- Don’t trust a homeless person.
If you need their help they will most likely leave you alone there, they should have to invest some effort for the help.
If you meet them, you should remove yourself as soon as possible or expect that there will be trouble.
And never drink more than that you couldn’t survive a brawl unscathed.
It will be lying on the ground in the foreseeable future.
Many speak an astonishing number of languages and connect very quickly with others. I once analyzed what linguistic means homeless people use when they beg me for money. I was very surprised how sophisticated the whole thing went.
There is a reason why these people form the bottom of society. If you stop near them, the anger will also come to you.
Don’t talk, there’s nothing to clarify. I made the mistake. I went to a group of alcoholic homeless people in an alcoholic state to ask them for a lighter. No sooner did I finish talking to me, I already had a fist in my surprised face. I was asked why I would have beaten him. (To provoke me that there is a brawl). Luckily, after they pushed me once more, I quickly removed myself from you.
Also, do not try to get to know or understand them.
These tips don’t come from a homeless person, but from me.
I allow myself to judge in this way because in the past I often slept at the station after long evenings in the pub, because no bus came.This, too, should be avoided as much as possible. I very much regret it. These are not experiences I would have liked. I disgust myself at this dark chapter of my past.
What I do to stop having such experiences: alcohol only at my home or with other people at home that I trust.Alcohol only to a small extent.
Don’t talk to strangers.
Don’t give money to the homeless, they ignore it completely.
I don’t have a high opinion of the homeless.
In my eyes, they are scum.
In Germany, no one needs to live on the streets.Those who do have definitely a pretty big problem in their lives. But there are also enough people who have a good deal of gossip and are not homeless.
The idea that more than 99% of the people I meet will hurt me rather than help it helps very well.It is only a realistic assessment without (pseudo-)scientific context, but is based on personal experience.
