How does one help themselves in a time of utter crisis?
a brief look in the story of what was a normal 24 year old
I became homeless 3months ago despite working for the last 6 years due to un foreseen issues in my life the savings pot had well and truly dried up. So I did as many would do I turn to the council once I lost my job and could no longer afford my rent and the reply was brutally simply:
your a man have no mental or physical elements no drug or alcohol issues we will not help you. I then took the last of my money purchased a tent and a sleeping bag and that's when it all began.
for any small donations to reach my target I plan to move into a residence that I can support myself for a month the same time it will take for me to complete my groundworks course to which I have a job to walk into.
see it easy for people to offer me solutions on how best to stay homeless and even easier still for people in my situation to lose sight of the fact we once had some dignity but the truth of what has kept me going is every moment I allow myself to be stuck in this situation is a moment I allow my pride to rob me of my kids.
I cant I wont and I shouldn't have to im not entitled to anything in life yet im entitled to life and this is not living I hope one day I can pioneer help for the young men f todays society with no social problems and every social disadvantage
