You and I must both the Choleric personalities. :)
The Cholerics are the "Hell, no!" personalities. leaders, survivors, etc.
I never understood depression/anxiety/suicidal tendencies until it became apparent in my own family. I began to study up and came to the realization that this is not a choice for many who are not the more defiant leader types.
I have made my own choice to help those I come in contact with that need help. Our org has helped many homeless, given them work etc., and helped them get back on their feet. I will continue to do this for as long as I am able.
As far as panhandlers go, it is your personal choice to help or not- that's up to you. For me, I'd rather have the choice to give or give not to a guy on a street corner than be forced by the state to support the welfare/medicaid/social security/irs/war/alphabets/MIC society any day.
