That would all depend on how hard they were trying to help themselves first. If they were making bad choices and that's why they're in trouble .. They're on their own. But if they're a friend or relative and I see they're honestly struggling .. I would do what I could to help them.
If someone is on the verge of living on the streets, would you help them out or not? What if they are your relative or friend?
Only family and only my cousin Michael and Ervin. They are doing a h*ll of a lot better than me right now and to have all of that go south for them would make me feel bad.
After years and years and years of heartache and headache and tears and my hard earned money and betrayals and lies, scams and my stupid dumb choices and bad decisions and clowning me.
HELL NO. Final Answer. YEP
I say you should help this individual that your thinking of. Atleast give him/her food. Or help them get off the pavement and help them with counseling. Whatever helps them with theyre situation. I hope this helps :)
It depends to a large degree on the circumstances.
Many people work very hard to achieve everything they get---whether it's success or failure.
So if it's an externality---illness, fire, etc.,---I'm likely to help if I can.
On the other hand, if they have gotten where they are by ignoring reality, I'm more likely to let them hit bottom or they will never change---they'll be headed back to the streets shortly even if I did help them this time.
It depends on the person and their circumstances. I have known people who would never do anything for themselves and then blame the world for their life. There is no helping someone who will not help themselves, so I may give them $20 and a few phone numbers to agencies that might be able to help them. If it was someone I knew that had worked hard and still had everything yanked out from under them, I would help them.
Well if I saw someone I'd hand them money. Not like 50 quid or anything but a pound or something. I want to help but at the same time have enugh so I don't become poor!
