I have been living a “housed’ life for almost 2 years now, as opposed to my homeless life 4 years before that. Now, I am a contributing member of society and I have the same worries and anxieties that many people who live housed lives have. Fear of a cold hearted co-worker has replaced fear of a cold night.
Yes. Life on the streets is different, but no less challenging.
I have been able to remember that there are places that I used to go and relax and I sometimes use these places to get away. I play homeless for a few hours and enjoy peace that people who are in the “work-buy-brag” loop seldom feel. Thank God I was homeless once.
