It’s way too easy to look at that person asking for food assistance and judge whether or not they actually DESERVEit. You may wonder if they’re just lazy, if they’re cheating the system, if they don’t want to work to provide for themselves.
But please Don’t Judge! There are way too many things you don’t know…
We all have values we hold dear. Our life experiences oftentimes shape us gently into the complex yet incredibly beautiful people we become. My values won’t necessarily be the same as yours. And that’s OK!
We all had to start the road to simplicity at the very beginning. So even if you’re a veteran eco-warrior, don’t belittle someone else’s humble beginnings. Let’s support each other in our path to living simply! Remember we’re all in different places in our lives.
Wouldn’t it be great to build life with your own two hands? I used to just swim in the flow of life. But then I decided there must be much more to life. I didn’t want to just take it as it came, I wanted to make it uniquely MINE!
Recently on my Facebook page I shared a story that I read about how much food is wasted in this country – everything from harvest waste or culls in the field to grocery store waste.
I commented that it was a shame that more edible & in-date food destined for the dumpsters for whatever cosmetic reason couldn’t be used instead to feed hungry people.
Many of my followers chimed in that it was a shame indeed. But one person was angered by the story for some reason that I still don’t quite understand. As a matter of fact he was indignant and abrasive to many various commenters.
Now I love FB and I typically enjoy it immensely. But this internet troll incident got me wondering if public social media sites like Facebook are really a friend or a foe?
