People in today’s society has their own perspective or beliefs on certain things. You can’t expect someone to do something just because it is what you think is right or it is something you want them to do. Expectation is one of the things that puts us in a situation where we feel bad even though we shouldn’t in the first place. Sometimes even without the people telling us, we still expect them to do something that will please us but it turns out to be something that will only disappoint us.
Some people believes that the less fortunate ones, those who have less than what others have are the ones who won’t be able to give when you need something from them. Often times they are viewed as people who only begs because they don’t have a source of income to live through each day. But little do we know, that these people who we don’t usually give importance to are those who are the most kind-hearted and generous people.
In a social experiment, a homeless man was asked for food and money. Here’s what he did that will surely amaze you.
A man named as Jack approached this old man sitting on the path walk. He acted as if he was in need of food and asked the old man if he could give him something to eat. Without any hesitation the old homeless man offered what’s left of him even though it’s been hours since he last ate. The old man was used to be a truck driver but he got his license suspended due to some unattended tickets that was posted on his driver’s record. He was saving up to get his license back but didn’t have second thoughts of lending it to Jack when he said that he’s also in need of some financial help.
Jack was really amazed of what the man did despite of his situation. So what he did next surely changed the homeless man’s life. He let the old man wait for him and got himself 700 dollars to give to the man. When he went back to the old man, he started to confess what he did.
The old homeless man was so surprised and thankful that it even made him cry.
So you see, not all our perceptions about those less fortunate are true. Sometimes, those who have experienced life being at its worst are those who understands more of how it feels to be empty-handed so they try not to let it be experienced by others.
