out to be. A reality check is what people need, and those that are living on the streets have come face to face with the harsh reality that is life. Sometimes, people choose to live on the streets, why pay a ridiculous amount of money on things you don’t need? Some people live on the streets to travel, why have a home when you’re never there? Sometimes maybe the most sensible thing to do is not have a home. People might look down at you, call you names, think you’re disgusting, but over time, those names you’ve been called? They’ve made you stronger. Those boxes you’ve lived in? Made you realize you don’t need a mansion to keep you out of the wind. And the small amount of change that strangers gave you? You can do so much with so little. Being homeless means you don’t have to be grounded to a place, you can go where ever you want, whenever you want, and do whatever you want. The people you meet out there, some are crazy yes, but some have a tight grasp on what it is to live, they know that big decisions can change your life for better or worse. They’ve seen more than you ever have and have nightmares about them, sleeping in the alleys that you walk by every day. Not only can having it bad make you stronger physically, emotionally, and psychologically, but it can also make you weaker in these things as well. It’s your choice on what the outcome will be. How strong are you truly? Can you live out there your own? Can you witness murders? Can you watch drug deals go down and not care? How much can you take before you crack? Will you crack? You are in charge of your own life on the streets, you have to take responsibility for yourself. Get out there and try to conquer what you don’t think is possible for you. I’m sure you can, if you try.
