Poverty is one of the ugliest of human conditions.
It brings out the absolute worst and most ugly things in human beings. It is the button pusher and stressor.
The hopelessness that comes with this condition are heart rendering. It is the bleeding of human emotion of helplessness.
It destroys and shatters the soul and self-esteem.
It is this sense of hopelessness that brings on the darker condition of depression and in some cases suicide.
Poverty makes one feel like a failure in life, because of the pressures of our society. Society thinks that it has the right to judge each and every
human being as a success or failure based on it’s measure of success.
When we fail to live up to that measure, the sense of hopelessness can be so engulfing that it starts to smother the soul.
Is it any wonder that there is more violence and suicide when in this human condition called poverty.
