A Humbling Experience
I was done, I was going to check into a mental institution because it felt like I was a burden on others. I researched and found a place called hope house for those who have mental illness and addiction.
So this morning I walked there it isn’t far about half a mile from my house. And as I was sitting there I saw a lot of people most who had no homes who had no support and I looked at myself.
I have the support of friends and family, I have the support of a lot of people while these people don’t have a safe place to stay and are homeless.
And then it really hit me, I ran into somebody that I went to high school with. I sat next to him and he didn’t remember me. But he was nice but I felt bad because one he was a homeless vet, and he had serious mental illness.
But he prayed for me here was this man who had nothing, but he prayed for me. And I walked home and thought to myself I know it’s hard on my family and friends but they stuck by me.
Remember to be thankful.
