I already work in a very liberal field full of entitlement mentality, but this would surpass everywhere I have worked. The people are those who have lived on government services all their lives or have been homeless. I understand there are often extenuating circumstances, such as mental illness, yet I am a firm believer in free will and personal responsibility. My question to myself is this: Can I work in this kind of environment and maintain my convictions? Can I treat these people with the love and respect they deserve as members of the human race and yet really hate what they have become? Am I enough of a humanitarian to give up some of my personal comforts to take a position that does not have growth potential within itself? Am I looking for a way out of considering it or do I know that I am too sensitive and not strong enough for the position?
Interesting questions, yet still no answers. They want to continue talking to me, if I am still interested. I am interested in the challenges it would produce, but I am not sure I would be the person to do the place justice. I think I would be looking for something different all along. I wish I could do it. Knowing that you were willing to make sacrifices to make life easier for others who did not have the advantages you did. It would be amazing to offer a different point of view to the entitlement, socialist mentality to change one mind even for one minute.
